Coolum offers a variety of cafés, restaurants and shopping as well as the very popular Coolum Beach Surf Club.The commercial center of Coolum is elevated above the beach and the main road called David Lowe Way runs right along the beachfront. There are a number of excellent new accommodation resorts located right here within walking distance of the shopping center and its great restaurants and cafes. The elevation above the beach ensures that most of the resorts are not only just a short walk to the beach, but almost all of the resorts have beautiful ocean views.
