Once Around the Block: Queen Street, Nambour

Queen Street in Nambour is a quirky, one-way stretch of road, filled with pleasant surprises. You’ll stumble across great street art, along with interesting shops and cafés.

Husk and Honey is a gluten and grain-free café but you’d probably never pick it. The team uses fresh, local ingredients and everything is made in house. If you’re after a morning kickstart, the café’s tasty Tim Adams coffee is sure to do the trick! The lunch menu changes fortnightly, which keeps things interesting. Whilst in store you can also grab a range of gluten and grain-free provisions, including almond meal, sunflower seeds, pepitas, chia seeds, coconut oil, coconut flour, besan (chickpea flour) and more.

From coffee to creative spaces! Tara runs Vive Pachamama, a community-based art space, offering creative workshops and selling incredible local and international art pieces. Next door is Vive’s sister store, Wilga Pop Up. The beautiful clothing pieces on offer are handmade by Tara’s sister, Tamarind.

The Duke on Queen Street is only a few doors down and is the oldest barbershop on the Sunshine Coast. Keith Lipke was the founder of Queen Street’s barber in 1956. He recently retired at 81 years old and passed the barber shop on to his grandson, Dan Terry. The main aim at the Duke is for customers to enjoy a royal treatment at an affordable price. With each haircut, customers also receive a complimentary beer!

A trip down Queen Street in Nambour is well worth the stroll and no doubt, you’ll be back!
