The Sunshine Coast has everything you could want in a holiday destination. Pristine beaches and stunning natural wonders, exciting attractions and experiences, world class events, a relaxed beach culture and award-winning restaurants, cafes and food producers.

Explore our regions and discover a wide range of accommodation options from 4.5 star resorts, perfectly located close to some of Australia’s best beaches, to luxury hinterland cottages, where you can relax, listen to native wildlife and enjoy fresh paddock-to-plate dining experiences.

Caloundra

When you holiday in Caloundra, the laid-back atmosphere and the playful sounds of your family enjoying the sunshine will echo in your memory forever. The stunning coastal paths and well-maintained boardwalks allow daily life to unfold in a haze of sand, scooter-happy trails, grassy picnic spots and family football or cricket matches - and it all takes place to the constant soundtrack of surf in the background.
