"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.
