A new writer, I live on the beautiful Sunshine Coast. I am always finding something different to explore...

Fun & friendly for the whole family
About 1 kilometre north of Coolum, Stumers Creek 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.

Safe Swimming
Dogs and People alike enjoy a safe swimming area
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.

Popular for Parachutists
Gently gliding down
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.

Stumers Creek is very popular with the locals,and on a hot day parking can be at a premium.

I thoroughly recommend Stumers Creek for a lazy, relaxed day out.
