Coolum Beach

Suburb

It’s not Everest – but Mount Coolum has its own claim to fame as the second largest rock in the world. A grand volcanic dome that offers 360 degree views of the region, the mountain presides over the landscape of leafy backstreets and this beautiful coastal town.

Coolum Beach has a laid-back, holiday atmosphere which makes it quite distinct from the hustle and bustle of neighbouring beach towns. The home break of pro surfer Julian Wilson, the beach’s consistent waves and glassy waters make it a favourite for surfers and body boarders.

Coolum Beach is backed by a shopping and entertainment strip featuring a range of fine dining and casual eateries. Fronted by a large grassy beachfront park and skate ramp, it’s a great spot for barbecues, playing cricket and kicking a ball. The park is also the location for the Coolum Twilight Markets (seasonal) and outdoor movies during the school holidays.

Coolum Beach has a proud surf club culture and lifesavers have patrolled the waters since 1919. The local surf club welcomes visitors and is a wonderful place to enjoy quality bistro fare and watch the waves roll in to this holiday paradise.
