Mellow is the only way of life on the magical Sunshine Coast, which is why many of the locals from Brisbane choose to holiday here. Experience a laid-back lifestyle centred around pristine beaches, freshwater rivers and lakes, subtropical forests and warm sunshine.
Whether you’re looking for a calm sheltered swimming inlet or some waves, there are plenty of long unbroken beaches to find a spot to lay the towel down and relax in the sun or take to the water. There are great picnic areas available, many with public BBQ’s beachside.
The Sunshine Coast is much more than just a beach holiday destination. The hinterland of the Sunshine Coast offers a different type of relaxation, from wandering through galleries and enjoying a coffee in a small mountain town to reconnecting with nature at Noosa National Park – just a short walk from Noosa’s busy shopping and dining precinct of Hastings Street.
To really stretch the legs, visit the Glass House Mountains National Park, consisting of 16 dramatic volcanic crags and countless picturesque lookouts.
Take a drive north to Hervey Bay for the world’s closest whale watching encounters or explore the World Heritage-listed Fraser Island – the largest sand island in the world. An unspoilt paradise, where tall rainforests are found and more than 100 freshwater lakes are scattered around the island, including the famous white sand and turquoise water of Lake McKenzie.
