The grassy areas of Glen Retreat Park are great for some soccer as well. It’s located near the sea, so it’s easy to plan a full day of outdoor fun with family and friends.
After the park, head over to Marcoola Beach for a refreshing dip in a quiet beach area. The open parkland has a children’s park and shady trees too. Various accommodation styles are available for rent here; it’s a terrific place to base yourself in as you explore the rest of Marcoola and the nearby attractions.
Marcoola Beach is patrolled too, but be sure to only swim in the areas close to lifeguards on duty. The beach has several surf breaks though better ones can be found at Point Arkwright; it’s not uncommon to see surfers here though it’s only recommended for experienced surfers. Beach fishing is another popular activity here.
Glen Retreat Park is located near Coolum, which is recommended for its numerous sights worth checking out. Nothing says you’ve been to Coolum than climbing Mount Coolum; this amazing feat is something you can brag about. After all, the mountain is 25 million years old and is the second biggest rock in the world (only behind the world-famous Uluru). Other notable attractions include Aqua Park Coolum, Coolum Surf School, and the skate park.
Glen Retreat Park and the many other parks, beaches, and mountains nearby make this destination deserve a portion of your Sunshine Coast itinerary.
