Beach hop the Sunshine Coast

From busy shorefronts like Sunshine Beach to secluded sandy spots like Buddina Beach, there are near endless opportunities to cool down in the salty seas of the Sunshine Coast. Naturally, surfing, sailing, fishing, and coastal drives or walks are high on the holiday agenda. But there are also delightful adventures beyond the waves.

Drive to quaint townships like Maleny, Montville, and Nambour in the hinterland for charming local markets, farm-to-table dining, and hiking in nearby national parks.

Sunshine Coast favourites

Embrace the sunny goodlife with days spent surfing, shopping local, exploring national parks and meeting native wildlife in this laid-back land.

Noosa Heads

When you visit this stress-free township, you can swim at Noosa Main Beach, surf the Noosa World Surfing Reserve, picnic at the river, and hike coastal and forest trails in Noosa National Park. Plus, there’s endless seafront dining and drinking options for those who relax by doing less.

Eumundi Markets

Sunshine Coast makers, bakers and artists set up Australia’s largest artisan markets in Eumundi (about 20 minutes inland from Noosa) every Saturday and Wednesday. With a coffee and pastry in hand, peruse locally-crafted jewellery, ceramics, fashion, photography, and more to a soundtrack of live tunes.

Australia Zoo

The home of the crocodile hunter, the late Steve Irwin, is on the southern border of the Sunshine Coast. The Irwin family have run this wildlife conservation and rehab centre since the ’70s, and today visitors can meet dingos, red pandas, giraffes, echidnas, and many other native and exotic critters.

Hit the road

The Sunshine Coast encompasses such an incredible variety of holiday fun that you may not want to leave its bounds on a day trip. But if you don’t check out the stunning islands of Queensland, the adventure playground that is the Gold Coast, or the proud state capital, you’d be missing out. So, stay hydrated and get geared up for a road trip.

Fraser Island

The white and red sandy shores of the world’s largest sand island are just a four-hour drive and ferry float from the Sunshine Coast. Stay a while on the heritage-listed Fraser Island to enjoy whale watching, fishing, rainforest hikes, and swimming in turquoise waters.

Brisbane

Get to know the Queensland capital while you soak up local culture in the nightlife hubs of Fortitude Valley and South Bank. Brisbane is just over an hour’s drive away from Caloundra in the Sunshine Coast’s south, and is the gateway to adventure on the Stradbroke Islands and throughout Moreton Bay.

Gold Coast

Drive three hours south for a raucous romp through Australia’s theme park capital, the Gold Coast. You’ll find family-friendly thrills at Dreamworld, Whitewater World, Wet’n’Wild, and Warner Bros Movie World. You’re also bound to bump into music festivals, art shows, and sporting events.

Best Sunshine Coast driving roads

Purple squiggle

Great Beach Drive

The adventure starts in Noosa and rambles north through two UNESCO biospheres where you can spy dolphins, turtles, and whales during their migration. If you’re tackling the full route to Rainbow Beach, consider camping a night at Teewah Beach.

Blackall Range Tourist Drive

Head to the hills from Mooloolaba and motor along this 300km return route. You’ll be met with breathtaking views over subtropical rainforests in the Glass House Mountains before you spend a night in a historic hinterland town like Maleny or Reesville, then meander through Mapleton Falls National Park.

Coastal Drive

The Coastal Drive takes you along the full sandy expanse of the Sunshine Coast. Start in Caloundra to cruise through Kawan Waters, Alexandra Headland, and up to Sunshine Beach. Since it’s a cruisey 55km, you can make plenty of stop-offs for coast walks, snacks, and swims.
