Alexandra Headland

Alexandra Headland (or Alex Heads as the locals call it) is a seaside village with a lot of heart. With its glorious beachfront and small-town warmth, you’ll love holidaying here.

Every day, you’ll see surfers watching the ocean hoping for that magic point break where they can ride a perfect barrel. Head out the door of your apartment, luxe beach house or cabin and in just a few minutes you’re on the beach or walking on the many paths that weave around the coastline.

There is an ever-vigilant crew at the Alexandra Headland Surf Lifesaving Club that watches
over the main beach, so you’ll be safely swimming with your family or playing beach cricket or frisbee until the sun goes down. Teens will make a beeline for the Alex Skate Park and half-pipe, so they can hone their skills on the board or scooter.

The 7 Sunshine Coast Marathon and Community Running Festival is one of the most-loved running festivals in Australia. The event has been timed to make the most of the ideal Queensland winter running conditions. Blue skies, low humidity and mild temperatures combined with a flat course always enable fast times.
