A stop in the Sunshine Coast on your tailor-made tour of eastern Australia is perfect for adventure and relaxation alike.
Just over an hour’s drive up the coast from Brisbane, this popular Australian holiday resort offers a more low-key vibe than Gold Coast, with great beaches and superb weather to soak up those Aussie rays.
The main areas are Mooloolaba, Caloundra and Coolum Beach – but you can also head inland to the hinterland and Glasshouse Mountains, or to Nambour; home of the Big Pineapple and quirky retro shops and cafés!
Top surf breaks – like Moffat Beach – and safe swimming beaches – Mooloolaba Spit in particular - make this area a popular resort for surfers and swimmers, with those who enjoy being under the surface venturing to the HMAS Brisbane Conservation Park for superb diving opportunities. A number of championship golf courses will please fans of the fairways too.
Make sure you leave time to wander Eumundi Markets for local artwork and jewellery and take a cruise on the Maroochy River to Maroochy Wetland Sanctuary with its kangaroos, wallabies and birdlife. And don’t forget to head to the hinterland for a wander around the townships on the other of the Glass House Mountains and Mary Valley too!
