Wow! What a trip. A seaplane ride from the Maroochy River over the Sunshine Coast was an awesome adventure to view our beautiful beaches from around 450 metres. A magical experience. Take-off and landing are from the Maroochy River. We did this trip with the doors off to add spice to the adventure. A big thank you to Shawn our pilot from Paradise Seaplanes.
Sunset in Paradise
Maureen and I often stroll with our dog Tess from Coolum Beach to Peregian Beach. It’s a stunning walk with few people. We break the walk with coffee at Peregian and then return. Allow two hours for this walk. I always take my camera and Sunday evening presented a stunning sunset. Coolum Beach is our slice of paradise. Come and enjoy it with your family AND your dog.
Wildlife at Point Perry
Point Perry is just at the bottom of the road. a two minute stroll from Point Lookout Pet Friendly Holiday House Coolum Beach. I often walk our dog Tess there and always go armed with my camera. You never know what you might see. This afternoon I was delighted to find an Osprey perched high over the water and an added bonus …. it was dinner time. Make sure you bring your camera when you visit and ask Richard for the best spots to catch Ospreys, Turtles, Whales and on occasion the odd lost seal …
A beautiful sunrise at Second Bay. A walk along the beach and then back to Point Lookout Coolum Beach holiday house to have breakfast on the deck and enjoy the beautiful ocean vistas. We live in paradise ..
Happy Australia Day. Wow! Wet. cold and windy. But we had fun. We took the family on a self drive boat hire trip along the Noosa River. We had our own on-board BBQ and radio system. Triple J Top 100 was the order of the day. The kids did some fishing and caught brim. Awesome. The O Boat Hire and the Noosa river are just 25 minute drive from Pet Friendly Holiday House Point Lookout Coolum Beach. We recommend O Boat Hire and have provided a link below. Have fun. Regards, Maureen and Richard.
And here’s us moored at our own ‘private’ beach …
