Come for the beaches, stay for the lifestyle and leave wishing you didn't have to
Explore the Pumicestone Passage marine park from the laidback and family-friendly area of Caloundra, or visit Mooloolaba to partake in the buzzing beachside atmosphere. Head north to the popular destination of Noosa where you can enjoy beautiful beaches against a verdant hinterland. Stroll along Hastings Street to soak up the cosmopolitan lifestyle and indulge yourself in the many alfresco cafes and designer boutiques along this stylish strip.
The quiet Sunshine Coast hinterland towns of Mapleton, Montville and Maleny provide another facet of this relaxing area. With alternative roots, Maleny offers an organic lifestyle, while charming Montville is a step back in time with period architecture and quaint gifts, arts and crafts. Take a scenic drive to Mapleton National Park, a renowned picnic spot, to appreciate the lush greenery and natural attributes of this area. And, be sure to visit the famous Eumundi Markets where over 500 stalls purvey everything from gourmet treats to clothes and local artisan souvenirs.
