Beachside destination with a country feel

Located just one hour from Brisbane lies a sunny paradise - the Sunshine Coast. This popular holiday destination is a perfect blend of the party atmosphere of the Gold Coast mixed with the relaxed, tranquil environment of the Whitsundays. Spectacular white sand beaches, lush subtropical rainforests, great food and plenty of outdoor activities, you don’t need to look any further for a holiday destination.

Kids are instant fans of the Sunshine Coast with its expansive beaches and laid back atmosphere. Attractions such as Australia Zoo, Aussie World and UnderWater World will keep them busy. As the perfect weather lends itself to outdoor pursuits, there are a never-ending list of adventure and sports activities to fill your days including snorkelling, kayaking, kite boarding, cycling, rock climbing and much, much more!

Follow the crowds or listen to the locals?

The most popular time of year to head to the Sunshine Coast, judging by the crowds, is the Christmas/New Year period and Easter. If you ask a local though, they will tell you winter with its clear blue skies and consistent temperatures in the mid 20’s is the ideal time of year.

COVID-19 Travel Updates Across Australia State by State

Winter School Holidays in Australia

All east coast states of Australia are on holidays at the same time. ACT, QLD, NSW and Vic school holidays are from Sat 26 June to Sun 11 July.

West coast Australia (being WA and SA) is on holidays one week after the east coast states from Sat 3 July to Sun 18 July. NT is doing it's own thing, probably because it's dry season, and is on holidays from 26 June to 19 July.

To get the best deals and availability, east coasters would probably be best served travelling west for that first week and west coasters could travel east for the last week.
