Escape the city for a day and take a short one hour drive down to one of my favourite beaches, Wurtulla in the Sunshine Coast. Here you’ll find clean white sand as far as your eye can see, and the sun-shine all day long.
Wurtulla Beach, Sunshine Coast
If you’re not familiar with what our beaches are like in Australia, you’ll be surprised to realise that we don’t have a restaurant or bar sitting behind each one of our beaches. Maybe it’s our mentality, or more-so that we just have too much beach to create a suitable beach-to-bar ratio for this to be possible.
If you want more of an equal beach to dining experience, head over to Kings Beach, which is one of the most popular and built up beaches in the Sunshine Coast. This area is also great for those who are staying in the Sunshine Coast and want to be in the thick of things. Here you’ll discover a number of restaurants, cafes and bars, while behind Kings Beach you’ll find a park lining the edge of the sand, which is a lovely area to have a BBQ picnic with friends, or family.
Gluten Free Sunshine Coast
I checked out Coffee Cat Kings Beach for a quick coffee and a sweet treat. They have a lot of gluten free cake options with laid back set up and beach views. The guys working there are super friendly, helpful, and so happy to be there, truly encapsulating the Aussie lifestyle for tourists visiting.
Below you can see my sickly-sweet gluten free banoffee pie and behind a gluten mars bar cheesecake, yum!
I’ll be back for sure.
