Come and visit... or better yet move in
ORIGINALLY known as Potts Point, Alexandra Headland is closely aligned with the history of its neighbouring suburbs and the two bordering rivers of Maroochy and Mooloolah.
Originally forming part of William Pettigrew’s 133ha property, the land was purchased in 1864 as the first land sale in the Maroochy District. During his ownership, the land became Pettigrew’s base for his timber business.
Thomas O’Connor purchased the acreage in 1903 and the land was subdivided and sold as individual allotments along the front in August 1915.
From 1923 onwards, this beachside suburb really started to develop and make its mark on the Sunshine Coast map.
During that time, O’Connor renamed the area Alexandra Headland in honour of Queen Alexandra, wife of the late King Edward VII.
Advancing its real estate profile in the 1990s, the precinct became a tourist hotspot with the development of the Mirage Resort, Alexandra Beach Resort and Seaforth Apartments as well as the retail development boom.
This confidence in the market encouraged other developers and so began an expansion of various other resort style apartments and residential homes.
Referred to by locals as ‘Alex’, this relaxed lifestyle and its stunning beaches stretch as far as the eye can see. Alex continues to attract tourists from around the world.
Known for its rocky headland that produces some of the best surfing conditions from our Queensland beaches, Alex is also popular with swimmers who make the most of the patrolled beach in front of the Surf Life Saving Club.
Achieving the ideal balance of development of a seaside town and protecting the natural environment isn’t always easy. Yet this seaside development has cared for the shoreline leaving it relatively untouched so it can continue its fame for retaining a natural beauty.
Commonly known as part of The Golden Triangle, this precinct is well regarded for its solid land values and highly sought-after real estate.
While often a topic for discussion, a true local knows exactly where the boundaries are, defined by which streets and which sides of the street forms the triangle.
It’s clear why this area is so significant; the area offers nice views, a cooling breeze, elevated blocks, an easy walk to the beach and close proximity to Mooloolaba.
Alexandra Headland benefits from a blend of medium-rise buildings and high-end residential homes, integrating seamlessly with original beach houses all set within a stunning seascape.
Popular with tourists and local residents, this idyllic setting is also the perfect place to raise a family.
Investors appreciate land values and low rental vacancy rates.
Each and every morning and afternoon, you will see surfers eagerly checking out the swell, in the hope of the perfect point break that will bring the ideal wave to the shoreline.
Enjoy the walking path that stretches from Maroochydore to Mooloolaba along the foreshore of Alex. Not only is it beautiful in scenery, but there are plenty of friendly smiles to give a cheery ‘morning’ or ‘afternoon’ along the way.
There is an abundance of cafes, bars and local shops and restaurants stretching along the Esplanade.
With a picture-perfect beachfront and seaside vibe, who wouldn’t enjoy a seaside holiday along the front.
Or even better, be fortunate to call Alexandra Headland home and leisurely wander down to the surf and sand at sunrise or sunset.
