The Sunshine Coast has long been a popular tourist destination, and rightly so. With more than 100km of stunning coastline, some of the world’s best beaches, and a foodie scene to rival any other, it’s no wonder travellers flock there year-round.
But there’s a lot more to the Sunshine Coast than what you might know. Sure, you’ve probably swum in the sparkling waters of Coolum or Mooloolaba, dined along Noosa’s Hastings Street, or visited the famed Eumundi Markets, but there’s a lesser-known side to the Sunshine Coast that’s equally as impressive.
With direct flights to the Sunshine Coast soon on sale with Bonza, a quick getaway to the tropical paradise has never been easier. Here's a few ideas for getting off the beaten track and discovering the hidden gems of the Sunshine Coast...
If a visit to the Sunshine Coast is all about sun, surf, and sand for you, the sleepy beach town of Moffat Beach might just be the perfect spot. Known as the Sunshine Coast’s hidden gem, Moffat Beach is nestled in a quiet corner of Caloundra and has loads on offer when it comes to accommodation, food, and the great outdoors. Its perfect point break will appeal to surfers, while the sandy inlet of Tooway Creek provides a safe and family-friendly spot for swimming or stand-up paddle boarding. Moffat Beach is also dog-friendly, so you can even bring your best furry friend!
Top tip: After a day at the beach head to Moffat Beach Brewing Co, an award-winning small brewery in a casual beachside setting.
