Chase an endless summer on the Sunshine Coast

Sponsored content: With more than 100km of incredible coastline and year-round warm temperatures, your endless summer on the Sunshine Coast is waiting.

A name like Sunshine Coast conjures images of surf, sand and sun and you’ll find all that in spades  and more. For real.

From King’s Beach in Caloundra all the way up to Noosa Main Beach, there is a beach to suit every mood. Each one with its own features and facilities.

With ancient volcanic peaks, whispering rainforests, awe-inspiring waterfalls and pristine waterways, the Sunshine Coast is a haven for natural wonders and outdoor adventure.

Bushwalking, climbing and nature reign supreme when exploring the Glass House Mountains and some of the 60 national and conservation parks found on the Sunshine Coast.

Breathe in the crisp air as you wander among tall open forests or spot platypus in crystal-clear creeks. Choose from Amamoor or Imbil State Forests, and Kondalilla or Mapleton National Parks, just to name a few.

Discover fresh local produce, homemade treats, Indigenous art, funky jewellery, handmade clothing and talented buskers at markets right across the Sunshine Coast.

If you wander past the eclectic market stalls in this corner of Queensland, it won’t take you long to realise why the Sunshine Coast ranks as one of the top “market” destinations in Australia.

One of the most famous markets in Australia, The Original Eumundi Markets, is truly a cultural experience. 

Every Wednesday and Saturday, this hinterland town comes alive with quirky stalls, delicious food carts bursting with global flavours, entertaining street performers and that unique holiday gift to take home.

Pineapples, lychees and strawberries, oh my! From farm gates and food tours to freshly caught seafood, the Sunshine Coast food scene is rich in its diversity. 

Take your pick of hatted restaurants, fresh-produce markets, farm gates and cellar doors in the region, whether you only have time for a half-day graze or a week-long smorgasbord.
