Noosa Southern Beaches

Between Noosa Heads and Coolum Beach there is a string of beach suburbs; Sunshine Beach (separate entry), Sunrise Beach, Castaways Beach, Marcus Beach and Peregian Beach (separate entry).

T.M. Burke Pty Ltd, real estate developer, began its involvement in the Noosa coastline in 1927. The company built the Weyba Bridge, Noosaville, which provides motor-vehicle access to Sunshine Beach. Land sales at Sunshine Beach were terminated by World War II.
