There’s a lot of things you can do on the Sunshine Coast, besides playing in the water all day long and succumbing to an early night. You can slip into your most comfortable shoes and head out for an exciting night, full of dancing and a little drinking. Or, visit one of the laid-back venues where you can relax and watch the night mature gracefully.
Enjoy Some Karaoke
Popularly known as the Solbar, this award-winning establishment in Maroochydore hosts some of the best live acts on the Sunshine Coast. They have shows every Thursday and Sunday nights. They also have an epic open mic Wednesday for those people who can entertain a room full of intoxicated people. That said, you will be doing yourself an injustice by not including this joint in your itinerary.
Have Some Drinks and Dance the Night Away
Head over to the Whisky Boy near the Noosaville River to get a taste of the finest drinks in Australia. They have everything, from Australian and Japanese liquor variants to 12-year old scotch. However, you need to know and stick to your drinking limit or end up wasted in a foreign city. Better still, share that experience with a loved one.
Diving at night might not be everyone’s cup of tea, but it sure is a lot of fun. HMAS Brisbane, for example, is a dive destination which has shipwrecks and abundant fish life. Grab your fins, diving light, and wetsuit and see the untouched beauty of this underwater spot. It takes about 30 minutes to cruise from Mooloolaba to the diving site. And you need to be an open water swimmer, in considerably good shape, to take the plunge.
Satisfy Your Cliffhanger Fantasies at the Rockit Climbing Gym
If climbing obstacles sounds like something you would want to check out, then the Rockit Climbing Gym is the place to be. The joint stays open up until 9 pm, presenting the perfect opportunity to have some fun while burning some calories. They have 21 climbing walls with progressive difficulty. Plus, a couple of instructors on the floor to show newbie climbers how to stay safe.
So there you have it, the top four things to do at night on the Sunshine Coast. And yes, there are more places to see and things to do in this part of Australia, but these four happen to be the all-time crowd’s favourites.
