Alexandra Headland

Alexandra Headland, known by the locals as ‘Alex’, is a small coastal community situated on Queensland’s Sunshine Coast. The Town has a relaxed and laid back atmosphere that compliments the soothing rolling surf and inviting beaches. This Town is also ringed by Mooloolaba, Buderim and Maroochydore with a superb coastal sweep to the north and bush setting 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 beach has a patrolled swimming area provided 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. For the skaters and bikers, there is an outdoor skate park right alongside the beach. Also provided are picnic and barbecue facilities, so why not enjoy lunch on the barbie 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.

Distance from Brisbane (State Capital): 98 kilometres.

Where Are Australia's Best Beaches?

Australia's Best Beaches

Australia has miles and miles of shoreline but which beaches are really great? Ultimately it depends on what you're looking for in a beach. Pristine wilderness without a single footprint in sight, the sparkle of cosmopolitan high rise on the waters edge, the adrenalin pumping roar of a powerful surf beach, or quite simply the perfect white squeaky sand that squelches between your toes.
