Extending from the beach entrance 500m south of the Twin Waters patrolled area all the way to the Maroochy River, not only does it offer a vast expanse of fine white sand but standing sentry at the mouth of the river is the mysterious rocky outcrop Pincushion Island, which itself warrants a visit.*

In stark contrast to the built-up shores of Maroochydore on the other side of the river North Shore is something of an uninhabited wilderness, fringed by dunes and the sandy banks of the pristine river on one side and surf beach along the main stretch.

*Pincushion Island, a giant sandstone protuberance which is currently attached to the beach, has oddly spent much of its life as an island due to the ever-shifting mouth of the Maroochy River and is renowned for its spooky ability to change position. A fantastic exploratory spot for children, it’s climbable by a couple of paths, with a grass patch, banksia trees, ruins of stairs and viewing platform on top, vistas to be had in each direction and some fantastic rock pools to explore below.
