The Sunshine Coast is undoubtedly one of Australia’s most scenically beautiful regions. Trek through the pristine rainforest dotted around the coast and visit wetland sanctuaries teeming with wildlife. Always beckoning are the warm waters of the Pacific Ocean, where it’s not uncommon to see dolphins join the surfers off the rocky points.

Experience the stunning views guaranteed to take your breath away in the Blackall Ranges. Visit charming mountain villages, secluded sandy beaches, national parks, state forests, rainforests or marvel at the magnificent Coloured Sands enroute to the worlds largest sand island – World Heritage Listed Fraser Island.

Some national parks in the region include: Cooloola National Park, Conondale National Park, Mooloolah River National Park, Glass House Mountains National Park, Kondalilla National Park and don’t miss the opportunity to go koala spotting in Australia’s most visited national park- Noosa National Park. There is also a vast array of tours available on the Sunshine Coast ranging from rainforest safaris to ecotourism tours and cruises, four wheel drive tours and tours to Fraser Island. Not to be missed is a trip up the Noosa River through the Everglades. The riverbanks are home to all manner of birdlife including cormorants, osprey eagles, ibises and cockatoos. You’ll be amazed at the diversity and beauty of the Sunshine Coast and with such an array of things to do and see you won’t want to leave.

Where Are Australia's Best Beaches?

Australia's Best Beaches

Australia has miles and miles of shoreline but which beaches are really great? Ultimately it depends on what you're looking for in a beach. Pristine wilderness without a single footprint in sight, the sparkle of cosmopolitan high rise on the waters edge, the adrenalin pumping roar of a powerful surf beach, or quite simply the perfect white squeaky sand that squelches between your toes.

See our short list of Australia's best beaches.
