On the Sunshine Coast, the only thing more refreshing than the water is the lifestyle. With its endless beaches, lush rainforests and easy smiles, it’s a place where you will feel like a local from the moment you arrive.
Choose your patch of sand from over 100 kilometres of pristine coastline – stretching from Caloundra in the south to Noosa and the rainbow sands of the Cooloola Coast in the north – and soak up the warm sunshine and laid-back atmosphere.
From rolling surf to rolling hills, the Sunshine Coast Hinterland is full of natural beauty, cosy cafes and boutiques waiting to be discovered.
The Sunshine Beach to Noosa track through Noosa National Park is one of my favourites. It’s best to start early, wear your togs and pack a picnic. Then finish back in Sunshine Beach with a signature iced chocolate at restaurant Fratellini. Alana Ingold
