A stroll from Cotton Tree to Alexandra Headland and on to Mooloolaba along the coastal pathway takes in glorious, sweeping ocean views and idyllic spots to picnic and breathe in the fresh ocean air.  

On the weekends, Cotton Tree comes alive with Sunday markets and a thriving al fresco cafe scene.  Browse through the stalls and sample some of the fresh local produce on offer.  For funky fashion boutiques or stylish homewares head to trendy Duporth Avenue and shop till you drop!

Soaking up the tranquil river views over a long lazy lunch in one of the many find riverfront restaurants completes a perfect day at beautiful Cotton Tree.

Centrally located in the heart of the Sunshine Coast, Cotton Tree is also convenient to all that Mooloolaba, Noosa, Caloundra and the Hinterland villages of Montville and Maleny have to offer.
