About Sunshine Coast

Spanning over 60 km along the Queensland Coastline, the Sunshine Coast is renowned for multi-coloured sand dunes, mangrove forests, and shallow lakes. True to its name, the region enjoys year-round sunshine.  With the subtropical climate, every day here feels like a vacation and there is a lot to do too!

The lovely white sand beaches, lush rainforests, and stunning waterways provide the perfect backdrop for your adventures. Spend your days exploring quaint villages of the Hinterland, learn how to surf at Noosa Heads Main Beach or relax on a Mooloolaba River cruise to enjoy Sunshine coast from the waters. 

Sunshine Coast is known as Queensland’s ‘sunshine pantry’ for a reason. Thanks to its volcanically rich terrain, the local produce here is super fresh and nutrient-packed! Oh, and also Sunshine Coast is Australia’s craft beer capital – so, ‘cheers’ to endless flavours and cosy breweries!

Whether you're in the mood for adventure or just want to chill, the Sunshine Coast is here to dish out both. And guess what? The tastiest bites of adventure and relaxation are served up on those oh-so-lovely boat cruises in Sunshine Coast. So, hop aboard and let the good times float your way!
