Posted on October 27, 2022November 1, 2022 by WillemThursday/ the Sunshine Coast ☀️ The drive time from Brisbane up to Noosa Heads was a little over 2 hours. We drove up to the Sunshine Coast today, and stopped at three beaches for a little time in the sun and in the surf. First, we stopped at a coffee shop at King’s Beach in Caloundra. My coffee of choice here in Queensland is a Long Black: 2/3rds boiling water into a cup then extracting a double shot of espresso (60ml) over the water.P.S. What I am actually having here is a cup of Long Black with milk .. so is that a Short White Long Black? 🙂 King’s Beach in Caloundra has a wide and clean beach with well-appointed facilities. The surf was great and the water temperature very pleasant. King’s Beach also has a saltwater swimming pool. The seawater in the pool is replenished with a pump and drained back into the sea. Noosa Heads is at an estuary, and right by the large, scenic area with a mountain summit walk and trails of Noosa National Park. This picture, taken from the boardwalk, is just east of the Main Beach there. More and more rocky outcrops start to appear as one continues walking. This is Sunshine Beach, just south of Noosa National Park. Surfers from Sunshine Beach Surf Club are in the water in the distance. Every now and again on the Sunshine Motorway (Route 70), there would be a bridge crossing a body of water, with residential developments visible in the distance.
