Sunshine Coast

Approximately 80 kilometers north of Brisbane,
Queenslands Capital City, the Sunshine coast
beaches extend for over 100 kilometers and
include Noosa, a favorite for some of the worlds
rich and famous.

Sunshine Coast Attractions
The holiday haven of the Sunshine Coast begins
north of Brisbane. It is an area not only
renowned for its great beaches, good surfing and
fishing, but also the Glass House Mountains, the
hinterland, Cooloola and Gympie. The coastline is
dotted with the resort townships of Caloundra,
Mooloolaba, Alexandra Headland, Maroochydore,
Coolum Beach and Noosa Heads. From Noosa begins
the Fraser Coast stretching north to Hervey Bay
incorporating Maryborough, the Bunya Mountains
and Fraser Island. The sub-tropical climate and
mild winters make the region the perfect
playground for outdoor enthusiasts

Geographical landmarks include the striking
Glasshouse Mountains that jut out of the
surrounding landscape and whose heights take on a
misty transparency against the sky. The Glass
House Mountains have volcanic peaks scattered
across the coastal plains that rise 300 meters or
more.

The Beaches Of The Sunshine Coast
Just over an hours drive north of Brisbane, the
Sunshine Coast consists of golden beach upon
golden beach. Beginning at Caloundra in the south
and stretching north through Mooloolaba,
Alexandra Headland, Maroochydore and Coolum, the
coastal strip is crowned by the ultra fashionable
resort of Noosa, a famous surfing mecca since the
early 1960's.

The Big Pineapple The Big Pineapple is one of the
most famous of Australia's BIG tourist icons
along with the Big Banana at Coffs Harbour, the
Big Merino at Goulburn and several more. The
overgrown fiberglass pineapple, which houses a
video display on tropical fruit growing, is just
the front for a very well organized and popular
attraction which is educational as well as
entertaining. The 112 hectare plantation grows a
variety of tropical fruit as well as the very
sought after macadamia nut. Take a ride in a
Nutmobile or miniature Cane Train.

Sunshine Coast Weather
  • Extreme weather conditions are common in many
    parts of Australia.
  • Typhoons are not an uncommon characteristic of
    the Sunshine Coast
  • While its possible for a sunny, hot afternoon to
    be interrupted by a sudden thunderstorm, more
    often than not Australias weather is beautiful
    one day, perfect the next.
  • Showered with frequent rains, from the east trade
    winds, this is the wettest region of Australia

8
Sunshine Coast Culture
The Eumundi Markets are on every weekend in the
small township and are absolutely massive.
Stretching over what seems like half the town,
you can find original local handcrafts, fine art
and a bunch of other odd and interesting
knickknacks. The street music and performers will
keep you entertained while the food stalls,
street cafes and traditional Aussie pubs will
keep your hunger and thirst more than satisfied. 
Surfing, swimming, snorkeling and diving are just
some of the recreational activities available to
Sunshine Coasters.
