"Sunshine Beach"

Sunshine Beach is a long beach which merges into other beaches and stretches all the way down the coast. There is a small village with plenty of top restaurants, Sum Yung Guys, Embassy XO, Moushka, and fratellinis as well as the brand new Surf Club boasting fabulous food, drinks and music. There are also plenty of great coffee shops Fomo, The deck, Costa Noosa and Jam Cafe.

The Marble Bar is a popular meeting point for young and old to enjoy a cocktail or a nice glass of wine.

The local bus stops right outside the shops and restaurants and the Surf club has a community bus for those staying locally.

The village atmosphere is a major attraction to Sunshine Beach where the houses are tightly held and prices have held their value seemingly well above the rest of Noosa for many years. There are some magnificent beach front homes leading all the way up to where Sunshine Beach joins the National Park. The beach is patrolled all year and is a popular attraction for people exercising and dog walking on the designated dog beach in the Northern corner.

If you walk up the stairs at the end of the beach they meander around to Alexander Bay and along the way you can take a detour down to the caves on the lower track.

Absolute perfect location for a beachside lifestyle - grab your board , head down for a coffee and a surf and enjoy the Community spirit.

"Beach and National Park on your doorstep"

Sunshine beach is a little gem of the Sunshine Coast as it sits between the main road and the beach. It is bordered by Noosa National Park so it is easy to access this as well as kilometres of white sandy beach with great surf. There is a small village feel with the convenience of shops, restaurants and the local surf club. Children are able to walk to both a State Primary and High School as well as the private Catholic School. It is a 5 minute drive to Noosa and close to large supermarkets, cinema etc. The hills and trees provide both an interesting and green environment that is full of birds.

"A Desirable Address"

Sunshine Beach, near Noosa, on Queensland’s Sunshine Coast, has become one of the most sought after addresses in the area. It is blessed with a hill that gives many homes ocean views, and a small shopping area which is great for the cafe society. It is only a short drive to the larger shops at Noosa Junction, and of course to Hastings Street. The homes are mostly modern, with lots of glass.

"Sunshine Beach is for the surf lovers, hilly and interesting."

Sunshine Beach is a fairly small suburb 3 mins drive from Noosa main street and set amongst the hills leading off the beach. There are some really lovely settings with spectactular views out over the ocean. The beach itself is a surf beach and very popular with the locals.

The shopping centre is quite small and the locals get to know each other quite well at the little cafes. There are quite a few retired people here and also a number of the homes are 'holiday homes' for Brisbane residents who use them for weekenders.

Cost wise the real estate has crept up over the years and many a property now sports a very modern house.

Only 3 mins from Noosa residents seem to have the best of both worlds: the glitz of Noosa, yet the more quiet laid back lifestyle of Sunshine Beach. As well as that it is only 1.45 hr drive to Brisbane.
