Day Trip - Moffat Beach Australia

Oh Hey There!

The time has rolled around once again where I have my winter school holidays & what a better way then spending it with my amazing friends! On Thursday this week 8 of us headed down to Moffat Beach on the Sunshine Coast of QLD for a coffee & catch up.

Being locals we know where to get the best coffee along the cafĂ© & shop strip. My friends & family currently can’t decide whether it’s Blackwater Trading co. (1) or Sunny’s at Moffat’s (2). We decided on this particular day we’d hit up Blackwater Trading co. I ordered my usual ‘a cup of skinny flat white, no sugar’. My ‘cup’ was just the perfect size I would have been bouncing off the walls if I’d ordered the mug - I decided after seeing my friend’s drinks. The table service is always great! We had a lovely lady who could pull off a really cute purple pixie hair cut. Also the fresh cut flowers were a lovely.

My beautiful Coffee.

Afterwards we grabbed some chips & calamari from The Fish Bowl (3). To tell you the truth the only people who would ever buy fish & chips from there are tourists and teenagers- the locals don’t eat there, if you click the link you'll understand why. My friends & myself being teenagers will eat their cause it’s cheap + we’ll eat anything covered in gravy. We take the soggy chips & calamari down to the beach & eat either sitting on the rock retaining wall or at a free seagull poo covered bench – In the latter case I usually opt for the clean green grassy ground.

After eating our body weight in deep fried food & gravy we walked along the rock pools (4 - along the beach about 100m) near the headland. You can see the surfers in the water & the little creatures scuttling in the pools. After one to many wet items of clothing from rough waves or misplaced footing, returning to the beach with a sore ass is probably the safest and less painful option. 

After 30 minutes of trying to teach my how to blow a chewing gum bubble my friends gave up & just as they started to walk away... then I did it! Yay!

I can now inform you I am proficient in the art of splattering gum all over ones face.

I hope you enjoyed getting an insight into my local area & day, if you would like to read maybe something similar about other day trips or places on the Sunshine coast let me know in the comments.

  1. I would love to hear about more day trips of yours, as well as some photos too. Being from the UK, Australia is a far flung place for me, one I hope to visit some day, but will explore through the lives of others for the time being. Thanks for sharing your day!
