Whether you’re seeking glittering beaches, thrilling action and adventure experiences, delicious dining or top-notch shopping, our list of best things to do on the Sunshine Coast has it all. This tourist haven in Australia stretches from the super-chill beach town of Caloundra through the resorts and national parks of Noosa and up to the postcard-perfect Great Sandy National Park. Adventurous travellers come here to swim in the wild with whales and go hiking in rainforests—but there’s no need to work up a sweat if you’re here to wind down. You can also explore the region’s food trails, hunt for treasures at charming markets or enjoy dinner with an ocean view.
