Dreaming of getting away from it all (namely lockdowns!) and taking a holiday with the family? Once it’s safe to travel, consider the Sunshine Coast in Queensland for a fun-filled vacay.
Alexandra Headland Beach
There are plenty of top beaches in Sunshine Coast to choose from and one of them is at Alexandra Headlands. Hotel and apartment accommodation is easy to find nearby and the patrolled beach offers an idyllic slice of coastal bliss. It’s popular for surfing too and even features an outdoor skate park.
SEA LIFE Sunshine Coast Aquarium
Located in Mooloolaba, the SEA LIFE Sunshine Coast Aquarium provides an unforgettable journey to the deep. Around a six-minute drive from Oaks Sunshine Coast Seaforth Resort, it showcases marine species from around the world; highlights include a tidal touch pool for a hands-on experience and an ocean tunnel to view sharks and rays.
Amongst the most famous attractions in Queensland, the Australia Zoo is a firm family favourite. Children will love the chance to pet koalas and hand-feed kangaroos, while one can see animals like Sumatran tigers, elephants, giraffes and rhinos too. There are also live shows featuring birds of prey, crocodiles, otters and more.
Noosa National Park
Those who love the great outdoors can explore the vast Noosa National Park that covers rainforest areas, beaches, heathlands and dunes. One of the best things to do in Sunshine Coast is to hike the trails at the Noosa Headland section which offers amazing views and the chance to see everything from koalas to dolphins!
