Stretching from Caloundra in the south along 60kms of coastline that includes some of Queensland's best beaches, the Sunshine Coast is an ideal escape for families, couples or anyone wanting to steal a few days in the sun.
There are so many beaches to choose from but the favourite destinations are the popular family beaches of Caloundra, the vivacious resort town of Mooloolaba, beachside haunts such as Alexandra Headland, Maroochydore, Coolum, Peregian and Sunshine Beach and of course the stylish enclaves of Noosa.
Nearby Noosaville offers a picturesque alternative on the banks of the river.
