A Weekend in Alexandra Headland, Sunshine Coast

Those of you who read my post on Friday will know that we have had a weekend away and our destination was the Sunshine Coast, Alexandra Headland to be precise.

Alexandra Headland is a small town, population of around 4,000, on the coast of Queensland between Mooloolaba and Maroochydore. The easy way to get there from Brisbane is to head on up the Bruce Highway, but the prettier way is to go through Dayboro, and that’s what we did.

Dayboro is an even smaller town, population 1,692 according to the 2011 census. It’s small size doesn’t stop it from having a pub though…

Dayboro PO and Church… and a few other shops sprinkled here and there. But the best part of driving through Dayboro on the way to the Sunshine Coast are the views…

Joe's Waterhole…in fact, I think they have two. But most people go to Eumundi for the markets, called, wait for it, Eumundi Markets…
