Not that you probably need any more motivation to get up early for a surf session before work, but it’s hard to pass up Mudjimba Beach at sunrise.

For a family-friendly day out that also allows you some solo surfing time, you will have no trouble keeping the kids entertained at Coolum. The beach is wide and flat for throwing around a ball or building sandcastles, while the waves near the small headland are perfect for learning how to surf.
