About the Sunshine Coast

Known for its beautiful weather, great beaches, fun attractions and plenty of wonderful outlooks, Queensland’s Sunshine Coast more than earns its name. South to north, there are over 70 kilometres of white surf beaches stretching across the Sunshine Coast, with plenty of awesome breaks offering clean waves in numerous locations, meaning both surfers and beach lovers in general will be in their element here. Combine all its positives and you’ve got one of Australia’s most family-friendly destinations.

The “Sunny Coast” as it’s known colloquially also provides a pleasant blend of scenic and nature-based activities throughout its reaches that can prove equally beautiful – and yet far less crowded – than other similar holiday hotspots, with not just its beaches but a series of lovely rivers and waterways that make for excellent boating, fishing, swimming and much more. Situated within an easy drive from QLD’s capital Brisbane, it thus serves as one of the most popular escape spots in South East QLD.

Attractions – both man-made and natural alike – abound, from perhaps the most famous wildlife park in Australia, the late, great Steve Irwin’s Australia Zoo, to popular aquarium UnderWater World, to the wonderfully lush hinterland with its impressive Glasshouse Mountains and quaint mountain villages of Montville and Maleny that offers a great atmosphere combining rainforest with an English-style town. Diversity is the name of the game here, and it shows. For more info on the Sunshine Coast, check out our most popular Sunshine Coast travel articles below.

Are you travelling as a family, or an older couple looking to relax? A retail junkie, or a nature buff? Find out which of these two destinations is better for you here. Read more >>
