Surfing, hiking, shopping, dining and animal encounters – the Sunshine Coast has got it all! Located just north of Brisbane, the Sunshine Coast is home to a slew of wildly popular attractions where you can spend a fun-filled day, including the internationally renowned Australia Zoo as well as SEA LIFE Sunshine Coast in Mooloolaba and the delicious Ginger Factory in Yandina.

You can also explore beautiful towns like Maleny and Montville (make sure you try the local fudge), pick up a few souvenirs at the Eumundi Markets, take a stroll along Hastings Street (a must-do for lovers of food and fashion), hit the beach on horseback, or go bushwalking in the world-class Noosa National Park and be rewarded with stunning views of the Noosa Headlands.

How to get around the Sunshine Coast

The Sunshine Coast covers a large area and encompasses a number of scenic suburbs. As a result, our buses will drop you at a number of stops throughout the Sunshine Coast, including Mooloolaba; Maroochydore; Noosa and Cooroy.

Once you arrive at your chosen stop, you’ll soon see exactly why it’s called the Sunshine Coast – the sunny subtropical climate ensures that this part of the world is blessed with great weather all year ‘round, making it a pleasant experience to walk or cycle to local attractions. There are bike paths all over the Sunshine Coast, especially in Noosa, Maroochydore, Alexandra Headland and Mooloolaba.

That said, with a sprawling 60km (37mi) coastline, as well as the beautiful Sunshine Coast Hinterland nestled inland, there are plenty of places to visit on the Sunshine Coast, and it won’t always be possible to walk or cycle to all of them!
