A guide to Minyama’s best outdoor activities


The Sunshine Coast is spoilt with beautiful suburbs just moments from even more beautiful beaches. One such suburb is Minyama, where our latest Mater Prize Home lottery No. 311 is located. A hidden gem you may not have heard of before, there is so much to love about this suburb that you’ll never want to move!

Surrounded almost entirely by water, Minyama is situated on the Mooloolah River and just minutes from the golden sand shores of Mooloolaba Beach. It’s a paradise for outdoor lovers, no matter how you like to work up a sweat or get your nature fix.

Here are just some of the best places to enjoy the outdoors near Minyama.

Alexandra Headland

For an early morning stroll: Mooloolaba’s Coastal Walk

One of the top ways to really appreciate this beautiful spot you could be lucky enough to call home with our Mater Prize Home is during a daily walk along the coastline. Paths and boardwalks pave the way up close to the water’s edge from Alex Corner in Alexandra Headland to the Mooloolaba Spit. This casual 40-minute walk or easy bike ride (the perfect place to take your two Kalkhoff eBikes for a spin) is a great way to start your mornings with some vitamin D and vitamin sea. If you’re starting at Alexandra Headlands and want to fuel up with caffeine before you get going, drop into The Booley cafe first.

Point Cartwright

For a surf: Point Cartwright 

Just five minutes from the prize home, you’ll find a handful of reasons to regularly visit Point Cartwright, such as to see the Lighthouse and whale mural-painted water tank, take a seaside stroll, let your four-legged family member off-leash for a beach run, have a picnic on the grassy headland, and to catch some waves. The surf conditions at Point Cartwright are great for those with a little experience under their belt. It’s a challenging right-hander spot where the surf conditions are almost always good and the water beautiful and clear. Plus, the view back to shore of the lighthouse and headland is pretty hard to beat!

Buderim Forest

For a tranquil nature walk: Buderim Forest Park

Trade those water views of the Mooloolah River off your patio for a day of lush greenery inside Buderim Forest Park. Take your time exploring the towering trees, rainforest, babbling creeks and rock pools, and waterfalls within its 45 acres. There’s a path at the upper entry point at the base of Quorn Clos that takes you on a scenic hike to the Buderim Falls. Also known at Serenity Falls, you’ll quickly realise why it’s been given its secondary name as you enjoy the view from the arch bridge that spans above the creek at the base of the falls. 


For a leisurely hit: Headland Golf Club

A mere six minute drive in your Lexus RX350h 2WD (included in the home lottery) and you’re at Headland Golf Club in Buderim. Currently undergoing a refresh, by the time you move in this historic Par 72 Championship golf course will be the perfect place to go for a challenging game set amongst stunning scenery. The club is even equipped with a cutting edge golf simulator so you can continue to perfect your golf game, rain, hail or shine. Reward yourself after a round with a meal at the club’s own Vista @Headland restaurant, which boasts views out over the golf course to the coastline, plus an ever-changing menu driven by seasonal produce.


For a deep-dive adventure: Ex-HMAS Brisbane

With all that water around you on a daily basis, it won’t be long before you feel the urge to get your scuba diving licence so you can see your new home from a different angle. Once you do, your first stop should be 15 metres below the sea’s surface to explore the Ex-HMAS Brisbane. Just 2.9 nautical miles off the Sunshine Coast and considered one of Australia’s best wreck sites, the decommissioned guided missile destroyer has been transformed into an artificial reef abundant with marine life. Expect to see turtles, rays, leopard sharks, big groupers, octopus and plenty more fish while you’re down there exploring the ship.
