Holiday Sunshine Coast…
From the local sea breeze Mooloolaba offers, to the exquisite beauty the mountain hinterland of Maleny, the Sunshine Coast is one of the best places to holiday in Australia. It offers the best of the beachside lifestyle, hinterland scenery, countryside hills, buzzing metropolitan shopping and dining options.
Stretching down the coast from Noosa to Caloundra and inland to Maleny and the Glasshouse Mountains, there is so much to see and do for any family, couple or traveler on holidays. Sunshine Coast site seeing locations (other than the gorgeous sandy beaches!) are various including the Australia Zoo, the Noosa National Park, the Eumundi Markets, the Big Pineapple, Sea Life and more.

Here are some answers to frequently asked questions about staying with us on the Sunshine Coast!
What type of accommodation do you have?
Our list of holiday homes and apartments is big and full of variety! We have everything from beachside apartments to full holiday houses with ocean views. We have budget options and luxury options, small rooms and big family-sized homes. We have accommodation right on the waterfront or inland as well.
We have properties to cater to every need. There are even pet-friendly options so your four-legged furry family members can stay with you.
How far in advance should I book?
With such a large range of properties, we often still have something available for your last minute plans – but we recommend getting in as early as possible. The Sunshine Coast is such an appealing travel destination, especially for families, so make sure you get in early with any Christmas and school holiday plans!
You can use our online booking system to see what accommodation options are available on your desired travel dates, and book them in to make sure it’s yours!
What is the weather like?
This one speaks for itself a little bit – most of the time it is sunny! That’s not to say we don’t have rainy days (and there is still plenty to see and do if that happens…), but the Sunshine Coast is known as the place to be to spend days outside, on the beach and in nature with a subtropical climate making it warm most days of the year. December is usually when summer really begins to heat up on the Sunshine Coast, hitting the high twenties and often into the thirties on the thermometer. From April to September the nights can be cool, particularly if you are traveling into the mountains or hinterland, but this rarely requires more than long pants and a warm coat (no winter snow gear necessary!).
What’s the best way to get around?
There are numerous ways to travel on the Sunshine Coast with everything from airports, public transport and ride-sharing options.
The Sunshine Coast airport is in the midst of expanding in 2020, however the flights in and out are often few. International flights, like from Europe or the United States will either have a connecting flight to the Sunshine Coast from Sydney or Melbourne, or fly into Brisbane’s International Airport which is less than a 2 hour drive away.
You can get to the Sunshine Coast from Brisbane’s airport via train, bus, shuttle or car (hire, taxi or uber).
DRIVING ON THE COAST
One of the big appeals of the Sunshine Coast is site seeing the many attractions and different areas from the coast to the hinterland, Noosa to Caloundra. Depending on where you want to go, the Sunshine Coast is quite spread out. Particularly if you are wanting to explore both North and South beaches and the hinterland. If that’s what you’re planning on doing then hiring a car will be the easiest option for getting around. If that isn’t an option for you, however, there is a large network of public transport buses that go all over the Sunshine Coast.
If you’re keeping it simple and not planning on traveling much (eg. if you are having a relaxing beachside weekend getaway) then you may find getting a taxi or uber the best option when you need it. If you’re staying in the heart of Mooloolaba then you will find a lot of beach, dining and entertainment options will be walking distance, or only a very short drive, away.
Where are the best places to shop and eat?
The Sunshine Coast has options for every kind of eating or shopping experience!
If you are into boutiques, then you will love the famous shopping walk along Noosa Heads’s Hastings Street. The Sunshine Coast is also home to the country’s largest artesian market, the Eumundi Markets, which makes for a great day of shopping fresh and delicious local produce, hand made treasures, natural therapies and enjoying great entertainment. If you are looking for a David Jones or a bigger list of retailers, then the Sunshine Plaza has what you are looking for. It has recently been redeveloped and has over 300 stores including David Jones, Myer, Kmart, Target, Big W, Coles, Woolworths.
There are a wide variety of dining options on the Sunshine Coast for every taste and budget. The three main areas for delicious dining are Mooloolaba, Noosa and Maroochydore’s Ocean street.
Along Mooloolaba’s Esplanade there are many places to eat. For fine dining, we suggest the degustation at the Spice Bar, an award-winning Asian fusion restaurant. There are lots of Italian options with Augellos, Via Italia and Bella Venezia. Seafood delights at Fish On Parkyn, or delicious Western food at Dirty Moes, Good Bar or the Bar and Grill – just to name a few!
Noosa is home to some of the finest award-winning restaurants in the country! Restaurants with AGFG chef hats include the Wasabi Restaurant & Bar, Ricky’s River Bar & Restaurant, View by Matt Golinski, Embassy XO and Noosa Beach House by Peter Kuruvita on Hastings Street.
Ocean Street in Maroochydore is a great place to go for food, especially if you are looking for the Sunshine Coast night life. It is the food and wine hub of the central Sunshine Coast, and where you will find markets, clubs, bowling and putt putt open after dark.
Don’t let these suggestions stop you from looking further! There are some amazing hidden dining treasures to seek out on the Sunshine Coast such as the Spirit House in Yandia, Tamarind in Maleny and Sum Yung Guys in Sunshine Beach.
What’s the best beach for surfing or family days?
There are more than 30 beaches on the Sunshine Coast to choose from! Each has its own special qualities and we recommend seeing as many as you can.
If you’re coming to surf, Stormrider’s surf guide recommends February to May as the best season for surfing. Noosa’s beaches are renowned for their surfing conditions when there is North-East to Easterly swells. If you are staying at Mooloolaba you will have to make your way north to Alexandra Headland or south to Buddina or Kawana Waters as Mooloolaba beach is protected and doesn’t often have many waves!
This makes Mooloolaba beach ideal for family days. The beachfront shops and dining, grassy areas and BBQs with shade, long sandy beach stretch and low waves make it the best spot to set up for a day with the whole family. If you are looking for more variety, Noosa Head’s main beach, Coolum beach and Kings Beach in Caloundra are other beaches that families often love to spend the day at.
What disability assistance and health services are there?
There are a number of places on the Sunshine Coast that offer disability assistance and mobility equipment hire, like Lakeside Mobility in Birtinya. Comlink and Suncoast Cabs offer disabled transport services.
If you need medical attention while you are visiting the Sunshine Coast, you have a number of options. The newly opened University Hospital at Kawana Waters is state of the art. There is also an after-hours doctor’s service you can call or many great GP clinics on the Coast.
Are there any local events to plan for?
There are a number of local events on the Sunshine Coast that draw a big crowd that you may want to plan around. Whether you want to come for the event or avoid the dates for the crowd is up to you!
Sports and fitness are a big part of the Sunshine Coast lifestyle, and that is reflected in the events that are held. You will want to keep an eye out for the annual Mooloolaba Triathlon (usually in March), Noosa Triathlon (usually in October) and Ironman events.
There are a number of other festivals that happen on the Sunshine Coast including Noosa’s International food and wine festival, the Big Pineapple music festival and the Gympie music muster.
Can I travel with my pet?
We know that for some people their pet is literally a member of their family. You do not have to leave them behind! We have a number of pet-friendly accommodation options for varying budgets and size needs.
If you are traveling with your pet, you may be interested in knowing that the Sunshine Coast has lots of pet-friendly beaches and adventures!
