Categories: Blog, Sunshine Coast Attractions - Tags: ,

If you want a fun, relaxing but heart-pounding adventure while on holidays, you’ve come to the right place! As a matter of fact, forget relaxation! You can do that at another vacation! This is the vacation for adventurers. If you want an adventure like no other, come to the Sunshine Coast.

Here are some of the exciting things you can find here:


For those with a “need for speed,” try the go kart racing with all the excitement that comes with it. Hairpin turns and curves will keep you alert and feeling in control on the international 1.2km standard race track, which holds up to 50 karts at a time. Kids can ride too, with a smaller version (50 metre track) featuring 7-horse power karts. Located at 2310 Steve Irwin Way in Landsborough. Just a 40 minute drive south of Coolum Beach.


For a little calmer adventure (but still exciting), try the quad bike tours! Ride through the beautiful Woondum National Park and explore the great outdoors while you visit with friends and family. Located on the Sunshine Coast’s hinterland, it’s a real adventure for all. You need a driver’s license to ride the quad bikes but training is available.


For the true adventurer/daredevil, how about some skydiving? The views of the Sunshine Coast is absolutely amazing from above.

Jump out of a plane and live a little! Or explore one of the other skydiving adventures like the helicopter jump or other stunts. Amaze your friends and come back with some great stories-if you live to tell about it. (Just kidding!) Located at 4 Kittyhawk Close, 12km south of the Coolum resort.


Okay, let’s slow down the pace just a bit. Hop on a horse and take in picturesque mountain lookouts and views. Whether you’re a beginner or an experienced rider, you can enjoy an afternoon on horseback, or stay for a 2-5 day tour. Located at 84 Amamoor Creek Road, in Amamoor-an hour northwest of your Coolum resort area, it’s worth the trip.


The Harley-Davidson Tours will make your trip memorable and give you an adventure you won’t soon forget. Feel the power as you cruise down the highway from Noosa to Caloundra. Available every day of the week. Jackets and helmets are available. You’ll be picked up in style from your Coolum accommodations and taken on a wild adventure along the Sunshine Coast.

There are other adventures to be had in the Sunshine Coast area too, all located within driving distance from the Coolum resort. Try the Aerobatics Flight stunt plane, or go on a heart-stopping river rapids trip to top it all off!

As you can see, we’re no retirement villa at the Beach Retreat Coolum on the Sunshine Coast. So if you want a vacation to get your adrenalin pumping, come and see our Coolum accommodation options. We’re not your grandma’s holiday.
