20 Things to Do on the Sunshine Coast

As you will probably recall from Friday’s post, I’ve been away for A Long Weekend on the Sunshine Coast. We stayed in a rental in Maroochydore for three days, six of us in all. It had a balcony overlooking the river; very nice…

Take a stroll around the Eumundi Market checking out the trinkets…

Sunshine Coast HinterlandBut if you want a really relaxing and chilled out weekend, then maybe you should just sit in a beach chair under the shade of a small tree and watch as the others expend all the energy.

    Hi Bob
    Looks like you had a good weekend on the Sunshine Coast.
    I live in the hinterland and I tell you that you would want to tell your readers that there is a lot more to the sunshine coast than the beach and attractions. The emergence of the beach areas into the hinterland where it is cooler and a lot greener does give one a sense of completeness and serenity. We have a European styled studio as part of our Flaxton property that we called “Springfalls” that we let out for visitors through Stayz and Wimdu. Great place the Hinterland as a Retreat to Nature.
    The views you highlighted is the icing on the cake!
    regards
    Otto
    Thanks for pushing Australia as a great place to be.

      Yes, we did have a good weekend, thanks Otto.

      I’m sure I have mentioned many times elsewhere how great the hinterlands are in the Sunshine Coast, they offer a great alternative to the beach. What I love the most is that you can be on the beach, and then 20 minutes later you can be up in the hills looking down at the sea from a distance.

      Completeness and serenity, for sure. It’s a wonderful part of this fantastic country.

      Cheers, Bob
