Feel like a local on the Sunshine Coast by spending a Sunday in Peregian Beach, located between Noosa and Coolum. This small beach village is centrally located. Its easy to cruise along the streets barefoot with a kind of inner calm which is contagious here.
Peregian Beach is considered by many to be a gem; it’s easy to see why with its uncrowded beaches and pristine waters. Bordering the Noosa National Park and Lake Weyba National Park to the east; we suggest swapping the bustling vibes of Noosa for something a little more relaxed. You can get there quickly by car, or cycling from Noosa; taking in scenic views on a 7km paved bike path.
Join this vibrant, family-friendly community by walking about the town, dancing in the village square; or going for a swim on their patrolled beaches. We suggest heading to Peregian Beach on the 1st or 3rd Sunday of every month; take advantage of one, two, or dare we say both, of the town’s main events. The first is the Peregian Beach Markets on Kingfisher Drive. Stock up on crafts and local art, fresh produce and fare to pack a picnic for the day. Stay a bit longer and enjoy the Peregian Originals, a concert in the park from 1 to 4 pm. You won’t find any covers here, as artists are encouraged to perform their original songs and tunes.
Try Periwinkle Cafe, or scoop up some delectable pastries from Le Bon Delice. Or you can play gardener for a day and check out Veggie Village, a community garden filled with organic produce. If you want to do more than take in the view; Peregian Beach also provides Emu Mountain access from Havana Road.
Peregian Beach is an eclectic patchwork; filled with artisans, vintage shops, and markets all captivating your attention. With just a stone’s throw from Noosa, be sure to add Peregian to your Sunshine Coast itinerary.
