Sunshine Coast

Sunshine Coast - Queensland

The Sunshine Coast is just that, one endless succession of beach after beautiful beach, although upon exploring this enchanting region you will discover that it is about more than sublime coast. Jump in the car and discover the rise and fall of countryside leading the way to mountainous hinterland sprinkled with traditional villages overflowing with charm and character.

Only an hours drive north of Brisbane the popular holiday destination of the Sunshine Coast begins with the main beach area of Caloundra where you will sink into the golden sands and start to feel reconnected immediately. The most difficult decision to make will be what to do next, surfing in the unspoilt waters of a great beach or fishing at Pumicestone Passage.

Heading north is a succession of holiday spots from peaceful locations to bustling resort towns where the main centres are Mooloolaba, Maroochydore, Coolum and Noosa Heads. Chill out in a beachside cafe, take your time over a long lunch or indulge in the gourmet delights prepared by accomplished chefs.

Prepare yourself for a dramatic launch into the Sunshine Coast with the remarkable formation of the Glass House Mountains as you delve into the picturesque towns of Maleny, Montville and Mapleton. Explore hinterland art galleries, refresh with organic produce at farmers markets, visit pineapple plantations, sugar and ginger crops, take a wild 4wd adventure on an untamed beach or simply lie back and recharge.
