The Sunshine Coast begins at the Glass House Mountains, just one hour’s drive north of Brisbane, and extends north to Rainbow Beach, the gateway to Fraser Island. It takes in tranquil hinterland, including the towns of Maleny and Montville, the Noosa Hinterland and Mary Valley; as well as more than 100 kilometres of stunning beaches stretching through the coastal towns of Caloundra, Mooloolaba, Alexandra Headland, Cotton Tree, Maroochydore, Coolum Beach, Noosa and Rainbow Beach. Rivers, sheltered bays and surf beaches provide a scenic backdrop for any of your favourite water activities
You can keep the kids happy fishing, visiting attractions like Australia Zoo, Aussie World, SEA LIFE Mooloolaba, Big Kart Track and The Ginger Factory, canoeing or wandering the many markets. Kick up your heels at events like the Caloundra Music Festival or Gympie Music Muster, discover your green thumb at the Queensland Garden Expo or get the blood pumping at IRONMAN 70.3 World Championships. Factor in an indulgent massage for two, a quiet rainforest walk, a swim with the humpback whales (July-November), a round of golf or a romantic dinner in the mountains or by the sea.
The Sunshine Coast is the perfect destination to escape the daily grind with a relaxed beach culture and a variety of coastal and hinterland experiences to explore.
