29 Aug 2019

Elite netballers and Sunshine Coast Lightning champs, Laura Langman and Steph Wood, love their home here on the Sunshine Coast.

Take a trip around the coast with the netball stars as they show off the best spots for your next visit.

Hit up Eumundi Markets

With over 600 stalls setting up beneath the heritage-listed fig trees in the historic town centre of Eumundi twice a week, the Original Eumundi Markets are your one-stop-shop. Discover creative designs and artworks, unique gifts, artisan provisions, coastal fashions, skincare and hand crafted furniture – not to mention an almost endless supply of food options.

Enjoy lunch at The Spirit House Restaurant

Wander into the tranquil oasis that is Spirit House Restaurant in Yandina and be enchanted by the jade lagoon before sitting down to devour a South-East Asian-inspired meal. You could be forgiven for thinking you were in Thailand or Bali. Pungent scents of chilli and coconut curry will tease the tastebuds with everything from bite-sized starters to substantial mains and all things in between the menu encouraging you to taste a variety of dishes in one visit. It is not surprising that this is one restaurant that books out regularly.    

Tackle the TreeTop Challenge

Are you daring? Do you love to get your adrenaline pumping? Then, get ready to push your fears to the maximum at the TreeTop Challenge on the Sunshine Coast. Located at The Big Pineapple, there are five unique courses, starting off 'easy' and working up to 'heart-pumping extremes.' Don’t look down though, this is home to the highest zipline in Australia!

Soak up some sun at Kawana Beach

Secluded beaches, untouched sand and hidden parks await in Kawana. From Point Cartwright in the north to Currimundi Lake in the south, Kawana Beach at nine kilometres long is one of the Sunshine Coast’s longest stretches of sand. With ample access points down the coastline, you’re guaranteed to find your own untouched piece of paradise.

Tantalise your tastebuds at Your Mates Brewery

Back from the beach in Warana, Your Mates Brewing Company has opened their very own brewhouse and it is well worth a visit. Larry (Australian pale ale) and Macca (lager) are your best buddies on a sunny day, but they’re not the only ones looking to hang out. With 12 different beers on tap, there is something for every taste.

Aside from the beer on offer, the menu at Your Mates Brewhouse is worth a mention. There are beer bites, which are available all day, every day, and includes favourites such as beer sticks, pork puff crackling and onion rings—the perfect companion to any pint.
