Days out: Coolum Cliffs Boardwalk, Coolum Beach, Queensland

Check our Instagram page to see more of the Coolum Cliffs Boardwalk – what a beautiful beach to walk on. It was great to see Nippers out training and so many enjoying the location on the popular Sunshine Coast, north of Brisbane.

If you are staying at Coolum, try to walk up for sunset as well as a sunrise or earlier morning walk. On my morning stroll – I firstly walked north, then back south, up the boardwalk to Wilkinson Park on top of the headland and was rewarded with a whale splashing! There are tables, chairs, toilets and a covered area at the top. So you could bring a picnic, as it only takes a few minutes to get there!

Also check out the artwork along the way, the ceramic panels depict local flora, fauna and activities. The boardwalk starts south of Coolum Surf Club and Coolum Beach Holiday Park.

If you are really keen, take in more of the Sunshine Coastal Pathway, which extends over 90 km from Pelican Waters to Tewantin. However – it’s only 7 km to walk north to Perigian Beach, where you’ll find more delicious eateries, unique shops and terrific markets.

Next time I’ll tackle Mt Coolum. It is only 800 m to the top, but it is a difficult one. Promised views sound good – coastlines north and south, canefields and even the Glasshouse Mountains, in the Sunshine Coast Hinterland. Find it just south of Coolum – it starts in the car park just on the right at the start of Jarnahill Drive off Tanah Street West.
