About 1 kilometre north of Coolum, is the estuary to the surf beach. The creek splits into two and runs into a shallow body of water which is ideal for swimming.
A short walk will take you down to the unpatrolled surf beach. This is a great place to fly kites, take 2.5 kilometre stroll along the beach to Coolum, or enjoy the surf.
If it's picnicking you want, there's a shaded grassy picnic area with toilet facilities just a hop away from the shallow swimming area.
Bordering the swimming area is a grassy bank, where you can sit and watch the kids playing, fishing, or boogie boarding.
Kids seem to have a great time running up and down the sand dunes (which at present, are under regeneration).
This is a dog friendly area with dogs and their owners enjoying the freedom of splashing around freely, chasing their favourite ball or stick through the shallow waters and generally having a great time.
Stummers Creek is also a drop off point for parachutists
, always a great sight as you see them glide gently down to the sand.
Often you will see paddle boarders and kayakers alike enjoying the peace and quiet as they silently drift down the creek.
is very popular with the locals,and on a hot day parking can be at a premium.
I thoroughly recommend for a lazy, relaxed day out.
