Flights To Sunshine Coast

You’d better believe a place with a name like Sunshine Coast is chockablock with beaches, seaside promenades and of course, tons of sun. But we probably don’t have to sell you on this part of the Queensland coast—it’s been a popular getaway for decades. Come see what all the fuss is about with Sunshine Coast flights that are as easy to book as a Coral Sea breeze.

Getting Around Sunshine Coast

Flights to Sunshine Coast Airport (MCY) land you 10km north of town. Catch the bus into town or better yet, pre-book a transfer with a shuttle service. If you’re planning on doing more than laying on the beach, you’ll probably want to book car hire. If not, bust out that sun cream and get tanning.

When You Land…

Know what else is great about beaches? They never close! Take your towel straight to Maroochydore and claim your spot early. Fuel up at one of the cafes along the Esplanade first, if all the vitamin D won’t be quite enough energy.

If you’re arriving in the afternoon and already have plenty of energy, go north from the airport and explore Noosa Heads. Climbing Emu Mountain is a seriously “emu-sing” afternoon; there’s surfing, kayaking and sunning to be had here, too.

It’s not just beach bums that want Sunshine Coast hotels in Maroochydore. Night owls can drop off their stuff and head right out on the town around Duporth Avenue.

Live Like a Local

To live like a local, you’ve got to shop like one. Luckily, you’ve got plenty of options in Sunshine Coast. On Wednesdays and Saturdays, Eumundi Markets are bumping; in Noosa Heads, Hastings Street is the place to be. Bonus: It’s just steps from the beach.

We admit, if you hate sunshine, ocean breezes and that awesome way your hair looks after a day at the beach, you probably won’t like it here. But if you’re down for fun in the sun, book cheap flights to Sunshine Coast on Wotif and get going!

How far in advance can you book a flight?

Trying to figure out how early you should book your flight? It’s possible to start comparing international airfares on Wotif up to 12 months in advance. However, it does depend on the carrier as not all airlines release their prices that far out. According to Wotif’s 2019 flight demand trends, last minute planners can still bag a bargain with some of the cheapest airfares appearing 1-3 weeks prior to travel.
