Retail goldmine


From handcrafted, one-of-a-kind trinkets to high-end luxury goods, who could pass up a dose of Sunshine Coast style retail therapy?

Step off the sand and onto boutique-lined Hastings Street or beachside Mooloolaba – both offer items of beautiful design. Or wander the leafy boulevard of mountaintop Montville to discover more than 40 unusual, original shops.

Weekends see more than 20 markets pop-up across the region, including Australia’s largest “make it, bake it, grow it, sew it” markets at Eumundi, the prefect place to find unique, locally produced items.
The array of handmade garments, original artworks, artisan furniture, home wares, jewellery and gourmet indulgences makes the Sunshine Coast a veritable goldmine for delegates looking for a special memento to take home.

No shopping venture would be complete without a rest at a sunny sidewalk café, shaded restaurant, or market-side stall to rejuvenate and reinvigorate the senses. The Sunshine Coast boasts more than 400 restaurants and dozens of food entrepreneurs offering delicious market stall treats.
