Category: Eastern Beaches


The area between Peregian Beach and Sunshine Beach to the south and east of Noosa Heads on the Sunshine Coast in Queensland, Australia, is commonly referred to “Eastern Beaches”.

The suburbs on the Eastern Beaches branch off the central road through the area, David Low Way, which hugs the coastline from Maroochydore in the south to Noosa Junction in the north.

At the southern end, Peregian Beach offers a hub of seaside living with low rise units, classic beach shacks and a unique shopping precinct Peregian Square built around the original site of what was once the town’s public pool.

The Peregian Village now includes an IGA supermarket, a large variety of coffee shops, restaurants, fashion and interior design shops along with services such as an optometrist, hairdresser and a doctor’s surgery.

The other commercial hubs in the area are at Sunrise Beach and Sunshine Beach – with Sunshine Beach Surf Club recently re-opened after a $7.5 million renovation. Sunshine Beach has a convenience shop and a host of restaurants and services – Sunrise is famous for its bakery and butcher – and also has a medical centre.

All up there are close to 8000 people living along the strip in a mix of million dollar beachside homes, units, old beach houses and late 80s brick and tile homes.
