Sunshine Coast

A more laid-back alternative to the Gold Coast, the Sunshine Coast offers excellent weather all year-round on Queensland’s stunning shoreline. Located an hour’s drive north of Brisbane, the Sunshine Coast contains four separate areas, each with their own distinct charms. Long stretches of gorgeous golden sands can be found all over the Sunshine Coast, offering a combination of quiet swimming beaches and wild surfing waves. Indulge in some retail therapy by browsing the unique artwork, jewellery and fashion at the Eumundi Markets, whilst fresh local produce can be sampled at the Noosa Farmers Market. With the Cotton Tree Market, the Peregian Beach Market and Caloundra’s Markets on Bulcock, the Sunshine Coast offers a shopper’s paradise set amongst an outstanding beachlife.
