There’s always something new to experience on every visit to Sunshine Coast. Whether you are looking to indulge in water activities or have some inland fun, this destination has go it all. After all these thrilling adventures, you can unwind in the food trails and beer halls that overlook the gorgeous white-sand beach.
Swimming with Humpback Whales
There’s no better place to get up-close and personal with humpbacks than the warm waters of Sunshine Coast. It takes about 10 minutes to get to the whale’s playground, with a typical tour lasting about four hours. And you might even swim with the wild whales when the conditions are right. However, the best time to go for this tour is during the winter months when the gentle giants are migrating.
Go Hiking at Mt. Coolum
If you are strapped for cash or looking for an adventure off the water, climbing Mt. Coolum might be the thing for you. For the best experience, tackle this beast in time for the spectacular sunrise view from the top. And it will literally cost you nothing – except for the fuel you will burn to get to the mountain.
Go Thrift Shopping
The water activities on the Sunshine Coast are fun and all, but you will miss a considerable chunk of the excitement if you skip thrift shopping. Start your shopping spree at the OP Shop Kideney Support Center and then head to Hospice Community Shop and Vinnies. If you still have time and money to spend after that, work your way to Lifeline and Ol’savos.
After all that shopping, chances are that you will be starving. Head over to Mooloolaba Surf Cub to have a taste of the local cuisines and a cold beer or two while enjoying one of the best ocean views on the Sunshine Coast.
