The state of Queensland is a high profile tourist destination visited by locals, domestic and international visitors alike and Coolum Beach is no exception. Queensland is a truly great destination with an array of tourist attractions often based on natural drawcards such as ‘the reef’, the rainforest and the Outback. A truly common theme for Queensland is an emphasis on ‘sun, sand and surf’. Where better to enjoy this trifecta than the Sunshine Coast.

Sunshine Coast

The ‘Sunny Coast’, as it is called by the locals, is a favourite of many.  A wonderful tourist mecca, flanked by rolling green hills, the eerie shapes of the Glasshouse mountains, long stretches of golden beach all giving way to the deep blue sea. An hour’s drive from Brisbane via the motorway from Brisbane airport, or by flight direct to the airport at the Sunny Coast where you can hire a car or campervan, this magnificent location is readily accessible to all.

Coolum Beach

When it comes to the magnificence of the Sunshine Coast, it is hard to pass up the beauty of Coolum Beach.  Midway along the Sunshine Coast, with ease of parking, surf patrols, gentle sloping beach, and even an off leash dog area, there is a lot to love about this beach getaway. But any beach getaway is only as good as the place you choose to stay, its proximity to the beach, its facilities and its value.  So now let us go to the Coolum Beach Holiday Park…

Coolum Beach Holiday Park

As the name implies, this holiday park is directly adjacent Coolum beach. Several direct access routes lead from the park to different areas along the sandy expanse of foreshore. The venue has excellent manager/owners who keep themselves directly involved in all aspects of park life.  This ‘hands on’ approach ensures a venue focused on good maintenance, cleanliness, amenity, staff rapport, tourist advice and efficiency – all designed to provide the best of customer service. This focus is all about a super positive ‘experience’ for you, the customer. The venue is proudly a member of the Family Parks Chain. Like so many other Family Parks this venue is in fact pet friendly on sites. No need to leave the four legged friend behind – just bring a walking leash, and enjoy the time together. Better still, parts of Coolum beach are also ‘off leash’ friendly for your pets.

After the beach

A great day at the beach is enhanced by the capacity for some fantastic alternative activities. Coolum Beach Holiday Park can certainly help. Directly opposite the venue is a long expanse of specialty shops.  Everything from takeaway outlets, salons, souvenir shops, bakeries, surf retailers, clothing and a myriad other options for your browsing pleasure. Restaurants compete with some excellent clubs to challenge your culinary tastes.  Better still they are all within walking distance so risk a fine wine or two as well. Feel like a drive – head up the hills for organic foods, unique experiences at the ‘ginger factory’, pick up a treasure at Eumundi markets, listen to blues music at Tewantin – and the list goes on.

Coolum Beach Holiday Park – where great guest experiences meet the beach.

Remember to slip, slop and slap!
