“Whilst up at Noosa Heads take a walk along the track at Noosa National Park. It is a great way to see our coastal beauty. Depending on the season, or time of day, you may see koalas, turtles, whales, and dolphins.”

“(Sunshine Beach) only a 4 min walk from our pad A favourite with locals. Great customer service, quality and effort this team puts into its work every single day, no wonder almost the entire coast makes an extra effort to drive and fight for a park to get that little cup of coffee to help kickstart the day. With the Coffee Roaster machine right in the middle of the shop for all to see, operated by Gavin and Brett all day everyday is one of the key features why everybody has to go to Costa Noosa. When Gavin (the owner) is not roasting pulling out each bean at a time to make sure his roast is perfect, he is usually mingling with his customers and now friends, and from time to time Gavin is seen giving their kids a free ‘throw in the air’ but then having them following him demanding “again again’! The Girls on the floor seem to be going 110k per hour but are always friendly enough to ask how you are or share a passing laugh. ”

“Tucked away in a back street of Mooloolaba, The Velo Project is a local favourite. Lunches, brunch, and breakfast are fabulous and although the menu changes regularly - there is always something amazing to try. ”

“The Pocket Espresso Bar has good breakfast and lunch options and good coffee! They're also open until late on Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday night with some happy hour specials available. Score a seat at the front and watch the waves on Moffat Beach, sit inside or head out the back and grab a seat in the courtyard. They have lots of healthy options and some not so healthy options. It's the perfect balance! It's only a 1.2km walk or a quick 2-minute drive away. ”
