Stretching along the Coral Sea about 100 kilometres north of Brisbane, the Sunshine Coast extends all the way to Rainbow Beach - named for its distinctive multi-coloured sand dunes. Along the pristine coastline choose to stay in Caloundra, Coolum or Noosa Heads. Each beach town offers family-friendly and group style accommodation with large beach houses, villas or apartments to rent.
If you prefer to be close to nature, opt for a farm stay at Blackwattle Farm or relaxing eco-friendly accommodation in the remarkable Glasshouse Mountains, a series of steep sided volcanic plugs which dominate the Sunshine Coast Hinterland. There’s a range accommodation to suit any experience and budget.
In upmarket Noosa, you’re spoilt with choice with refined hotels like The Sebel or Sofitel Hotel located on trend-setting Hastings Street - where you can experience uninterrupted views of the Noosa coastline in all the comforts of a luxury hotel. If privacy or a romantic holiday is more your style, choose to spend a week in your very own dream home with a private pool through Airbnb.
