Places to stay

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.

Things to do

Home to natural beauty, the Sunshine coast offers the perfect destination for all things outdoors. If you love the beach and sun, then you’ll find yourself in paradise. From surfing and kayaking to jet skiing, you'll find an activity for both the young and young at heart.  If relaxing is more your style, simply grab a book and lay by the pool or on the beach.

For those who want to escape the beach and surf, a trip to Montville in the Sunshine Coast Hinterland is a must to visit art galleries and wineries. Nature enthusiasts will day trip to Kondalilla National Park to explore the numerous walking tracks. For the more adventurous, soak up the beauty of the Caloundra region with a scenic coastal walk. Take on the entire 25 kilometre stretch from Golden Beach in the south to Mooloolaba in the north or enjoy strolling along sections of the walk at a leisurely pace.
