Sunshine Coast attractions


Sunshine Coast hotels

Located just to the south of Noosa, Peregian is enjoying a renaissance at the moment as it emerges from the shadow of its northern neighbour and finds its own groove. Peregian does Sunshine Coast lifestyle extremely well blending access to a stunning surf and swimming beach with casual dining, shopping and village life. Mooching around the shops at Peregian and refuelling on a little something from one of the local cafes by day is a great way to while away the hours and melt away the stress. There are plenty of interesting boutiques, gift wares and home wares shops to browse through. By night there are some charming local restaurants to dine in that ooze coastal casual ambiance and offer international menus.

On the first and third Sunday of every month, there are arts and handicrafts markets held right near the Peregian Surf Lifesaving Club. From 7am until 12:30pm you can wander from stall to stall sampling local produce, purchase fashion from local designers, get a unique souvenir to take home from local artisans and fill your belly with a delicious hot brekky. The deck of the Peregian Surf Club is the ideal place from which to survey the town and beach while sipping an ice cold beer and enjoying one of the meals from its Drift Restaurant – this is a particularly popular post on a Sunday afternoon with live music held in the park and a lively community atmosphere present.

Lake Weyba National Park lies at the western edge of Peregian and you can visit one of the coast’s best kept secrets for eco tours, bird watching tours or canoe tours, which can also be accompanied by a picnic on the lake’s shores.
