Ahh, spring! With the long, chilly winter behind us, spring is the season where the flowers are blooming, the days are longer, lighter and warmer and the feel-good factor is at an all-time high.

As you shed the winter woollies and come out of hibernation with a spring in your step, we’ve put together a hotlist of things to do on the Sunshine Coast to make the most of this sensational season.

Outdoor Adventure

If swimming around the iconic Mudjimba Island isn’t your thing, admire it from the shore as you explore the unspoiled hidden coastal gem of Mudjimba. Local tip: head down at sunrise for pastel skies.

Walk off the winter indulgence and experience the beauty of The Glass House Mountains with a hike around the base of Mount Tibrogargan with The Hike Collective. Don’t stress if you’re still a little unfit after winter hibernation – this adventure is perfect for beginners.

Grab your fellow adrenalin junkies for some fast-paced thrills on Noosa Oceanrider’s Adventure Tour. Keep an eye out for cheeky dolphins and sea turtles, too.

Pack the car, rally your favourite people, and head to Rainbow Beach for the ultimate weekend of camping, 4WDing, surfing and generally living your best outdoor lives.

Summer beach bods are made in spring so why not hit the Noosa National Park Coastal Walk – you can even have a cheeky dip at one of the sandy bays along the way.

Chase waterfalls – and some Insta-worthy moments - in the leafy Sunshine Coast Hinterland.

Eat & Drink

The Sunshine Coast is Australia’s Craft Beer Capital, so it would be rude not to enjoy a tipple with the affable locals at some of our world-class boutique breweries after a day in the spring sunshine. Cheers to that!

Like the world-class beaches, food is one of the big drawcards in this slice of paradise. Join a farm to fork tour and go behind the scenes of local farms, breweries, wineries and distilleries for the ultimate foodie fix. 

Get back to nature and lunch with wildlife at Australia’s Zoo’s new Crocodile Hunter Lodge restaurant: Warrior Restaurant & Bar, the brainchild of the late and much-loved wildlife warrior himself, Steve Irwin.

‘Tis the season for alfresco long table lunches so perfect your culinary skills with a cooking class at Caloundra’s Red Hot Chili Pepper Cooking School.

Relax and reset ahead of the festive summer months at the uber cool new luxury day spa, Tank Bathhouse. Bliss.

After a day of exploring the hinterland, rest your head in serious style at Imperial Hotel Boutique Accommodation. This relaxing escape pays homage to the laid-back and creative Eumundi spirit, and each room is a showcase of local art for sale.
