Stroll Moffat Beach Breakfast Dicky Beach


Stroll on Moffart Beach, Breakfast at The Giggling Goat

A new day emerges in spectacular fashion as we head up the highway to the most chilled out place on Earth, Moffat Beach. The Sunshine Coast is exactly what you expect from Queensland, blue sky, bluer ocean, golden sand, bronzed surfers and tropical vegetation. Any of the Sunshine Coast’s beaches should serve up a beautiful sunrise, with the added bonus of being able to take a relaxing stroll along the beach. We love the peace and quiet Moffat Beach produces. With fairly calm conditions and beautiful rock platforms, Moffat beach is just outside the hustle and bustle whilst being close enough to enjoy.

We spent a pleasant couple of hours walking our pup along the beach to the rocks at the southern end of the beach. Low tide is the best time to visit so the rock platforms are exposed, easier to get about and plenty of interesting shapes and textures in the rocks. For keen walkers they’re a Moffatt to Kings Beach journey which is part of Caloundra’s Coastal Pathway, a breathtaking nine-kilometre stretch of paths, meandering along Caloundra’s beaches from Bells Creek in the south to Point Cartwright in the north. 

There’s more to explore in both directions and, as in any Sunshine Coast seaside destination, cafes, eateries and picnic places abound. We headed back to Eleanor Shipley Memorial Park, which provides ocean views over the beach. Peaceful and serene with shade provided courtesy of the pine and pandanus trees that line the shore a perfect spot to chill and people watch.

Breakfast calling we headed to The Giggling Goat Emporium, located in Dicky Beach, which is a casual cafe that serves up a variety of tasty eats. The Giggling Goat is a superb breakfast place.  Aside from the good quality food and coffee they are dog friendly.  They go so far as to baking pumpkin and bacon biscuits for our four legged friends. We arrived, the cafe was just coming abuzz with customers and tables were disappearing quickly.

We ended picking the Corn Fritters with poached egg and bacon and the Mega Breakfast - two pieces of sourdough toast, two eggs poached, two rashers bacon, one sausage, one hash brown, grilled tomato, sauteed spinach and mushrooms, and a side of tomato relish. The food was very quick to come out and everything looked amazing. The portion sizes were good and everything was plated very well.

The Giggling Goat is a great little cafe that serves delicious food with amazing customer service and I highly recommend going there! You will definitely be glad that you did!

After some breakfast we headed to Shelly Beach which is one of the Sunshine Coast’s hidden gems. This lovely stretch of oceanfront is unpatrolled and not suitable for swimming meaning you’ll rarely see a crowd on the shore. In fact, you’ll often have the white sands and oceans views all to yourself.  Facing directly east, this is the perfect place to enjoy a tranquil sunrise or reconnect with nature on a solitary beach stroll.
