“A fabulous short climb to some of the BEST views of the Sunshine Coast to be had! It's quite steep in places, but has steps & so.e railings. Be careful with young children of course. (I took my 2 nephews up at 3yo & 7yo for a picnic up top for my 60th, & they were like mountain goats.. we just had to pull them up a few times on the way back down!)”

“Located opposite the beach. Great Thai food reasonably priced. At peak times it's wise to book but you can usually get a seat. At slower times they seem keen to shut up shop quickly (definitely no table service after 9 pm) so don't leave it too late”
