Coolum Beach is a beachside town on the Sunshine Coast in Queensland, Australia and is also the beach around which the town is based. Coolum hosted the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting in 2002, replacing the 2001 meeting that was postponed and moved from Brisbane in the wake of the September 11 attacks.

The 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.

Mount Coolum dominates the landscape, and can be seen from most of Coolum. A half hour bush walk winds its way up Mount Coolum.

Coolum State High School is located in the town.
