A trip to Land and Sea Brewery, Noosa’s flagship craft beer powerhouse is a must for any visitor to Queensland’s Sunshine Coast. Not only is it uber-trendy and kid (and dog) friendly, but they also have some top-notch beers on tap worth sampling.
Read on to find out just why we love Land and Sea Brewery so much, and why it deserves its place as one of the top Sunshine Coast Breweries.
Where is Land and Sea Brewery Located?
You can find the impressive premises in Noosaville’s industrial estate at 17 Venture Drive. It is tucked in just behind Bunnings there. I tell you what, I wish I worked in this industrial area just so I could have cheeky lunchtime pints!
You are under 10 minutes from Noosa Heads, and under 2 hours from Brisbane CBD.

Land and Sea Brewery Opening Hours
This neat brewery is open every beautiful Sunshine Coast day.
- Monday to Friday 11 am – 10 pm
- Saturday and Sunday 10 am – 10 pm
Is Land and Sea Suitable for Kids?
YES! Our kids loved it there. They had lawn surrounding the ‘grown-up’ tables, with little picnic tables and chairs for the little ones too. The kids could play Giant Jenga, draw on cool little chalkboard easels, or play pinball (for a dollar).
There is a dedicated kids menu where you will find all the usual items and a decent bowl of hand-cut chips sets you back $5 (plus $1 for sauce).
Not only does Land and Sea Brewery cater for your little people, but dogs are also welcomed with open arms. Do you know there is even a dog’s menu?!

Our Land and Sea Brewery Experience
In a nutshell, we can’t wait to go back. The brewery is in a gorgeous space with trendy industrial feel furnishings. Credit to the wonderfully friendly staff who are so skilled and energetic, making every guest feel welcome with a bright smile.
Beautiful people from all over the coast converge on this contemporary brewery and it is obviously a favourite of a well-heeled Noosa crowd, without any pretentiousness.
The delicious food complements the richly refreshing beers and makes for a perfect all-round experience. We got to sit and chill for a while and the kids built giant Jenga and left us alone for once haha!
