Whale Watching Season is Here

It’s whale watching season. Humpback whales begin their southern migration in September and October. Check them out from our Coolum Beach Pet Friendly Holiday houses. Or perhaps stroll to Point Perry two hundred metres down the street or walk to the new whale watching platform at Second Bay. Lookout for tell-tale spouts – tail slapping – and full body breaches. We supply binoculars in both houses. Good luck and enjoy.

Coolum Beach’s new whale watching platform is the place to breathe in the sunrise with a coffee or a moonrise with a glass of wine. The walking trail to Point Cartwright has similar, but smaller, lookouts. Lookout for turtles and dolphins. Try Point Perry. Just a few hundred metres from your holiday house. Your dog will enjoy the walk too. And your dog will appreciate those special moments with you.  Maybe just sit on your deck and enjoy the ocean views. It’s your time to relax. You choose. Enjoy.

Mount Coolum: glorious views and great exercise

 

Mount Coolum – glorious views, great trail, awesome exercise. Holidays are about family and your dog. Relax and get fit. Walk with your family and dog on the beach, run with your dog at sunrise, run with your dog at sunset. Chill with your family and dog over a glass of champagne. Coffee too. Enjoy.

Seaplane trip over the Sunshine Coast

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.

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 …

Sunrise at Pet Friendly Holiday Houses Coolum Beach

Beautiful weather here at Point Lookout Pet Friendly Holiday Houses. This amazing sunrise was captured by Richard at First Bay.  These experiences can be captured when you visit. This bay is just at the bottom of the road. A few minutes walk. So whether you want a sunrise, a swim or just a stroll this is a truly beautiful beach. Have Fun. Cheers, Maureen and Richard
