Our Reviews!

Glorious views & marvellous food

I thoroughly enjoyed the opportunity to hear one of Australia’s most engaging and authentic authors - Trent Dalton speak at Noosa Alive. Trent’s entertaining anecdotes, the intimate venue, the glorious views and the marvellous Boat House food made for a memorable night. Can’t wait to see what’s lined up for next year’s festival. I will definitely be back! Thank you Noosa Alive!!

I highly recommend Reignite Festival

It was an absolute treat to attend the Reignite Festival in 2021. Both delightfully and entertaining. I left feeling very inspired and eager for the next event.
Over a delicious dinner which really topped it all off! Thanks very much for organising a great event and I look forward to more.
Much appreciated

I can’t wait for next year!

We attended the Noosa Alive dinner at FISH PARKRIDGE this year. It was absolutely incredible. We especially loved the entertainment… such a wonderful and creative arts performance that made us feel alive. It was engaging, funny and made us want to sing & dance. The food was excellent and the mixed array of guests showed us that there is a fantastic arts community right on our doorstep. We really hope to be part of more Noosa Alive events next year as this was our first year.

I highly recommend Noosa alive!

We recently attended an amazing event at The Boathouse with Trent Dalton.
The food was exquisite and so generous for the price of the ticket and the interview was next level. We got so much more than we thought the ticket price was worth. To hear such an accomplished speaker speak so openly and rawly was such a treat. We didn’t want it to end and knew it went way longer than we were promised. I would definitely attend another event like this without hesitation.
