A short stroll north from the main beach leads to the Stumers Creek end of Coolum Beach. This is a dog walking area with most pooches off-leash.
The creek itself is great for canoeing and exploring. The unique colouring of the creek is due to the pre-ice age coffee rock and tannins from the trees.
This area is a popular choice for many of the Sunshine Coast’s kite surfers and is a landing zone for parachutists. The annual Coolum Kite Festival is also held here during spring each year.
