Guide to the Sunshine Coast
Whether you’re seeking action-packed, nature-filled adventures or a relaxing beachside escape, the Sunshine Coast delivers the best of both worlds and plenty more in between.
Stretching from the coastal city of Caloundra, near Brisbane, to the Great Sandy National Park in the north, the Sunshine Coast is as vast as it is varied. White sand beaches and pristine waterways sit alongside lush rainforests and Heritage-listed national parks, with charming historic villages sprinkled throughout. From the coast to the hinterland, you’ll be spoiled for choice with fresh local produce and seafood, unique dining experiences, and many wonderful wineries and breweries. Top it off with a subtropical climate and exceptional nature experiences and you’ve found an ideal year-round destination that will surprise you in unexpected ways.
