WUNYA NGULUM! (Welcome Everyone)

Welcome to the Sunshine Coast.

When it comes to what makes the Sunshine Coast so special, you’ll find the clue is in our name. We have a sunny disposition that radiates from the inside out, and when you’re on holiday here, you’ll start to feel it too.

This is what we call a Sunshine Moment – that feeling of uncontainable joy that comes when you’re in your happy place on the Sunshine Coast - and no matter what yours is, you’re guaranteed to find it here.

Our landscape is pretty special too, and is as diverse as the experiences and people who call it home.

Here you can be barefoot on the beach one minute and hiking the ancient peaks of the Glass House Mountains the next, sampling farm-fresh local produce and immersing yourself in lush green rainforest along the way.

We are nestled in nature and green at heart, with a commitment to living sustainably with nature. In fact, the Sunshine Coast is the only place in Australia where you’ll find three UNESCO Biosphere Reserves sitting side by side.

Take it all in on an eco tour, or discover how you can help restore our ecosystems and stunning habitat by reducing or removing your carbon footprint through local reforestation projects as part of the Sunshine Coast Sustainability Program.

So what are you waiting for? It’s time to find your Sunshine Moment on the Sunshine Coast!
