The Sunshine Coast is one of Queensland’s most popular holiday destinations, and it’s no wonder why! With the region’s white sandy beaches, tropical greenery, crystal clear lakes and an abundance of outdoor activities, the Sunshine Coast is a sun lover’s paradise.
Whether you want to lounge about on a secluded beach or you’d prefer to keep active with a hike, the Sunshine Coast offers a diversity of activities to suit all desires and mindsets! The Sunshine Coast region encompasses Noosa, Coolum, Maroochydore, Mooloolaba, Caloundra and the hinterland regions.
The Sunshine Coast is both a couples retreat and a family destination. You will be met with plenty of things to do including whale watching, surfing, paddle boarding and shopping! Queensland has some of the most beautiful beaches in the world and majority can be found along the Sunshine Coast. Mooloolaba (Hyams) Beach is great for young families as it is deemed one of the safest swimming beaches in the region and has plentiful picnic areas, playgrounds, shops and cafes nearby.
A visit to Noosa is also a must for those passing through the Sunshine Coast. In the heart of Noosa is Hastings Street - a vibrant and stylish strip of cafes, restaurants, hotels and boutique shops. Order a coffee at a trendy café and watch the people walk by or sip a refreshing drink on the balcony of Noosa Surf Club overlooking the famous Noosa Beach.
For those who love shopping, a visit to the Eumundi Markets is a must. Held every Wednesday and Saturday, the Eumundi Markets is one of Noosa’s best kept shopping secrets. Once you have emptied your pocket on things well spent, travel the coastline by horseback or explore every nook and cranny of the Noosa National Park.
Australia Zoo is most well-known for being associated with the Irwin Family, and is the home to thousands of native and exotic species. Come learn and experience wildlife at its best – this is truly the best zoo in Australia.
