Just one hour north of Brisbane in Queensland is the region known as the Sunshine Coast – Australia’s best kept secret and Queensland’s hidden gem. From the majestic Glass House Mountains to Noosa and the coloured sands of Rainbow Beach, the region includes over 100 kilometres of pristine sandy beaches, surrounded by the quiet beauty of coastal and hinterland villages. The Sunshine Coast offers you an Australia vacation abundant in nature, with a relaxed beach culture, fresh local food, world-class events, and bucket list experiences just waiting to be explored. Feel like a local from the moment you arrive, welcomed by sun-kissed surfers and bohemian artists, with no shortage of friendly people offering easy smiles. With an average of 300 days of sunshine per year, it’s no surprise they’re happy!

Tick off your bucket list experiences on the Sunshine Coast, visiting leading attractions such as Steve Irwin’s Zoo (also known as Australia Zoo) to get up close to Australia’s wildlife. Swim alongside humpback whales at Mooloolaba (July-October), visit one of the world’s finest producers of Ginger at the Ginger Factory, with its historic train rides, great shopping, educational tours, and stunning tropical gardens, and cruise the waterways and rivers of the Noosa Everglades, one of only two in the world. Make a visit to Mooloolaba Wharf - one of the busiest fishing ports in Australia, with trawlers bringing in fresh catches of fish, Mooloolaba prawns, lobsters, and spanner crabs, all available for purchase at local seafood shops.

One of the most iconic resort towns on the Sunshine Coast is the stylish and popular Noosa, known as the relaxation capital of Australia. It offers everything visitors on trips to Australia could want, with pristine beaches, a stunning coastline, natural surroundings and contemporary alfresco dining options, as well as many other activities.

The Sunshine Coast is a haven for natural wonders and outdoor adventure. In the hinterland, one can visit numerous national parks, including Mapleton Falls with its rainforests, Kondalilla, a refuge for native animal life, and the Glass House Mountains with its ancient volcanic peaks. Explore the pristine waterways of the Pumicestone Passage Marine Park and the neighbouring Noosa and Great Sandy Biospheres, which lead you along the Great Beach Drive via the dramatic coloured sand cliffs of Rainbow Beach. The drive takes you to nearby Fraser Island, with its rocky headlands and many beautiful lakes.

So for a diverse and relaxing vacation, along with plenty of warm weather, the Sunshine Coast needs to be on your travel itinerary. C’mon say G’day Downunder. Book one of our Australia vacations today and start exploring.
