The Sunshine Coast region stretches from the top of Noosa down to Caloundra. It is a part of Queensland that offers a lot and its hard to know where to start. Don’t stress as we have put together some of our favourite things to do along the Sunshine Coast.
Eat and Drink Till Your Hearts Content
One thing we love to do on holiday is eat. Restaurants in and around Noosa are known for creating local eats that are to die for. This is due to Noosa’s location in between the sea and hinterland that contains a lot of daily produce. Restaurants like View by Matt Golinski, Aromas Noosa and Gusto Riverfront Restaurant all offer fresh local produce for you to enjoy.
Throughout the area there are a lot of waterfalls worth exploring. One of the most well-known waterfalls is Kondalilla Falls located west of the Sunshine Coast. What makes this one of the most picturesque waterfalls is the 90m drop that is perfect for those holiday snaps. There are two walks to get access to the Falls. A short walk along the Picnic Creek Circuit that takes you through rainforest to the rockpools at the base of the waterfall where you can enjoy a swim in the aqua water. The much longer Kondalilla Circuit passes the rockpools and drops down to the base of the waterfall, a natural space you won’t forget any time soon.
If you like to hike through a rainforest or climb a mountain, the Sunshine Coast has a lot on offer. There is one hike that is a must. Whether you prefer an early morning walk to catch the sunrise or a late afternoon to view the sunset, Mt Ngungun is one of the most photographed hikes in the Sunshine Coast. The walking track is a 2.8km trail that offers great views of Mount Tibrogargan, Mount Coonowrin and Mount Beerwah that are all sites to see.
The Sunshine Coast coastline is full of beaches to explore and relax by. One of our favourites is Kawana Beach located south of Maroochydore. The beach is 9km long and offers so much to see and do. Grab your surfboard and ride the waves, fish along the rip holes or longshore troughs or walk along the beach to Point Cartwright Lighthouse to capture the sunset, which is a site to remember.
