Sunshine Coast holidays give you the opportunity to experience days – or perhaps weeks – of total relaxation.
Visit coastal locations to immerse yourself in sunshine, salt water, and the laidback Queensland beach culture. Then travel west into the beautiful hinterland to bushwalk, wade in natural swimming holes, and spot native wildlife.
Travelling to Sunshine Coast towns, you’ll stumble across incredible cafes, markets, and lookouts. You’ll also meet a diversity of fascinating people. This South East Queensland region offers you the freedom to truly unwind – a couple of days here is all it takes to feel carefree and revitalised.
The Sunshine Coast offers myriad activities for the most active to the most relaxing of holidays. Explore beautiful beaches, walk to waterfalls, stop at scenic lookouts and picnic in lush rainforests in the hinterland, you could spend weeks exploring everything this region has to offer. For the less outdoorsy amongst us, there are plenty of hip boutiques in Noosa, emerging and established culinary institutions and an evolving artistic community to explore. You’re spoilt for choice with hundreds of aquatic experiences available at the beach and adventure activities in the Glass House Mountains.
The Sunshine Coast boasts a variety of culinary hot-spots, from coffee shops and bustling beachside bars to modern Australian fine-dining. Eat clean in Noosa with its abundance of health food stores, or indulge on buttery pastries and homemade spreads in the hinterland. The beauty of the coast is that no matter where you go, you’re bound to stumble upon award-winning restaurants and cafes with great service and picture-perfect views.
There are plenty of great spots to do your shopping on the Sunshine Coast, with shopping centres, markets, and boutique stores in abundance. Shopping on Sunshine Coast main streets like Mooloolaba’s Esplanade or Noosa’s Hastings Street, you’ll find much more than beachwear. From colourful, embellished boho pieces and art to souvenirs and eco-friendly recycled accessories, these coastal streets have it all.
Sunshine Coast sights are incredibly beautiful. Admire the birdlife, towering bunya pines, eucalyptus forests, and the greenery of Mapleton National Park. Make the most of the unique landscape by getting right in among it. There are many activities in hinterland areas that will get your blood pumping. Hiking, four-wheel driving, mountain-biking and abseiling are just a few of the options available to you.
Sunshine Coast beaches are among some of the most beautiful in the world. Be sure to spend time at a few to appreciate their unique qualities. Noosa Main Beach is lively, Coolum Beach quiet, Moffat Beach a favourite with surfers, cafe goers and dog walkers alike, and Noosa’s Little Cove shady and peaceful. All beaches in the area are perfect places to enjoy a hot bundle of fish and chips. Rip open the butchers’ paper, squeeze a bit of lemon over the top, and spend your afternoon spotting ships, whales, and dolphins.
