Come to Coolum for your next holiday. It lies at the geographical center of the Sunshine Coast so it is within easy reach of all the local activities. It has plenty of fantastic holiday accommodations and the beach is one of the best on the coast. Coolum is about 15 minutes drive south of Noosa so it is still close enough to be able to enjoy all that Noosa has to offer and it is about 15 minutes drive north from Marcoola where the Sunshine Coast airport is located. This means that it is really easy to get to Coolum from anywhere in Australia.
Coolum has lots of great accommodations ranging from holiday homes, and international resorts to apartment-style beachfront resorts that are so popular with Australians on holiday. This is the best type of family accommodation that there is. Many of these resorts are either on the beachfront overlooking the ocean or only one street back and within easy walking distance. The Hyatt Coolum resort provides luxury accommodation in the region and is a fantastic place to stay, especially if you like playing golf. Golfing fans should also compare this with the Novotel Twin Waters resort at Marcoola, which has a fantastic golf course.
The Sunshine Coast has fantastic shopping facilities with Coolum being surrounded by great shopping plazas. The new Civic Center at Noosa and Sunshine Plaza at Maroochydore are both within easy reach of Coolum. Cafes and restaurants are everywhere. Holiday attractions like the Australia Zoo at Beerwah are close enough for a day trip to entertain the kids and Underwater World at Mooloolaba is a place you can visit often.
Coolum is one of the best places on the Sunshine Coast for a family holiday.
