COOLUM BEACH THINGS TO DO
Coolum Beach is situated on the well-known Sunshine Coast. A tourist magnet and a marvel with its various wonders such as first class golf courses, vast beaches that invite surfers, awesome diving adventures, quite pleasant fishing experiences, underwater sea life for snorkeling, screaming out loud air diving adventures, enjoyable leash free beaches, great restaurants, hotels and resort accommodation, exiting hiking activities and much more that invites you.
It doesn’t matter if you arrive from north, south, east or west, Mount Coolum will greet you in view from a long distance. The entry to climb is frequently visited by tourists and often a rush at dawn for the early risers. Entry from Tannah Street which takes you up the mountain easily. It is a magnificent and spectacular view from the top of the mountain giving you a broadened sight from the coast of Noosa and the North Shore and south to Old Women Island, Maroochydore and Caloundra to the South.
Coolum has a fantastic swimming and surfing beach with white and sandy beaches stretching all the way north to Peregian and Noosa’s Sunshine Beach. There are two small coves at the First, Second and Third Bay that provide an incredible site for swimming and just relaxing soaking up the sun surf and sand. Also snorkelling on a calm day. On sunny days these coves provide shade from the heat in the afternoon.
Coolum’s Surf club is positioned on the beach that gives an incomparable view for dinners, quick drinks or a fine game on the pokies. The restaurant gives a range of good Aussie grub with seafood platters and big steaks. Usually on weekends the club invites a live band or DJ to please the crowd.
Golf Courses are set up at what was the well-known Coolum Hyatt Australian PGA Course now Palmer Resort, Mount Coolum’s course and the new Perigian Springs golf course. Competitions and other events are held all the time to the public. The clubs and carts are available at the clubhouse that can easily be rented.
