The Sunshine Coast is experiencing an influx of visitors. Here’s a guide to the most popular places and regions they’re dying to see.
Every year hundreds of species of birds travel to Queensland’s Sunshine Coast for its warmth, sunshine, natural beauty and plentiful food.
There are so many regions tucked away along the beautiful Sunshine Coast, here’s a guide to the best of the best.
Caloundra to Kawana
The Pumicestone Passage is a stunning body of water just waiting for you to take a dip in it. Home to a vast array of marine life, where dugongs and dolphins swim beneath kayakers and paddle boarders. It’s also one of the best places for visitors to enjoy the water — whether it’s fishing, rowing, sailing or swimming. Away from the ocean in Caloundra, you’ll find family friendly parks, great shopping centres and a range of night spots for those who want to play after dark.
Mooloolaba to Marcoola
Dive into the deep blue ocean to explore the sunken wreck of HMAS Brisbane. Feast on fresh Mooloolaba prawns on a picnic blanket by the shore at dusk, explore the restaurants and funky cafés along the Esplanade, or take the
kids on a marine adventure at SEA LIFE Mooloolaba. There are endless outdoor activities and entertainment on offer. Find the perfect place to go for a morning bike ride or catch a fish for dinner. Head to the skate park at Alexandra Headland or enjoy a game of family frisbee on the white sands of Maroochydore Beach!
Noosa to Coolum
It doesn’t get more ‘naturally refreshing’ than the Noosa Biosphere. Explore the pristine walking trails of Noosa National Park, let the salt water cool your skin at Sunshine Beach and discover the hidden treasure that is Peregian Beach. You can also get a natural high at Mount Coolum, a grand volcanic dome that presides over the beautiful coastal landscape, is a favourite to climb and take in the spectacular views. With its mixture of paved path and rocky stairs, it’s the perfect way to feel on top of the world! A little further inland you’ll find the town of Eumundi. Every Wednesday and Saturday morning the town comes alive for the famous Eumundi Markets, where you can buy everything from vintage dresses to Thai street food.
