Disconnect from the rush of everyday life and soak up kilometres of family-friendly beaches from Caloundra to Kawana on the southern end of the Sunshine Coast.
Whatever your family's interest, you're guaranteed to find something epic to do. Let the kids loose in the fountain play-area at Kings Beach and watch a surf carnival at Dicky Beach. Stroll or cycle the Caloundra Coastal walk, stretching from Golden Beach to Currimundi Lake, stopping off at waterfront cafes along the way. Make a day of it at Australia Zoo, Aussie World or the Big Kart Track.
Step aside, gymnasiums. Mother Nature's calling with plenty of natural assets that encourage heart-pumping, sweat-dripping antics and will leave you throwing active anecdotes around like glitter. Catch a wave at Moffat Beach or play a round at the Greg Norman-designed golf course at Pelican Waters. Cruise the Pumicestone Passage in the shadow of the Glass House Mountains, home to more than 300 species of birds. Hit the surf at Kawana or pack a picnic and watch the yachts sail in at Point Cartwright.
