Moffats Beach on the Sunshine Coast

by Sally Foster (follow)
Family friendly beach in Caloundra

This page may be dedicated to everything Brisbane, but I simply had to share one of my favourite day trips just an hour’s drive from Brisbane’s north. Moffat Beach at Caloundra is my favourite beach to visit with my toddler and the perfect place for some much needed family fun time.

Located in Caloundra, Moffats Beach is a small beach, with a nearby strip of alfresco cafes and restaurants, two excellent playgrounds and lots of green space on the waterfront for beach picnics and barbecues.

The beach itself has a protected inlet, but it is not patrolled. The reason that I like going there, is that it is normally a much quieter beach and my son is able to run in and out of the water in the shallow area without being clobbered by huge waves. It is also perfect for ‘bobbing’ in the deeper parts.

The nearby strip of restaurants and cafe has excellent options for all meals. My personal favourite place is Cafe by the Beach, which has the BEST pancakes you will ever have in your life. I mean this. Sometimes we drive to Moffat Beach just for the pancakes. They are two pancakes served with macadamias smothered in butterscotch sauce, whipped cream over vanilla ice cream. They also have tons of kid friendly options and the service is always warm and welcoming to little ones.



There are two playgrounds at Moffat Beach which are right on the waterfront. One is a pirate ship theme and has lots of climbing ropes and areas for imagination play. The other smaller playground is perfect for younger kids. You can bring along a picnic blanket and spend a morning lazing by the playground before retreating to the ocean to cool down. It really is the most idyllic spot.

If you are game and love spectacular ocean scenery, you can walk from Moffat Beach alongside the coastal walk to Kings Beach and Bulcock Beach, which are also fantastic family friendly beaches.

With social distancing in place and many of us quarantined in our homes this school holidays, we have to get really creative with what to get up to. Here is our guide to help you out. Featuring indoor and outdoor activities.
