The dreaded stair climb to Upper Hastings Street
So let’s be honest, this is more of a punishment zone than a beauty spot, however it deserves inclusion nevertheless.
For those who don’t know it, there is a staircase of 200 stairs starting at Morwong Drive in Noosa leading to Upper Hastings Street. Although 200 stairs may not sound much, trust me it gets the heart beating fast and the thighs and glutes burning.
For best results treat the stairs as a piece of exercise equipment and vary your session so as not to get bored. Decide how many times you wish to go up or for how long you wish to tackle them and go for it. Take inspiration from the others who will also be exercising there. You often see people taking the stairs two at a time or jumping two footed up them. I have tried this and it is hard work.
Pause briefly to take in the view at the top and then back down to start over. Just remember that when you have reached you goals you are a stone drop from Noosa’s beautiful beach and the opportunity to cool off in the ocean.
