Coolum, Sunshine Coast, QLD
The superb weather of the Sunshine Coast, a little over an hour from Brisbane, is perfect for an action-packed holiday or quiet escape at any time of year. The Sunshine Coast has four sub-regions, all with their own unique attractions. Pristine beaches stretch for miles, with both safe swimming beaches and spectacular surf breaks.
Hastings Street in Noosa is packed with stylish restaurants and fashion boutiques just steps from the beach. Sunshine Beach, Sunrise Beach, Marcus Beach, Peregian Beach and Coolum Beach are all uncrowded surf beaches with sparkling blue water and pure, white sand. At the end of Hastings Street, the Noosa National Park features spectacular coastal scenery and an abundance of native Australian wildlife.
