Sunshine Coast | Things To Do

Laid-back and lovely, the Sunshine Coast brings together a picture-perfect string of beaches and a lush green hinterland. Meet local producers and learn the true meaning of paddock to plate with a farm tour, immerse yourself in the great outdoors, or join the passionate local athletes and first-timers in a triathlon, marathon or cycle.

Beaches

Discover surf spots like Double Island Point and Rainbow Beach, pick up some skills at a surf school and see the pros in action at the Noosa Festival of Surfing. Luxury lovers can head for the stylish enclave of Noosa, while families will love the beaches of Caloundra, Mooloolaba and Cotton Tree.

Hinterland and outdoors

Walk through the stunning Noosa National Park and kayak the gentle waterways of the Noosa Everglades. In the Hinterland, hike the jaw-dropping Glass House Mountains, discover sun-dappled waterfalls and look for the most-photographed paddock on the Sunshine Coast, One Tree Hill in Maleny.

Food and fresh produce

Eat your way around one of Queensland’s great foodie destinations. Start with the Noosa Food and Wine Festival in autumn, then follow the Sunshine Coast Food Trail to taste everything from cheese to boutique beer. Dine at award-winning restaurants where super-fresh local produce is the star.

Family activities

Cuddle a koala at Australia Zoo, ride the Red Back at Aussie World, become a seal trainer for a day at Sea Life Sunshine Coast, race at the Big Kart Track and pick your own berries at Strawberry Fields.
