Moffat Beach visitor guide

06 Dec 2017

With its vibrant little strip of alfresco cafes and restaurants full of chatty locals, classy accommodation and a famous surf break, Moffat Beach has its own unique character that sets it apart from other areas of Caloundra.


Protected from the winds by Moffat Headland, the beautiful swimming beach has a protected inlet however, caution is recommended as the area is not patrolled. You can watch surfers ride along the right-handed waves out at sea, while the kids munch hot chips in the oceanfront playground. Set off along the spectacular coastal walk that leads from Moffat Beach right around to Kings Beach and Bulcock Beach.

For things to see and do at Moffat Beach, just look to the coastline. If you’re a long board rider you might be lucky enough to get on its long right hand swell and catch it all the way in, or for the more experienced, you might go further out on the reefs. Non-surfers will find the walking tracks and coastal restaurants with their fresh seafood dishes impressive, and there are also some excellent fishing spots around Moffat Beach just waiting to be discovered. The kids will love the great playground facilities and the shallow waters of Tooway Lake.

Moffat Beach accommodation is characterised by private seaside dwellings and holiday homes within close walking distance of the surf, allowing you and your family to have a true beach holiday. There are also spacious family-sized holiday apartments with a grand view of Moffat’s coastline, which stretches northwards all the way to Point Cartwright.

The WindanSea Surf Club holds the annual Pa & Ma Bendall Memorial Surfing Contest every Easter. This event is one of the longest running contests in Australia with a total of $15,000 prize money.
