Food glorious food

A natural food bowl, the Sunshine Coast is fast becoming Queensland’s favourite taste destination. We boast a strong agriculture sector, internationally-acclaimed seafood, and university researchers who are playing an ever-burgeoning role in Australia’s farming future.

With this earth and sea foundation as our backbone, the Sunshine Coast offers a bounty of foodie adventures, tasty attractions and gourmet experiences. It all starts with the rich volcanic soil, sun-filled days and ideal rainfall that provide the perfect balance for more than 500 food and beverage producers that call the Sunshine Coast home.

Their fresh, delicious produce is lovingly tended and nurtured until it grows and blossoms to be showcased through the region’s award-winning restaurants, fabulous food and farmer’s markets, nationally renowned food festivals, and fun cooking schools.

Food lovers also flock to the flavour filled touring opportunities, which include exciting food trails, hinterland vineyards, and paddock-to-plate and trawler-to-table dining experiences.
