Sunshine Coast

new experiences around every corner

Only an hours’ drive north of Brisbane, the Sunshine Coast incorporates the beachside towns of Caloundra, Maroochydore, Mooloolaba, Coolum, Noosa and Rainbow Beach whilst being surrounded by lush hinterland. Visitors will be welcomed into a community filled with warm, genuine locals appreciating and sharing the Sunshine Coast way of life.

The Sunshine Coast has a wide variety of tourism and leisure experiences ranging from 100km of coastal beaches and waterways to scenic hinterland areas, national parks, world-class resorts, quality restaurants and several attractions.

The region is rich in diversity from the majestic Glass House Mountains, to the rolling surf beaches along the coastline, the coloured sands of the Cooloola Coast out to the fertile farmland of the hinterland and Mary Valley. It’s also home to the Noosa Everglades – one of only two everglades systems in the world – that stretches across two UNESCO Biosphere Reserves – the Noosa and Great Sandy – in the upper reaches of the Noosa River.

Things to do

Visit Australia zoo
Home to an incredible array of native animals - spend a day getting to know the country’s weird and wonderful creatures. This is also the founding place of world-renowned Wildlife Animal Hospital, where visitors are able to experience first-hand the work being done to preserve and protect Australia’s unique species.
Noosa National Park
Find a quiet place to take an ocean dip and soak up the sun in Noosa National Park. Wander the coastal walk and find a secluded beach - the area is well known for koala and dolphin spotting right along the headland.
Mount Coolum
Rise with the sun and tackle the 2-hour climb to the summit of Mount Coolum. While the hike up this 25 million-year-old volcanic dome may take a degree of tenacity, you’ll be rewarded with 360 degree views of Coolum Beach and Mount Coolum National Park.
Sunreef Mooloolaba
Get up close and personal with Queensland’s incredible marine life at Sunreef Mooloolaba; the largest dive centre in South East Queensland. From swimming with whales (July-October), snorkelling or diving local reefs—including the iconic HMAS Brisbane, to getting your PADI diving licence; this is the ultimate day out on the Sunshine Coast.
Glass House Mountains
Reach new heights; hike to one of the 11 peaks of the Glass House Mountains. With a myriad of walks for all levels of climbers, these ancient ranges are still spiritually significant to Aboriginal Traditional Owners, capturing the magic of the Sunshine Coast Hinterland.
