The Grand Palais Beachside resort is also perfectly located in the heart of the Sunshine Coast.
There is so much to see and do on the Sunshine Coast while enjoying your stay at our Alexandra Headland resort. Our friendly staff are happy to help organise all your Sunshine Coast tours and activities while you are here.
The gem of the Sunshine Coast
Alexandra Headland, known by the locals as ‘Alex’, is a coastal town situated on Queensland’s Sunshine Coast. The township has a relaxed and laid back atmosphere that complements the soothing rolling surf and inviting beaches.
Alexandra Headland is also ringed by Mooloolaba, Buderim and Maroochydore with a superb coastal sweep to the north and bush foothills to the west. Alexandra Headland’s main attraction is its magnificent coastal frontage of beach, headland and parks extending for kilometres north and south.
The swimming beach is patrolled by the Alexandra Headland Surf Club. On any day, visitors can enjoy watching the surfers, or better yet join them. There are many places to sign up for surf lessons and rent boards.
For the skaters and bikers, there is an outdoor skate park right alongside the beach. Also provided are picnic and barbecue facilities; so why not enjoy lunch on the barbie with family and friends. While Alexandra Headland has maintained its small town charm, it is only minutes from major Sunshine Coast shopping centres and attractions
Sunshine Coast, Queensland, Australia
Stretching from the coastal city of Caloundra, near Brisbane, to the Great Sandy National Park in the north, the Sunshine Coast is home to pretty villages, renowned surf spots and spectacular rural hinterland. Surrounded by beach, Noosa is a holiday hotspot near the centre of the Sunshine Coast, with many fashion boutiques and hip cafés dotted along Hastings Street.
Surfers and golfers will love the holiday town of Coolum, while lush Eumundi in the Noosa hinterland will satisfy market shoppers and art lovers with its famous Eumundi Markets.
Maroochydore is the cultural capital of the region, but is pleasingly far from being a bustling city. From the Sunshine Coast you can catch a car ferry from the village of Tewantin and explore the Noosa North Shore, the Great Sandy National Park and World Heritage-listed Fraser Island.
Grand Palais resort is the perfect base to start exploring the Sunshine Coast, due to its convenient, central location.
