Day Trip To Caloundra Sunshine Coast


Day Trip To Caloundra, Sunshine Coast. Queensland Australia

Sure COVID19 has seen better days. But things are starting to move again. And if you need a reminder of how special we have it, take a stroll along Mooloolaba Beach on a beautiful spring morning; climb Mt Coolum; check out the quaint shops in Montville; or explore the spectacular paths along Noosa National Park and the Caloundra headland. This week, after a draining week at the office, we escaped early and took our furry friend (Shari) out for a treat to one of the best dog beaches on the Sunshine Coast, Moffat Beach. 

Moffat Beach lies between Moffat Head and Tooway Lake. Moffat Beach is connected to Shelly Beach by a coastal pathway over the headland. Dogs are permitted off leash on the beach, as indicated on the provided signs from 4pm to 8am

The beaches are ace, the people are the most bonza you'll ever meet and the lifestyle is the sort that turns Sydney and Melbourne corporate types green with envy.

Normally we would head up to The Pocket Espresso Bar, which is a unique little piece of paradise where you can escape, rejuvenate & fix almost everything and the Wicked Guru Coffee, is awesome. But this time we headed just a sticks throw from Moffat Beach to the newly opened Molly and Co, which is a great addition to the local cafe scene. Set well back from the pavement, it features pretty decor and comfortable table seating both under cover and outside, plus there is even a cute enclosed doggie play area which Shari had to check out.

We thoroughly enjoyed our Saturday morning breakfasts of bacon, egg, cheese on Turkish bread, plus waffles with bacon. Meantime, our fur baby lapped up her puppy cino, declaring it pooch perfect.

Molly and Co is run by very friendly and accommodating staff and features a very reasonably priced menu. We now have a great café to stop in when we are up the coast again and will sure be a winner with both the local dog-owning fraternity and visiting holidaymakers alike.

Breakfast finished we did a quick stop at Kawana Waters Artisans & Farmers Market, which are on every Saturday morning at the Kawana State Primary School showcasing Sunshine Coasts producers and artisans. Kim had a quick look, grabbing some fresh fruit.

Kim then checked out a couple of shops before we took a dip at the east facing calm waters of  Golden Beach on Pumicestone Passage, which is ideal for safe swimming, windsurfing, boating, canoeing and fishing.

With the sunny weather the Sunshine Coast is a continuous invitation to adventure outside with your four-legged friend. Many dog lovers have made this part of South East Queensland their home, and the area has responded with plenty of dog friendly cafes, bars, hikes, and beaches you can visit with your pup.
