Tucked between Maroochydore and Noosa, you can’t miss our legendary landmark, Mount Coolum - the one with the flat top.

Fun, food, wicked waves and awesome people. What more could you actually ask for?
Coolum’s name is believed to have derived from the Aboriginal word “gulum” or “kulum” meaning “blunt”. It is assumed this is in reference to Mount Coolum’s flat top and lack of a peak.
