Sunshine Coast Arts and Crafts Drive

Multiple Locations

While most visitors instantly identify the Sunshine Coast with her bedazzling beaches, away from the surf and sand there's also a thriving artistic bent to this destination. And it starts at the Noosa Regional Gallery at Tewantin before winding to Queensland, and indeed Australia's biggest and best arts and crafts markets at Eumundi. From there, head to the Sunshine Coast Hinterland hills of Montville and then on to Buderim, to satisfy your creative urge.
