That included a gold in the 45-49 Beach Flags event, silver in the 40-45 surf board event and silver in the surf event.
“It was a pretty good day, down there, it is always a fun event,” Davis said.
Davis beat Coolum Beach's Cathy Gabel and Mooloolaba's Amanda Noble to win the flags event.
Gabel, Noble and Noosa Heads' Alison Fisk finished ahead of her in the beach sprint.
Then Fisk won the surf board for Noosa Heads, with Davis registering second. The Moore Park veteran also picked up a silver in the surf race going down to Alexander Headlands.
Davis teamed with Moore Park Beach club-mate Joanna Tolvanen to finish fifth in the double-ski event for women over the age of 40.

Tolvanen backed up with a fourth-place in the beach sprint, with Minter and Veurman-Betts taking out first and second and Liesl Kett, also from Mooloolaba finishing third.
She also came second in the surf board event, behind Paula Savage from Coolum Beach and ahead of Olivia Bredhauer from Alexandra Headland.
In the surf race, Tolvanen came fourth behind Savage (first), Bredhauer (second) and Veurman-Betts (third).
