What to do
Head down the coast road from Sunshine Beach, through Sunrise, dog-friendly Castaways and Marcus beaches to the seaside village of Peregian Beach. Nature surrounds with National Park walks and the serene Lake Weyba at Peregian’s doorstep.
Locals and visitors love the laidback and chilled beachy vibe, and Peregian has a great choice of holiday resorts and houses. Check-in and leave the car behind as you can walk to Peregian Village Square with its friendly restaurants, cafes and takeaways set under cool shady trees.
Lake Weyba, on the other side of Noosa National Park behind Peregian, is a serene spot to watch the day begin or get active with horse riding, kite-boarding, fishing, canoeing and birdwatching.
Nearby Emu Mountain (Peregian means emu in the indigenous Kabi Kabi language) is a fairly easy climb with mesmerising coastal and hinterland views. Walk or ride a bike for miles along the golden sand or coastal path.
There's a great skate park and children’s playground right along the beachfront.
Drop in at hip cafes and coffee haunts, yummy bakeries and colourful family-friendly eateries, all serving the fresh local produce, seafood or global tastes.
On the first and third Sunday morning of each month, the open-air Peregian Beach Markets have a great range of local arts, fashion and food.
The much-loved Peregian Originals free live music events are held on the second Sunday of every month in the park right beside the beach.
Do a lap of Peregian Square, right in the centre of the village, hopping from unique clothing boutiques to surf shops, barbers, homewares, design and furniture stores, massage rooms and day spas.
