The naturally refreshing Sunshine Coast…

The Sunshine Coast is rich in diversity, and that is what makes it so special. Enviably positioned, the region is tucked between Brisbane and Fraser Island – a stunning haven abounding in wonders of nature, beachside culture, fresh local food, bucket list experiences and world-class events just waiting to be explored. From the majestic Glass House Mountains to Noosa and the coloured sands of Rainbow Beach, the region includes over 100 kilometres of pristine sandy beaches, surrounded by the quiet beauty of coastal and hinterland villages.

Name your favourite spot to visit on the Sunshine Coast and why?

Mooloolaba and Coolum, and of-course Nambour.

Nambour may have a bad image to some locals here in the Sunshine Coast, however it is not to me. I’ve lived here since I arrived, and I absolutely love the vintage-feels of the town! And mostly, the rent here is very affordable. I actually live where everything I need is just a walking-distance away!

Mooloolaba and Alex Heads - I love how nostalgic Mooloolaba is. I usually go there for a jog or for a quick dip in the ocean. I have my favourite restaurants and coffee shops within the Esplanade.

Coolum is another beautiful town in Sunshine Coast, that even a photo or a video of the beach there doesn’t justify the beauty of Coolum.
