Kings Beach, Sunshine Coast

 

Kings Beach is one of the major Sunshine Coast beaches, the beach is patrolled all year round and has a great picnic and children's play areas. Kings Beach is host to an environmentally friendly swimming pool which, whilst built to be separate from the ocean, is fed directly from seawater.  On a clear day looking East out to sea, you can see the sand hills on Moreton Island, about 20 km away. Kings Beach was named after the King family, the first residents in the area. After living at Moffat Head in James Moffat’s home for a while, they moved to the Kings Beach area in 1893.
