Australia’s Sunshine Coast, located along the Pacific Ocean in Queensland, north of Brisbane, is aptly named for its year round sunny climate. The area also offers a myriad of things to see and do, from historic sites to outdoor adventures to enjoying the many wonders of the nearby ocean.
Many visitors to the Sunshine Coast are unaware of the diversity of the area or how much there really is to see and do in this great region, but luckily we have some solutions to help you see more of the Sunshine Coast…..
Sunshine Coast Tours
One of the best ways to enjoy the Sunshine Coast’s many sights is to take an organised tour. Planned by people who live right in the area, such tours save you the time and effort of making all of the detailed arrangements yourself, driving to and from the sights and perhaps missing the best things this part of Australia has to offer, just because you didn’t know about them. Below is just a sampling of tours offered on Australia’s Sunshine Coast:
1. Sunshine Coast Winery Tour.
The last decade has brought a proliferation of wineries to the Sunshine Coast. This afternoon tour stops at two area wineries plus Castle Glen Liquors, to learn about and sample the wine and spirits of the region.
2. Fraser Island Tours.
Fraser Island, located just off the coast of Queensland, is a World Heritage Site. It is also the world’s largest sand island, at 120 kilometres by 24 kilometres. Tours to this interesting isle take the full day and include a guided rain forest walk, opportunities to explore the island’s Seventy Five Mile Beach and a seaside Aussie BBQ lunch.
3. Montville Hinterland and Rainforest Tour.
The quirky town of Montville is the Sunshine Coast’s version of a typical English village. The historic, mountain town offers a country market with local produce and food samples as well as a diverse collection of art galleries and craft shops. The drive up to Montville offers dramatic vistas of the coast below. This tour also includes a guided tour of Mary Cairncross Scenic Reserve, a 52-hectacre park that is home to many species of birds and wildlife.
If you’re planning on visiting the Sunshine Coast this season, explore the area by taking one or more Sunshine Coast tours. You’ll save the stress and hassle of planning all of the details yourself and you may just find some gems you didn’t even know existed.
