Retire on Coast?

Looking to retire on the Sunshine Coast?

Alexandra Headland, known by the locals as 'Alex', is a coastal town situated on Queensland's Sunshine Coast. The township has a relaxed and laid back atmosphere that complements the soothing rolling surf and inviting beaches. Alexandra Headland is ringed by Mooloolaba, Buderim and Maroochydore with a superb coastal sweep to the north and bush foothills to the west. Alexandra Headland's main attraction is its magnificent coastal frontage of beach, headland and parks extending for kilometres north and south. The swimming beach is patrolled by the Alexandra Headland Surf Club. On any day, visitors can enjoy watching the surfers, or better yet join them.

There are many places to sign up for surf lessons and rent boards. There are plenty of foreshore picnic and barbecue facilities; so why not enjoy lunch on the beach with family and friends. While Alexandra Headland has maintained its small town charm, it is only minutes from major Sunshine Coast shopping centres and attractions.

With the Brisbane CBD just a 90 minute drive away, and with the beauty of hinterland villages like Maleny, Montville and Landsborough just a short drive away, there is much to see and do. Australia Zoo, Aussie World and a plethora of other attractions can offer plenty of options to keep grand kids entertained, and the local food and produce trails, as well as exceptional restaurants cafes and eateries are all within a short commute from Tantula Rise. It truly is a spectacular place to call home.
