Love our blue and green backyard? We do too. That’s why we’ve made it easy to travel more sustainably and contribute to local reforestation projects. Join us to make a difference!

Here on the Sunshine Coast, we are nestled in nature and green at heart. In fact, we’re the only destination in Australia where three UNESCO Biosphere Reserves sit side by side. What does that mean exactly? In simple terms – we’re passionate about contributing towards a more sustainable future for our destination. That’s why we’ve partnered with Reforest to make calculating and removing carbon emissions from your trip to the Sunshine Coast easy.

And the best part? Carbon removal is through local Sunshine Coast reforestation projects that help restore ecosystems 🐨🍃

To get started, estimate your carbon footprint using the trip CO2 calculator and discover ways to make your trip more sustainable in partnership with our local tourism industry.

Check out the program dashboard to see the positive contributions our industry and visitors are making to the Sunshine Coast in real time, including how many trees have been planted, how much carbon removed and how much habitat restored for local wildlife.

Join us and help keep the Sunshine Coast clean and green for generations to come.
