The Sunshine Coast has an almost magnetic attraction. Just ask the folks from nearby Brisbane who regularly heed the call to the region's mountains, hinterland, coastal towns and beaches to unwind on weekends and school holidays.
Sip on a latte or bushwalk by the sea in the chic town of Noosa with its blend of look-at-me urban style and the natural beauty of Noosa National Park. For a traditional seaside holiday you're spoilt for choice in beachside towns like Maroochydore and Mooloolaba, the heart of the Sunshine Coast. Or for something a little more soulful there's the creative hubs and alternative lifestyle of hinterland villages like Maleny and Montville.
For family fun try the local theme parks or frolic with the kids on one of the many safe beaches. If outdoor action beckons then how does a 5000 feet skydive sound? Or if your good taste means gourmet food then you'll discover a foodie paradise here, with award -winning restaurants, food and wine trails and food festivals.
