Stun­ning coast views and quiet val­leys

Sold On Sunshine Coast - - Suburb Profile | Aroona -

THE el­e­vated, yet af­ford­able sub­urb of Aroona is named af­ter the abo­rig­i­nal word mean­ing ‘place of run­ning wa­ters’.

Nes­tled be­tween Caloun­dra and Lit­tle Moun­tain, Aroona is lo­cated within the Caloun­dra ur­ban cen­tre.

Sit­u­ated be­tween the high­way and the beach on Caloun­dra’s north­ern edge, the area has tran­si­tioned from a mere two houses per street in the 1970s, to a vi­tal cross-sec­tion of hous­ing styles cov­er­ing the whole spec­trum.

With the priv­i­lege of be­ing el­e­vated, Aroona of­fers a ridge­line of stun­ning coastal views from Mooloolaba to the north and Caloun­dra to the south-east, and is home to quiet val­leys that form the base­line of the com­mu­nity.

Real es­tate in this sub­urb varies from the mid­dle-of-the-range homes dat­ing back to the late 1970s, to the mod­ern res­i­dences that are fast be­com­ing a key ingredient to the Coast’s growth.

Ideal for the new home owner or in­vestor, the de­signs beam with po­ten­tial as there is the op­tion to add or ex­tend, or even put in a pool for cool re­lief on those sum­mer days.

This sub­urb is pop­u­lar with first home buy­ers as well as long-term res­i­dents and ap­peals to a range of dif­fer­ent de­mo­graph­ics.

Aroona’s Cen­tral Park of­fers a haven for recre­ation. There is a bas­ket­ball half court and space for park cricket as well as a chil­dren’s play­ground. The nat­u­ral sur­rounds make it ideal for fam­ily pic­nics and par­ties or sim­ply to sit in the shade and re­flect on life.

You will also find the nat­u­ral bush­land of Ben Ben­nett Park with its walk­ing and moun­tain bike trails.

The path is eas­ily fol­lowed as it guides vis­i­tors through the veg­e­ta­tion of melaleuca and eu­ca­lypt forests.

It’s such a lovely place to re­lax and ex­pe­ri­ence one of the few ar­eas of coastal low­land vine for­est. With free en­try from sun­rise to sun­set, this is a fam­ily friendly park worth a visit, es­pe­cially on a quiet Sun­day af­ter­noon.

En­com­pass­ing 1.9sq km of the Sun­shine Coast, Aroona is lo­cated in the ideal sit­u­a­tion where you can have it all, with­out the busy traf­fic and crowds.

Lo­cated west of Nick­lin Way, Aroona of­fers easy ac­cess to Dicky Beach’s surf, sand and shops.

With easy ac­cess to the Bruce High­way, this cen­tral lo­ca­tion is one not to miss.

There is a lo­cal neigh­bour­hood shop­ping cen­tre and ma­jor ser­vice sta­tion yet it is also favoured for its close prox­im­ity to Caloun­dra CBD and sports fa­cil­i­ties, in­clud­ing Caloun­dra Golf Club and the Arthur St sports grounds, aquatic cen­tre and YMCA. Aroona is con­ve­nient to a va­ri­ety of schools in­clud­ing Cur­rimundi Pri­mary School, Talara Pri­mary Col­lege, Pa­cific Lutheran Col­lege and Caloun­dra State High School while the Cur­rimundi Mar­ket­place and Park­lands Shop­ping Cen­tre are very handy.
