Timber viewing deck at Marcoola beach looks out over the ocean

If you like to unwind by watching the ocean, or want to check out the surf before grabbing your board, there’s a new prime beachfront spot in Marcoola for you to pull up a seat.

Sunshine Coast Council has built a new timber viewing deck at Beach Access 104, near Marcoola Surf Life Saving Club, and it’s already a hit with locals and visitors.

Director Infrastructure Services Andrew Ryan said council had also upgraded the beach access.

“As well as building the new viewing platform, we have added concrete paths and a timber pathway onto the sand to improve the look of the area and make it easier for people to access the beach,” Mr Ryan said.

“The beach entrance is made even more welcoming by new native plants.

“This upgrade is just one of many recreational projects council has delivered as part of its $183 million Capital Works Program.

“It’s also an example of how council is providing new types of attractive and practical recreational facilities in our region – we have included bar stool-style seating here at Marcoola and in other locations, and timber day beds at Alexandra Headland.”
