Sunshine Coast

Naturally refreshing Sunshine Coast

National parks in Queensland’s Sunshine Coast offer balmy weather year round, incredible natural wonders and relaxing adventures. Here, outdoors is a way of life, and ‘relaxed’ is the only possible answer to the question ‘How are you?’ Go koala spotting, see the dolphins from the rocky headlands, visit cool hinterland rainforests, and soak up the mountain and coastal scenery. Find a space to connect with the healing power of nature. Hike for days on a Great Walk or take a short stroll to scenic lookouts, explore the waterways of the upper Noosa River by boat, canoe or from the shore, and make time to listen to the stories of nature and the Aboriginal ancestors of this land. Have a gourmet picnic next to a waterfall or on the beach, with produce from local providores and growers in this fertile region. Feel nourished and rejuvenated as you unwind at a weekend retreat, and leave the Sunshine Coast ready to take on the world again.
