Ashort drive from Brisbane is the stunning Sunshine Coast, a perfect choice for those seeking a more laidback alternative to the party capital of the Gold Coast while still enjoying the fruits of sunny and spectacular Queensland. There are a number of towns to choose from here, stretching all the way along the coast including Noosa, Coolum, Caloundra, Alexandra Headlands and Mooloolaba. Each of these towns offers their own highlights, with accommodation options plentiful across the region.
Like elsewhere in Queensland, the main draw card here is the combination of beaches and natural beauty. The entire Sunshine Coast is gorgeous beyond belief, with crystal seas and national parks providing the ultimate playground for lovers of the great outdoors or those wanting to experience the landscape of this treasured region. The Sunshine Coast boasts more national parks than any other area of Queensland, and given the amount of famous parks in the state, that is saying a lot!
Natural beauty combined with thriving nightlife and a range of attractions make this a fabulous choice for Schoolies. Day trip options include Underwater World, Steve Irwin’s Australia Zoo, the famous Ettamogah Pub, Aussie World and the beloved Big Pineapple. Each town has a wide range of trendy cafes, bars and restaurants, not to mention shopping, providing something for everyone on the Sunshine Coast.
