Food and Wine

The Sunshine Coast has become one of Queensland's premier foodie destinations; a visit to a local food festival, country market or one of the many award-winning restaurants will show you why. There's also cooking classes, boutique wineries, cheese producers and more. Prepare your tastebuds for a holiday from the everyday.
  • Stop at the Eumundi Markets any Wednesday or Saturday to sample local foods and artisan fare.
  • Savour the local produce served up at local cafes and restaurants throughout Noosa, Mooloolaba and the Hinterland towns of Montville and Maleny. Some of these establishments are highly awarded and have a national profile including their own series of cookbooks.
  • Bring home a new skill from your holiday after attending one of the many cooking schools.
Whatever makes your mouth water, you’ll find it on the Sunshine Coast.
