The Sunshine Coast is perfect for a one day getaway from Brisbane, and a great place for an overnight stop if you're travelling up the coast. Take in our natural wonders and fabulous attractions on the Southern Sunshine Coast in this one day/one night itinerary.

Glass House Mountains

Travel north to the naturally refreshing Sunshine Coast (approximately a one hour drive from Brisbane). Arrive at Glass House Mountains Lookout and enjoy the breathtaking views across the iconic range – remnants of volcanic activity that occurred about 25–27 million years ago. Enjoy a refreshment stop at The Lookout Café in Montville.

Australia Zoo

Get up close for an animal encounter with rare, endangered and much loved Australian and exotic animals. Visit the Australia Zoo Wildlife Hospital, and take in the exciting main wildlife show in the Crocoseum.

Aussie World

Enjoy some fun on the rides at the Sunshine Coast’s most popular theme park, some souvenir shopping at the adjoining specialty shops and a delicious Aussie lunch or cold beer in The Pub at Aussie World.


Travel to the Sunshine Coast’s southern aquatic playground. Take in the unique scenery as you stroll along the Caloundra Coastal Pathway from Kings Beach to Bulcock Beach before topping off the day with fish and chips for dinner overlooking the Pumicestone Passage, or on the beach at sunset.
