Sunshine Coast Beaches Near Brisbane

How many Beaches are there on the Sunshine Coast? A lot, that’s how many and it would take a couple of days to visit them all. But if you have one weekend and some nice weather you can see most of them.

The first beach we stopped at was Coolum beach it is easy to get to straight off the main st of Coolum we were there during low tide an d recent storms had washed some sand away from rocky head lands leaving more rock exposed. Because there was very little swell this aloud people to snorkel around the rocks. There was a lot of marine life to see like sea turtles, fish and wobbegong sharks.

We then ventured south toward Maroochy River to Mudjimba Beach. From Mudjimba beach you could see old lady island. We came out at the flagged area near twin waters resort which has a little walk through, the water at the beach was perfect for swimming bright blue and a little warm =). We walked all the way down to the river mouth and looked across to Mooloolaba.

From Mudjimba we went to Mooloolaba. Mooloolaba is one of the more touristy areas on the sunshine coast with plenty of cafes and restaurants. The Beach At Mooloolaba has been fantastic of late, some of the beaches on the sunshine coast had lost a lot of sand through bad weather but Mooloolaba has been unaffected.

There were 2 other Beaches that we visited Dicky Beach at Caloundra and Noosa Beach at Noosa.
Dicky Beach was fantastic It’s a little bit different than other Queensland Beaches because the sand is more coarse but still amazing. One of the cool things about Dicky Beach is the wreck of the SS Dicky had been exposed after recent storms that was cool to see. Noosa Beach is always a favourite what can I say even when its wet and stormy it’s still great to visit.
