The Sunshine Coast is rich in diversity, and that is what makes it so special. Enviably positioned, the region is tucked between Brisbane and Fraser Island – a stunning haven abounding in wonders of nature, beachside culture, fresh local food, bucket list experiences and world-class events just waiting to be explored. From the majestic Glass House Mountains to Noosa and the coloured sands of Rainbow Beach, the region includes over 100 kilometres of pristine sandy beaches, surrounded by the quiet beauty of coastal and hinterland villages.
