Sunset picnic at Little Cove, Noosa Heads

It’s the season of love, and before you buy those sad looking flowers from the servo yet again, we’ve got something special organised for you. Home to incredible natural beauty, a vibing foodie scene and epic experiences, the Sunshine Coast is the perfect place to celebrate Valentine’s Day with your love this year.

Not sure where to start? Just call us cupid because we’ve rounded up the best things to do on the Sunshine Coast this Valentine’s Day. Take note!

Go Glamping With Pitch Luxury Camping

Embrace the great outdoors without compromising on style or romance, thanks to Pitch Luxury Camping. Setting up your dream glamping holiday at just about any campsite or private property on the Sunshine Coast, you can sit around a fire, gazing at the Milky Way, before retreating to your luxurious five-metre bell tent, complete with all the creature comforts. They don’t come better than this when hunting for the best romantic things to do on the Sunshine Coast, so you can stop the search.

Have A Romantic Picnic In Maleny

With picturesque surroundings, the sweet country town of Maleny does most of the heavy lifting when it comes to romance. But if you really want to treat your love (you do), then go that extra mile and organise a drool-worthy picnic hamper from Maleny Food Co. Using only the freshest, local produce, these picnic hampers are packed with love—and all the good stuff. Think: pastries, frittatas, olives, local and international cheese and cured meats. Plus for an extra $25 they’ll throw in a wicker picnic basket and blanket. Job done!

Sip On Wine While You Create Art Together

Channel Demi Moore and Patrick Swayze in Ghost with a class at Syndicate Creative. Located in Maroochydore, you and your love can get behind the (clay) wheel for a private throwing session that will see you mould clay into works of art—or a fruit bowl. You’ll be guided by an instructor as you let your creativity flow. More of a painter? Frida’s Sip n Paint Mooloolaba is throwing a special Valentine’s Day workshop for all the lovers out there. And the best bit? You can BYO bubbles and a cheese board to really dial up the romance.

Spend A Night In The Mountains

Blow your date away with a stay at this luxury B&B, where you’ll take in stunning vistas of the Glass House Mountains through the floor-to-ceiling glass walls of your cottage. Romance is in the eye of the beholder, but with a freestanding double spa bath, fire place and a sky full of stars beyond your deck, we’re pretty sure Glass On Glasshouse has got the wow-factor covered for even the toughest nut.

Go On A Hot Air Balloon Ride

Take your love to new heights with a Sunshine Coast hot air balloon ride. Create memories that will last a lifetime as you and your love float across the region, taking in the natural beauty and stunning views of the hinterland to the coastline. Sunshine Coast Ballooning will pick you up from Cooroy, treating you to a champagne toast and delicious breakfast before taking you on your truly bucket list-worthy date. Trust us, you’ll absolutely win Valentine’s Day with this thoughtful escape.

Do A Craft Beer Tour

The Sunshine Coast is Australia’s Craft Beer Capital so it would be rude not to take your significant other into one of them for a tipple or two. Kick off the celebrations a day early with a visit to Brouhaha Sunshine Coast where the beer will be flowing as well as tasty food trucks and live tunes. Or for laid back coastal vibes, head to 10 Toes Brewery in Alexandra Headland, to check out their open-plan brewhouse and tasting room where the frothies are cold and the food trucks are plentiful. Or if your love is a real beer nerd, treat them to a brewery tour at Land & Sea Brewery. They run every Saturday (so you’ll also score points for being an early bird) and comes with a craft beer and a fine spirits tasting paddle.
