Australia and the Sunshine Coast is a ‘Must Visit’ destination.

The Sunshine Coast, on Australia’s east coast, is just an hour north of Brisbane and an hour and a half direct flight from Sydney.
The Sunshine Coast is a destination where you’ll be totally spoiled.  Enjoy amazing weather (over 300 days of Sunshine per year), see Aussie animals like kangaroos and cuddly Koalas, walk in rainforests and see waterfalls and natural attractions, swim in the crystal clean ocean, walk along white beaches, visit fun attractions, eat delicious food, all with the comforts of a big city.

Feel the sand between your toes at the pristine beaches, watch the stars at night, visit the markets in the Hinterland, learn to surf, take a jet boat ride, sky dive, go fishing, bushwalk, swim or even do Australia’s only swimming with whales experience. The Sunshine Coast is truly a wonderful all-round travel destination that blends together natural beauty with plenty of nature, wildlife, shopping, sporting and adventure activities.

With our beautiful coastal beaches, scenic hinterland, national parks, resorts, restaurants and attractions, the Sunshine coast is an amazing place to visit, study and live.

The region is also home to famous amusement theme parks like Australia Zoo, Aussie World, and Sea Life. Enjoy the Sunshine Coast regions, from the naturally stylish Noosa, to the family fun of Coolum, Maroochydore, Mooloolaba and Caloundra, to the cool and creative hinterland villages of Maleny, Montville and Mapleton.
