Sunshine Coast Holidays

One of the most beautiful jewels in the Queensland tourism crown, the Sunshine Coast consists of a spectacular string of golden beaches stretching from Double Island Point in the north to Bribie Island in the south. It is a region synonymous with pristine beaches, whale watching cruises from Hervey Bay and 4WD adventure tours on the World Heritage listed Fraser Island.

The Sunshine Coast has been a favorite family holiday destination for generations of Australians attracted to the long stretches of pristine beaches, crystal clear waters and rolling surf breaking onto patrolled, family friendly beaches. River estuaries and calm backwaters are perfect for water sports of all kinds. The nearby cool, elevated hinterland is a place of quaint villages, roadside afternoon teas, craft shops and bush walking through magnificent National Parks. 

The most popular holiday destinations on the Sunshine Coast are:

Noosa - A beautiful location and a prized address, being the most fashionable and upmarket location on the Sunshine Coast. Noosa is the site of one the better surfing spots on the Sunshine Coast. 

Coolum - A charming village with an excellent surf beach and the centre for recent resort development extending north towards Noosa. 

Maroochydore - A mix of golden beaches, parks and the Maroochydore River. One of the more popular resort towns with a mixture of modern resorts and original holiday homes.

Mooloolaba & Alexandra Headland - Another location for good surf beaches and one of the foremost centers for shopping and entertainment on the Sunshine Coast. Mooloolaba has developed into one of the most popular resort centers and Mooloolaba accommodation is mostly contemporary beachfront resorts and apartments.

Caloundra - a family holiday centre surrounded by 12 km of beaches. This popular fishing spot has access to the Pumicestone Channel which is a popular spot for all water sports. 

The Hinterland - A popular area for day tours through the magnificent countryside at the top of the Blackall Range. Enjoy panoramic views overlooking the Sunshine Coast and quaint country towns. Visit the unusual Glasshouse Mountains, inland from Caloundra, for excellent scenic drives, bushwalking and rock-climbing.
