"Beach lifestyle"

Warana is a beachside suburb with no busy roads to cross to kilometres of pristine beach. The beauty of Warana beach is that there are no high-rises overlooking you and you get the feeling you could be miles away secluded in your own paradise.
Warana is centrally located and is set to be positioned perfectly for future infrastructure such as the new Sunshine Coast Hospital and Kawana town centre, it has easy access to the highway and local public transport.
Warana has some fantastic local shops which include “Be fresh”, “The fruit shed”, butchers, newsagent, and bakery all within easy access without the hassle of having to go through the masses of a shopping centre. The local schools and daycare centre are all in close proximity and the rowing on Lake Kawana or weekend entertainment of Stockland Park make for a fun day out.
Warana has an excellent community atmosphere and retains the spirit of the Sunshine Coast of the early days.

"A residential suburb between two of the main towns on the Sunshine Coast."

Kawana has a rather unusual make up. It is a small residential situated only 10 minutes south of the popular Mooloolaba holiday area and 20 minutes north of the family holiday desitination of Caloundra. Kawana Shopping Centre and business centre is only 3 mins drive to Kawana ocean beach and is backed up by man made canals.

South of the township on the canals a new Olympic standard rowing course has been built and it is expected there will be international events here on a regular basis.

Kawana tends to be a high residential rental area, but also has multi million dollar homes along the river frontage and along the canals. The building of the canals behind Kawana have formed an island which is known as Kawana Island. This has proved to be a very popular area and is growing in popularity as the new development is moving inland.
