George Watson Bushland Park

George Watson Bushland Park in Shelly Beach is a lush tree and bushland area that provides breathtaking ocean views.

Though an underrated destination on the Sunshine Coast, if you are in the area, this spot is worth visiting for its spectacular views and tranquil ambience.

George Watson Bushland Park, Walking Tracks, Trees, Shelly Beach QLD

The best aspect of visiting the park is how quiet it is. There are rarely ever too many visitors, so it’s the perfect place to spend some time exploring the many walking tracks and the many trees in the area. Listen to the waves crashing, and bring along your camera for some nice photo ops. Better yet, why not grab some fish and chips as you enjoy your arvo here. If you get lucky, you could even spot some whales!

After some time at the George Watson Bushland Park, explore what the rest of Shelly Beach has to offer. It’s one of the best areas of the Sunshine Coast, unbeknownst to many travellers. It’s home to a beautiful stretch of beach, though unpatrolled. The beach isn’t suitable for swimming, so there are never any crowds, assuring you hours of views and white sands all to yourself. Shelly Beach has some shallow rock pools rich in marine life, too, something the kids will love. Look out for sea cucumbers, barnacles, and blue periwinkles.

Moffat Beach is nearby and worth spending time in too. This charming seaside spot has several cafes and restaurants; it fills up with locals who come for the fantastic food with a view. Burn off your meal by taking a scenic walk from Moffat Beach through Kings Beach then Bulcock Beach.

The George Watson Bushland Park and the surrounding attractions in Shelly Beach should be on the top of your itinerary.
