Day 1

Start your day with a sunrise walk from Bulcock Beach to Kings Beach, taking in the scenic ocean views and fresh air.

Play 18 holes at Pelican Waters Golf Club in Golden Beach. This 4-star resort provides the perfect getaway retreat with breathtaking views of the heritage listed Glass House Mountains. Golf fans will appreciate that this was the first ever Greg Norman-designed course on the Sunshine Coast.

After golfing, enjoy a change of scenery and see why the Sunshine Coast Hinterland is known for its arts and crafts on the Sunshine Coast Art Gallery Trail. Artworks you'll discover on this trail include oil and watercolour paintings, and extend into bronze, sandstone and marble sculptures; porcelain, wood, photography as well as hand-blown glass, silk and textiles.

Cool down but don’t slow down after golfing with an adrenalin-pumping jet ski ride down the Pumicestone Passage with Caloundra Jet Ski.

End the day with a brew and a view at award-winning Moffatt Beach Brewing Co – just a stone’s throw from the beach!

Day 2

Stretch before a big day with some dawn yoga at Alexandra Headlands and leave feeling relaxed and invigorated.

Your next stop is Twin Waters Golf Club - a sportsperson’s dream. The world-class 18-hole, par 72 championship course was designed by five times British Open champion Peter Thomson and partner Mike Wolveridge. The stunning setting and challenging layout combine to produce an enjoyable game of golf for all players.

Refuel with high tea at Aimee Provence. Perfect for absolutely any occasion, this decadent spread features an array of ribbon sandwiches, freshly-baked scones, French macarons, cakes and tempting tarts.

It’s time to stretch the legs again and explore Buderim Forest Park which will take you to Serenity Falls. With its towering trees, meandering tracks and stunning waterfall, this sub-tropical oasis is a paradise for nature lovers and photographers alike.

Finish with sundowners matched with Mooloolaba prawns and some of the best views on the coast at The Surf Club Mooloolaba – it doesn’t get much better than that.

Day 3

Mount Coolum is an awe-inspiring volcanic dome that presides over the Sunshine Coast landscape and what better way to experience it than as the sun rises.

At 208 metres, the summit of Mount Coolum offers views to the east, as the coast stretches all the way from Double Island Point to Caloundra.

It’s golf time! Located just seven minutes north of Coolum and 12 minutes south of Noosa, the Peregian Golf Course is a highly ranked park-land style golf course. The 62-hectare course will take you on an unfolding journey through native bush, stands of eucalyptus trees and strategically situated water.

Renowned for its locally made artisan treasures, there's no other market quite like The Original Eumundi Markets. This sprawling established market is the perfect place to while away an hour or two sampling ethnic food, picking out the perfect didgeridoo or trying on funky handmade fashions.

If you haven’t filled up on samples, your next stop is a step back in time at Rick’s Garage in Palmwoods. The walls and ceiling are plastered with old school posters and classic memorabilia and out the front visitors will find the real deal – with vintage cars and bikes lining the street on any given day, all washed down with a milkshake and some of the best burgers and bands in town.

Day 4

People flock to the Noosa National Park and it is easy to see why. Turquoise water, white sand, frolicking dolphins, a native forest with koalas… these are just some of the reasons you will start your day with a stroll along the boardwalk here.

Have a change of pace and spend time – and money – exploring the boutiques and shops along Hastings St.

Only 3km from Hastings Street and Noosa's sun-drenched beaches, your next stop is the tranquil sanctuary of Noosa Springs Golf & Spa Resort for today’s round of golf. The resort boasts an 18-hole championship golf course nestled alongside Noosa National Park and the beautiful Lake Weyba.

Don’t go hungry though. Back near Hastings St and overlooking Noosa Main Beach, Bistro C offers up a winning seasonal menu, refreshing cocktails and breathtaking views. Make it your stop for a long lunch.

See Noosa from a different perspective with a sunset cruise with Noosa River and Canal Cruises. Exploring the hidden waterways while Noosa comes alive is the perfect day to end your ultimate golfing holiday.
