Wondering what to do on the Sunshine Coast? You'll definitely be spoiled for choice; with so many things to do, Queensland's Sunshine Coast is known for sunny weather, great beaches, fun attractions and activities, and plentiful accommodation options. Whether you are staying at Noosa, Caloundra or Mooloolaba on the Sunshine Coast, you will be sure to find plenty to do outside the room of your resort or outside the camping ground.
As for what to do on the Sunshine Coast if travelling from either overseas or interstate, make the most of your holiday and spend a day at Steve Irwins famous Australia Zoo or let the wildlife float above you at Underwater World. Another great offer for visitors combines both of these attractions in the Animal-action-pass. Explore Fraser Island with a day trip or an extended stay, then visit the Sunshine Coast hinterland out in the Glasshouse Mountains. The best way to experience all the things to do on the Sunshine Coast is to hire a car, otherwise there are plenty of transfer or tour options, especially between Brisbane and the Sunshine Coast. Also, be sure to check out our Sunshine Coast itineraries page for some suggestions on how to utilise your time there!
