Holidays to the Sunshine Coast

With its golden sun-drenched beaches, breezy seaside towns, rugged mountain hikes and unique markets, the Sunshine Coast is hard to beat. 
Just one hour north of Brisbane, "the Sunny Coast" is a fave getaway for the city’s locals, but why should they have all the fun? Book your Sunshine Coast hotel with us and start hiking, swimming, surfing, adventuring and living life to the fullest in a region that lives up to its name.

History

The Sunny Coast is the third largest city in Queensland, after Brisbane and the more developed Gold Coast further south. In 1770, Captain Cook became the first European to spot the Glass House Mountains in the Sunshine Coast hinterland. Over time timber and small farming industries have boosted the population and economy of the area. Today surfing and tourism are major draw cards, and for good reason! The Sunshine Coast is said to have some of the best surfing conditions in Australia with over 100 surfing hotspots.

Things to do

At Nambour’s Big Pineapple, you can take a touristy photo and then wander around the Saturday morning markets. Animal lovers and Steve Irwin fans can spend time with the crocs at the Australia Zoo. Swim with sharks, hang with seals or walk through an 80m underwater tunnel at Mooloolaba’s Underwater World, the biggest oceanarium in Queensland.

In Palmview, you get two tourist attractions in the one spot: Ettamogah Pub, a quirky-looking bar based on the cartoons of Ken Maynard, and Aussie World, a theme park packed with family-friendly rides.

The beaches are something special on the Sunny Coast. Sparkling clean and shiny white, they’re patrolled by lifesavers and often blissfully free of crowds; making things especially easy if you’re holidaying with kids! There’s the live music and bustling markets of Peregian Beach, the safe swimming and surf beaches of Noosa and the awesome breaks of Mooloolaba’s Point Cartwright. Take a swim and a rugged, rocky walk along Caloundra’s stunning Moffat Beach. If fishing, beach BBQs or bushwalks are right up your alley, maybe you’d be keen on a few days on Bribie Island?

With all of the Sunshine Coast’s national parks, forests and mountains, you’ll find no shortage of places to hike or bushwalk. Discover the hoop pine woods of Amamoor State Forest or the waterfall of Kondalilla Falls National Park, in the charming Hinterland village of Montville.

Keen hikers can take on the mountains of the Glasshouse Mountains National Park, like Mt. Tibrogargan or Mt. Beerwah. There are bushwalking routes to the summits as well as abseiling and rock climbing sites.

Shopping and dining

The best shopping on the Coast can be found at the markets, like the Eumundi Market, where handmade art meets fresh food and live entertainment. The towns are full of delicious restaurants, the Hinterland has amazing wineries, and the region’s towns have a lively nightlife scene with live music at plenty of local watering holes and surf clubs.
Getting here

Wherever you stay on the Coast, it's sure to be a great spot for some much-needed R&R.
