The Sunshine Coast is made up of more than 100km of sparkling coastline, dotted with stunning beaches, stylish villages such as Noosa, and bustling coastal towns like Maroochydore and Mooloolaba.
Less than half an hour inland, the Sunshine Coast Hinterland is famous for its fresh produce and gourmet dining. The region is only 90 minutes north of Brisbane, but in this laid-back holiday favourite you’ll feel like you’ve escaped to another world.
Things to do on the Sunshine Coast
Laze on the beaches, hike through the hinterland or meet some fascinating local characters at the markets – there’s something for everyone on the Sunshine Coast
Find your beach
With a coastline that stretches from Caloundra to Great Sandy National Park, you’re going to find some spectacular beaches
on the Sunshine Coast. The calm waters of Caloundra are great for families, hit the surf at Noosa, or get your four-wheels sandy on Rainbow Beach.
Get off the grid
A 60km network of rivers and lakes is hidden half an hour north of Noosa, one of only two everglades
systems on Earth. It’s a place for boating, hiking, camping or just getting to enjoy the peace and quiet.
Head to the hinterland
It’s not all about the beaches on the Sunshine Coast. The Hinterland
is home to Kondalilla, Mapleton Falls and Conondale national parks, the striking Glass House Mountains, cosy villages and some seriously innovative farm-to-table food.
Browse the markets
Pick up some fresh produce, watch local entertainers or grab unique souvenirs at one of the Sunshine Coast’s many markets. Don’t miss the famous Eumundi Markets – held every Wednesday and Saturday – for excellent artisan products.
