On the Sunshine Coast, health and wellness is not simply about meditation podcasts and green juices. It’s about fuelling the body with local produce straight from the earth (such as from The Falls Farm), taking long walks along Caloundra’s Moffat Beach as the sun dips below the horizon, and finding your inner peace at the tranquil Maleny Botanic Gardens.
Enjoy ultimate rejuvenation at the Sofitel Noosa Pacific Resort’s Aqua Day Spa, featuring intimate treatment suites, ginger tea and fruit platters, or relax in the soothing Salt Caves at Mooloolaba. There’s also the option of taking part in a Bali-inspired yoga shala on the leafy grounds of Shambhala Farm, or venturing to the beach (Alexandra Headland or Mudjimba) for a relaxing session with Zen Beach Yoga.
If you’re looking for a touch of culture, head over and explore the Chenrezig Institute in Eudlo. This Buddhist Temple was established in 1974, and was among the first Tibetan Buddhist centres in the Western World. Surrounded by lush rainforest, you’ll find mindful yoga and meditation sessions, a vegetarian café, library, art studio and memorial garden.
Some of our favourite events on the Sunshine Coast include The Wellness Festival and the Conscious Life Holistic Wellbeing Festival. Between the two, you can expect to enjoy everything from live music, seminars, hands-on therapies and more.
