Fly Away - Any time:
Kooralbyn: Fly to Kooralbyn Resort, between Beaudesert and Boonah, and land on the resort's runway for breakfast.
The $22 all-you-can eat 3-course buffet breakfast is at Lilies Restaurant inside Kooralbyn Resort and is back to serve yourself now the buffet restrictions have been lifted. The usual Covid restrictions for this type of venue remain of course. The breakfast choice of hot dishes, fruit, cereal and pastries remains unchanged and is as good as it ever was or better.
Lilies Restaurant is an easy 5-minute walk from the runway.
For more basic and less expensive food and drink all day, every day, the Foodworks in the Kooralbyn Shopping Centre next to the runway has hot pies, coffee, cake and cold drinks.
A new coffee shop tenant has opened in the shopping centre after an 18-month vacancy since the previous tenant closed due to the 2020 COVID restrictions.
Caloundra: Fly into Caloundra Airport and see the Queensland Air Museum. Have breakfast at the nearby Hungry Jacks or a cooked breakfast at the Golden Beach Tavern(weekends only).
Take the bikeway/walkway into town and then pick up the boardwalk starting at Bulcock Beach for a walk right around the headland to King's Beach. Complete the circle by walking down the main street(Bulcock St) on your way out of town and back to the airport.
