Coolum Beach is a beachside town on the Sunshine Coast in Queensland, Australia and is also the beach around which the town is based.HistoryThe name is derived from the local Undumbi word gulum or guloom, meaning "blunt" or "headless", referring to the shape of Mount Coolum, which has no peak.According to Aboriginal legend, Ninderry knocked off Coolum's head and it fell into the ocean and is now Mudjimba Island.The Coolum district was the traditional land of the Inabara or Yinneburra clan of the Undanbi Tribe. Get out of town with these interesting Coolum Beach side-trips: Maleny (Mary Cairncross Scenic Reserve & Maleny Botanic Gardens & Bird World), Kings Beach (in Caloundra) and Australia Zoo (in Beerwah). There's still lots to do: stroll through Mooloolaba Beach, cool off at Sea Life Sunshine Coast, step aboard HMAS Brisbane, and discover the deep blue sea with a scuba or snorkeling tour.
