Sunshine Coast Itineraries

by Experience Oz staff

The Sunshine Coast provides a lovely blend of nature and activities and is a popular destination for holidaymakers from all over the country and the world.

Home to many beautiful beaches strewn throughout its reaches that are far less crowded than those found in many other tourist destinations, a series of beautiful rivers and waterways that make for excellent boating, fishing and swimming, and much more.

A city with a laid-back atmosphere, the Sunshine Coast is known for its sunny weather which in turn leads to there always being plenty to do outside.

We've put together a series of recommended itineraries for visitors to the Sunshine Coast, regardless if you are staying for 2, 3, 4 or 5 days. We hope that our suggestions will assist the first-time visitor in formulating an efficient and highly enjoyable Sunshine Coast sightseeing plan that assures no essential sight is left unseen, and that your time on the Sunshine Coast is maximised to the fullest!
