                 Noosa
                 Whatever your idea of the perfect holiday is, chances are Noosa is it. While its centre is a sophisticated resort town bursting with alfresco restaurants, cafés and stylish
                 boutiques – namely on Hastings Street – it is also a mecca for families and couples looking for a quiet break. Noosa Heads buzzes day and night, popular for its surf
                 beach, shopping and dining options. Nearby Noosaville is a world away, located on the serene Noosa River. Noosa National Park and the Noosa Everglades are magical
                 natural buffers surrounding the region, perfecting the diverse holiday playground that is Noosa.

                 Coolum to Mooloolaba
                 It’s all about the ocean here, so whether you choose to surf, fish, swim or just walk along beautiful white sandy beaches, the beaches of Coolum to Mooloolaba are an
                 aquatic paradise for everyone to enjoy.
                 Coolum and Marcoola are a great base for anyone looking to relax by the beach. Maroochydore serves up great shopping and accommodation options with the beach as
                 a backdrop. Alexandra Headland is anchored by its famous surf club and offers some great natural viewing platforms that make every sunset special.
                 Families love Mooloolaba for its safe beach, vibrant esplanade packed with shops and cafés. Enjoy a delicious meal at the Mooloolaba Surf Club, home to some of the
                 best views on the Sunshine Coast. Fancy some fresh fish? Head down to the wharf where fishing trawlers dock to give you the freshest seafood you’ve ever had!

                 Caloundra and Surrounds
                 Could this be the ultimate family beach holiday destination? Sheltered bays make for great still-water swimming. Then there’s the series of rocky coves just made for
                 fishing, or roaring surf beaches for the more adventurous. Skydive, surf, windsurf or do absolutely nothing at all – Caloundra’s got a bit of everything going on. As a
                 holiday base, you’ll never be bored in Caloundra. Hit the road to experience the animals at Australia Zoo or enjoy the rides at Aussie World. Kawana Waters is the ideal
                 spot for fishing and surfing, as it boasts one of the longest stretches of beaches on the coast.

                 The Hinterland
                 There’s something incredibly honest about the coastal hinterland. Perhaps it’s the people – local artists and their galleries, tea room hosts and farmers – all of whom
                 seem to thrive in this lush countryside. Meet them by taking a drive through the pretty villages of Maleny, Montville and Mapleton. Visit galleries, purchase locally made
                 arts and crafts, or do the food and wine trail to experience the gourmet delights of the region.
