So, when in Rome, you wouldn't miss a visit to the Colosseum or exploring Vatican City - and the same is true to Coolum Beach - there are a few things you simply can’t miss out on when you visit our sunny shores.
- Venture To Hell’s Gate, If You Dare
Dramatically named but actually one of the most natural wonders, The Sunshine Coast has to offer, Hell’s Gate is a high bluff, accessible by an enjoyable stroll, it offers spectacular views of the entire Sunshine Coast coastline from Double Island Point to the end of Alexandria Bay. This is a sight to see if there ever was one and you simply cannot miss out basking in the beauty that Hell’s Gate’s view has to offer.
- Get A Taste Of Local Life
When visiting any location, you need to check out the local life and see how the locals live. Close to Coolum Beach, Preregian Beach Village Square, boasting its authentic 'village' roots with a modern 'boho' edge, is a popular bustling hotspot you just have to visit if you’re looking to entertain the children, grab a delectable bite to eat, enjoy a relaxing cup of coffee and do some much-deserved holiday shopping!
- Fall In Love With Natural Falls
While the beach always offers scenery of water, why not visit Kondalilla Falls and enjoy natural water of the flowing kind. This is a definite spot to visit when in Coolum so pack a picnic, your camera and backpack and head to these falls. And fall in love even harder with our area’s flowing falls by taking a trip to Buderim Falls. BBQ with family and friends or enjoy one of the walking trails closely surrounding these falls which is set amid a rainforest.
If ever you’re in Coolum Beach, make sure you don’t pass up the opportunity to experience any one of these three unique and exciting activities unique to Coolum and The Sunshine Coast. Coolum has everything you need to spend every day of your holiday happy and fulfilled
