The Sunshine Coast encompasses beach resorts, surf spots and rural hinterland in southern Queensland, Australia. It stretches from the coastal city of Caloundra, near Brisbane, north to the Cooloola section of the Great Sandy National Park, home to multicoloured sand dunes, mangrove forests, and shallow lakes. Upscale Noosa Heads has boutique shops, waterways, and walking trails through Noosa National Park.
Other popular seaside resorts include Maroochydore, a gateway to the region, and Coolum Beach, with nearby Mount Coolum, an ancient volcanic dome. Mooloolaba is known for its prawns and Underwater World, an oceanarium with seals, sharks, and other marine creatures. The Australia Zoo, in Beerwah, is owned by the family of the late Steve Irwin, from the TV wildlife series 'The Crocodile Hunter'. Nearby, the conical Glass House Mountains were formed by volcanic eruptions over 20 million years ago. Also inland are mountain townships like Montville, with craft shops, and Eumundi, with an artisan and farmers market.
Beaches, hiking, surfing fresh local food and world-class events, the Sunshine Coast has it all! The only thing more refreshing than the water is the lifestyle. With its sunshine, endless coastline, lush rainforests and easy smiles - it’s a place where you’ll feel like a local from the moment you arrive.
There’ll never be a shortage of things to see and do on your Sunshine Coast visit. With glorious sunny days and warm water most of the year, it’s an ideal place for outdoor sports and recreation, alfresco dining, hiking, swimming, surfing, snorkelling, scuba diving, cycling, golfing and shopping.
