Those of you who experience freezing winters in Europe cannot possibly imagine the beach in winter.
We in sub tropical Queensland are lucky to have mild temperatures ( well most of the time) and beautiful sunny skies in winter.
So, I was most fortunate to have been invited to spend a few days at a gorgeous beach house on Sunrise Beach.
Sunrise Beach is situated just south of Sunshine Beach on Queensland’s Sunshine Coast. A close parallel in landscape and views to Sunshine Beach, Sunrise Beach is set on a pair of ridgelines that look out over the Pacific Ocean. One of few regions offering an absolute beachfront location. Sunrise Beach offers fantastic views out towards Moolooba and Sunshine Beach. The region is a little quieter than central Noosa making it a popular place to stay when visiting the Sunshine Coast.
With the National Park to the west, Sunrise Beach is a leafy suburb surrounded by lush native bushland. The ambience is carried over into the houses, ensuring many properties have retained native bush on their land to minimise environmental impact and harmonise with the surrounding natural environment.
There is a small strip of cafes and shops along the beachfront and a small shopping area. Its also just a few minutes to the vibrant boutique shopping and dining precinct of Hastings Street in central Noosa.
