Come for the beaches, stay for the lifestyle and leave wishing you didn't have to
North of Brisbane, the Sunshine Coast is bursting with picturesque beachside towns ranging from swanky and stylish to casual and comfortable. If you are craving an all-out luxury beach holiday but are confined to the space of a few days, book your stay at Noosa for a dose of relaxation. Check into a day spa and choose from a menu of indulgent therapies before spending the afternoon leisurely exploring the trendy retailers along Hastings Street. If you'd rather get out and about, cruise or kayak the Noosa River or find a secluded beach to cast a line. Don't worry if you don't catch anything, most Noosa restaurants base their menus around the fabulously fresh local seafood.
Day trip to the Sunshine Coast Hinterland where charming towns oozing quiet beauty are dotted between farms and bushland. Explore the quaint centres Montville and Maleny with morning walks through the countryside and cosy nights at bed and breakfast cottages. The agriculturally gifted Hinterlands boast unlimited opportunities to sample local fare, from award-winning dairy products to boutique wines and fresh, juicy fruit. If you can't squeeze in a Hinterland excursion, swing by the Eumundi Markets (about 20 minutes from Noosa) where hundreds of regional producers and artisans sell their goods.
The beach scene changes as you travel down the coast, but one thing they all have in common is a relaxed way of life. Breathe in the youthful vibrancy of Mooloolaba where restaurants and shops line the beachfront, or opt for the adventure-packed Maroochydore for jet-skiing and surfing. Treat your family to a weekend away in Caloundra – between Kings Beach, Dicky Beach and Moffat beach you will certainly have your fill of sand, surf and sunshine.
