For those looking to expand their Sunshine Coast horizons, take a 15 minute drive down the scenic coast road to Peregian Beach is well worth getting out of Noosa for. Situated on the open beach, Peregian is a delightful day (or even just a morning) trip for those interested in gorgeous boutique shops and gourmet food options centrally located around a village square.
For the discerning shopper, spend a few hours wandering through a number of homewares and interior design boutiques, from high-end galleries showcasing local artists to curated collections of coastal chic like Otilly & Lewis or Finders Keepers. Pick up classic linen at Carmel’s Designs, beautiful beachy threads at Luxe Tropic, or channel your inner boho at Bohemian Sundays. If you’ve left a furbaby at home, Peticular is a gorgeous boutique showcasing everything and anything your pet might need.
With a skate park backing onto the beach and a delightful playground guaranteed to wear down the boundless energy of children, Peregian Beach Village is also as child friendly as it gets. Evolve Mum Baby Home has beautiful homewares for little ones and mums, whilst the open square featured in the middle of the Village allows for coffee and playtime.
Browsing the arcades and shops of Peregian Beach Village will work up an appetite and on this score, the options are endless. For a mid morning recharge, tucked away is Le Bon Delice, a French Patisserie serving up delicious pastries and delicate Parisian treats, while Skal Coffee caters for those of the smoothie-bowl-grain-free-dairy-free-whole-foods crowd. Baked Poetry Café is a local favourite featuring light German fare, head to Raw Energy for a substantial and healthy meal while Sushi Wave is an excellent option for a Japanese lunch. Pitchfork is the stand out for high end food and a wonderful wine list with the added bonus of looking over the village square, perfect for little legs to stretch and play, while the more casual Peregian Beach Hotel has a great people watching platform and a surprisingly good menu for lunch and dinner with your pub tipple.
