The Sunshine Coast has long been the choice of many as a holiday destination in South East Queensland, being only an hour’s drive north of Brisbane. We all know that it offers beautiful beaches spread along 55 kilometres of coastline and a gorgeous green lush hinterland, but there is so much more to enjoy. Here are 5 reasons to visit the superb Sunshine Coast:
1. Find your own private stretch of Beach
With 36 stunning sun-soaked beaches from Caloundra in the south to Noosa Heads in the north, you’re likely to find one that is relatively uncrowded and untrodden. Try beaches at Mudjimba, Peregian, Yaroomba, Marcus and Castaways Beach. For those of you who prefer the safety and security of a patrolled beach then look no further than Alexandra Headland or Mooloolaba Beach.
2. Lose yourself in the natural beauty and serenity of the Sunshine Coast Hinterland
Take in the stunning views of lush green valleys and magnificent mountains in the Sunshine Coast Hinterland. Take a day trip and soak in the views, stopping to check out art galleries, farm gates with fresh produce, funky little villages, world-class eateries and wineries. Or hike one of the amazing bush trails, find a waterfall and a rockpool to cool off in, throughout the hinterland. Discover the Glass House Mountains and the country towns of Maleny, Montville, Mapleton, Kenilworth, Yandina and Beerwah.
3. Indulge your tastebuds in Foodies Heaven
The Sunshine Coast has fast become a foodie’s paradise as it is brimming with wonderful farm fresh produce. Follow the food trail on the Sunshine Coast and you will find Cooking Schools, Farmer’s Markets and the iconic Eumundi Markets, fine dining and award winning restaurants, funky cafes, boutique breweries, wineries, cheese and chocolate factories, the Ginger Factory and seafood caught fresh from the trawler.
