Top of the To Do List at Horizons Peregian

When you visit Peregian Beach make sure you see and do our very own Top 5:  Firstly  The Beach – Our direct beach access takes you to a pristine section of the Pacific coastline that stretches from Sunshine Beach to Coolum. It is popular with surfers, fisherman and anyone after a quiet holiday away from the hustle and bustle.   The Noosa Environmental Park is adjacent to us, its walking trails follow spectacular coastal scenery and you may spot some our native wildlife.  Peregian Village, known as the “seaside village of Noosa” – you can visit our unique cafes and restaurants, shops, hotel and Surf Club.  

The Peregian Beach Markets and the open air music of Peregian Originals are the first and third Sunday of the month with original live music to bring the Sunshine Coast community together. Well known for the variety of arts and crafts on offer and for the fabulous fresh produce, it is easy to spend the morning browsing the market stalls and soaking up the atmosphere!  Shop on Hastings Street  – Regarded as the style hub of Noosa, this bustling beach side strip is home to an exciting range of fashion labels, unique jewellery, home wares, art and beauty products. Find out why foodies love Noosa and sample the many cafes and restaurants.

If that is not enough, we are centrally located, close to Australia Zoo, Aussie World, Eumundi Markets, Fraser Island, Ginger Factory, UnderWater World, Noosa Everglades and the hinterland towns of Montville and Maleny.   Plus from August to November, you can experience a whale watching tour or see them from our penthouse apartments! Visit our Facebook page or website to find out more – we’ll be happy to book you into a tour.   Don’t forget that Peregian’s most popular pet friendly beach is located directly opposite our resort and there is a 4 km dog exercise area between here and Coolum. Please note that the pet friendly rooms available are restricted to one dog up to 10kgs.

Get connected in Peregian!

One of the great things about living somewhere like Peregian Beach is the strong community feeling – wide smiles flow freely, coffee catch-ups and conversation buzz all about the village square and creative energies intersect frequently, making the air hum with happy vibes.

Browsing the eclectic shops, grabbing a bite for lunch or dining out for an evening meal, you’ll be greeted by cheery locals, always ready to connect and make you feel welcome.

Speaking of connectivity, here’s a new fact that’s good to know when you next visit. Thanks to some very forward-thinking Peregian Beach locals, the village square now provides free wifi!

No hourly login cost, no cumbersome conditions – just generous wireless access when you base yourself in the village.

Peregianality

When you finally understand what makes a place tick, what makes it special and what makes you want more of it, it’s hard to comprehend what took you so long. This is how I’ve been feeling about Peregian Beach lately.

So many visitors miss out on discovering its beach village charms because they head straight into Noosa, never having heard of this place that they find hard to say and even harder to spell. And equally, too many locals miss out because it seems ‘too far’ from the hub of things. I was one of those deluded locals until I started working with Rod here at Horizons, driving the short distance south from my home at Sunshine Beach a few times a week.

Now its energy, its Peregianality I like to call it, is under my skin.

Truth is, Peregian Beach is only about 20 minutes drive from Hastings Street, hugging a stunning coastal road that eases your mind as you wind through the small adjoining communities of Sunshine, Sunrise and Marcus Beaches. Slowing to 40kms per hour as you hit the village itself also reminds you that you’re now entering a calmer pace of life.

Peregian OriginalsFor a small community, Peregian (which is said to be an indigenous word meaning ‘emu’ or ‘mangrove seeds’) has a lot on offer to keep its followers entertained, energised and well-fed. Within the village square itself, surely no larger than 50m by 50m and with a grass-edged play-platform for kids at its heart, are a mix of shops, cafes, restaurants and services that seem designed to offer everything so you never need to go anywhere else. In the square you’ll find fresh baked authentic German breads, coffee virtually on each of the four sides, easy take-aways for a quick feed or elegant sit-down dinner options, peaceful beneath trees. Boutique browsing is never better with mouth-watering fabrics and homewares, exotic furnishings, nifty nik-naks and clothes shops that rack everything from edgy designer to bright hippy clothes and maternity couture to groovy glad-rags for juniors.

A two second stroll across from the square to the new part of Peregian, a retail and hospitality development unveiled in 2011, and there’s more. More authentic European fare for starters with the best croissants I’ve inhaled outside France, outrageously healthy options, pizzas and pasta and red wine… it goes on.

You can tell, as you complete a lap of the small settlement and scour its stores, that it’s a fit, aware, creative bunch that Peregian magnetises – surfboards for sale, organic goods, rows of books on shelves, tea houses, massage heaven tucked into quiet side-lanes. My favourite store name, even though I’m not a mum myself, is a place for ‘mum.baby.home’ and it’s called Evolve – very Peregian.

The soundtrack to all this goodness is the sound of crashing waves, caught on the ocean breeze and wafted to you through the minty needles of the shore-lined pine trees. You can see and hear and feel all this from your croissant and café au lait, so it’s not far to travel when you’re ready to have your toes in the sand and the salt-air in your hair.

En route to the dunes is a fantastic skate park for speedy teens, a gloriously gritty surf club with great pub grub and a park expanse that everyday draws little tackers to a sturdy playscape to climb and slide and swing and squeal and smile.

And on the first and third Sunday of each month is the day that draws locals in droves and takes visitors by surprise. From the crack of dawn until one o’clock the beach park is packed with the colourful and crafty stallholders of the local markets (thirsty work so be sure to try one of the fresh homemade lemonades – no fancy bubbles, just pure, real, sweet citrus juice). Then, from one until five-ish, it’s on – what has really made Peregian’s name. The Peregian Originals – an afternoon of live music, strictly no covers allowed. Just self-penned tunes, happy faces, dancing feet, the smell of a sausage sizzle and the exaltation of a community creating beautiful music, in all senses of the expression.

And I think this is what I’ve found is the strong booming heart-tick of Peregian – a community creating beautiful music together; lyrical, melodic, harmonious. Peregianality – it’s a tune that stays in your mind, that you find yourself unconsciously singing along to and that becomes so addictive you could listen to it over and over and over again.

To tune in to the music yourself, come and visit us at Horizons soon!

Sunshine Coast Whale Research Project

Whale Ho! Seismic Airguns and Whale Behaviour.

This month Horizon’s at Peregian once again makes a splash by playing host to a collaboration of great minds investigating the effects of seismic air guns on the behaviour of humpback whales during their migratory path. A record 80 marine biology students from all parts of the world together with the scientific team are headquartered here at Peregian Beach for this two-month project. This project is known by the acronym BRAHSS (Behavioral response of Australian Humpback whales to seismic surveys) and is led by the University of Queensland. The Participating Institutions include the Universities of Queensland, Sydney, Newcastle and the Curtin University of Technology in addition to the Australian Antarctic Division and the Australian Defense Science and Technology Organisation (DSTO). This is a four year project and follows on from several smaller studies previously conducted by the university studying the effects of sound on humpback behaviour. The study will be one of the largest and most comprehensive studies on the effects of noise on whales ever undertaken. Guests of Horizons during the project period would have the unique opportunity of being invited to the research centre where they will be able to listen to the whales as they communicate. Stay tuned for further updates regarding this exciting project.
