Welcome to the Sunshine Coast - one of Australia's prime tourist destinations.

When it comes to what makes the Sunshine Coast so special, you’ll find the clue is in our name.

We have a sunny disposition that radiates from the inside out, and it’s reflected in everything we do, from our laidback lifestyle to our warm hospitality.

And it’s not just us saying that. The Sunshine Coast is officially the ‘Most Loved Destination in the World’ according to the Tourism Index Sentiment, with travellers from across the globe following their hearts to our slice of Queensland paradise.

Our landscape is pretty special too and is as diverse as the experiences and people who call it home.

Here you can be barefoot on the beach one minute and hiking the ancient peaks of the Glass House Mountains the next, sampling farm-fresh local produce and immersing yourself in verdant rainforest along the way.

We are nestled in nature and green at heart, with a commitment to living sustainably with nature.
