Queensland’s Sunshine Coast is among Australia’s most desirable holiday hotspots, boasting pristine coastline together with a virtually unlimited assortment of things to see and do. The lush Sunshine Coast hinterland extends from the world-heritage listed Glass House Mountains right through to the picturesque Mary Valley. Embark on a rainforest trek, sample locally produced wines and cheeses, or browse the fine arts and crafts made by local artists. Following the shoreline from Noosa Heads to Caloundra you can expect to discover a never-ending range of attractions to grab your interest, not to mention countless beaches perfect for swimming, surfing, fishing, kayaking, or relaxing on the sandy shores and watching the world go by.
If a morning filled with shopping is exactly what you’re after, head to the Eumundi for original artworks, sculptures, furniture, handmade toys, homewares, skincare fashion and jewellery by local designers. Touted one of Australia's best artisan bazaars, it’s the ultimate spot to purchase those unique gifts or holiday keepsakes. A trip to SEA LIFE is another must while holidaying on the Sunshine Coast. Conveniently located at Mooloolaba Wharf it’s a haven for a large number of sea creatures. Discover sharks, seals, turtles, stingrays, sawfish, and tropical fish. Then there’s the admired Australia Zoo, along with the popular Aussie World fun-park and extraordinary Aussie Tavern. Nearby on Steve Irway Way is Australia’s biggest racetrack, with 50 go-karts on 1.2km of track complete with straights, bends, chicanes, and hair-rising hairpins. Or perhaps make an excursion to the Ginger Factory, where you can learn about cooking and using ginger, or pick your own strawberries at Gowinta Farm.
