Permanent vacation


The best thing about living on the Sunshine Coast during Covid restrictio­ns is that I feel like I’m on vacation all the time. On my doorstep are spectacula­r unpopulate­d beaches, like First Bay, down from Point Perry lookout. It’s a local secret of breathtaki­ng beauty and colour. Red rocks meet pearl-white sand, touched by turquoise surf and surrounded by pandanus and green cliffs – nature painting a vista. Only a short stroll and you find cafes, boutiques, surf club, bowls, pubs and restaurant­s. And it’s only 22 minutes to Noosaville’s Gympie Terrace and the Noosa River, or 28 minutes to famous Hastings Street and the Noosa National Park. Staycation­ing at its best for locals and a trip worth taking for everyone else. Donna Munro
