The Sunshine Coast is a sun kissed cocktail of pristine beaches, low-rise resorts, restaurants, bars and cafés, it appeals to the masses because unlike its southern sister the Gold Coast, it is a more relaxed and laid back option with equally as beautiful coastlines and sub-tropical hinterland forests.
Sunshine Coast accommodation ranges from the beautiful Caloundra in the south to the swanky Noosa up north, and out west to the natural Maleny. The region is incredibly diverse and offers a variety of holiday options, for a romantic retreat head to the hinterland and snuggle up in a cozy cottage with waterfall views. Noosa is the perfect spot for a girl’s weekend with Hastings street offering up shopping, bars, cafés, and of course the beach which is just a hop, skip, and jump away. Family fun is available in abundance on the Sunshine Coast with Caloundra, Twin Waters, Peregian Beach and more great locations to set up shop with plenty of child friendly activities to partake in. If a surf holiday is what you crave book your Sunshine Coast accommodation in Mooloolaba, Alexandra Heads, Noosa, Coolum, or Kawana all of which have the turquoise walls of water you seek.
Surrounded by the famous Glasshouse Mountains and a plethora of national parks there is an abundance of trail walking, hiking, mountain climbing, abseiling, rock climbing and other adventuring to be done. To see the marine life up close and personal search no further than Underwater world located just off the Mooloolaba esplanade where you can gaze upon sharks, seals, turtles, stingrays, otters, sawfish, tropical fish and much more. If land dwelling creatures are more your cup of tea Australia Zoo is located on the Sunshine Coast and is a must see attraction.
