The area to the west of Noosa Junction is known by locals as the "Cooloola Estate", it was subdivided as residential home sites in the early 1970's.

The coastal strip of pristine open beaches running south of Sunshine Beach to Peregian Beach is becoming a popular hideaway for holidaymakers and investors.

The beach itself is magnificent, with pristine surf offset by a wide expanse of clean yellow sand. It has a range of property from inexpensive townhouses through to prestige homes in diversified settings from beachfront to bush.
Many years ago, Sunshine Beach was a sleepy outpost of Noosa with fibro shacks, fishermen and surfers. It always had a following, particularly with the Brisbane professional and business set for a cheap weekender.
