When you’re in the Sunshine Coast why not find some fun places to enjoy the hotspots that makes Queensland unique. Away from the city with many scenic spots, the Sunshine Coast is much more relaxed than the Gold Coast and for good reason! Whether its taking advantage of the surf and beaches or hiking one of the scenic mountains or coastal trails, you could even find yourself strawberry picking PYO style!

~ Noosa Fairy Pools ~
Where to find the Noosa Fairy Pools! One of the more newer editions to the much loved Noosa Sunshine Coast is the Noosa Fairy Pools. Found just past Dolphin Point and Granite Bay take a step away from the path past the bench and make your way towards the rockpool that has become quickly popular. Make sure you check the tide and go at the right time as this will make the most of your experience as you can jump into the pool.
~ Hell’s Gate Noosa ~
One of my favourite coastal walks to date is Hell’s Gate Noosa where you can fully enjoy the coastal views and stop by the many beaches. The weather in Queensland especially towards the Sunshine Coast is always perfect for a reason to get outdoors all year round with many locals taking advantage of their neighbourhood.
~ Mt. Coolum Sunshine Coast~
An easy to moderate hike up Mt Coolum leads to an expansive view over the Sunshine Coast. You can easily make it to the top within 30-45 minutes and great for all fitness levels. If I lived on the sunshine coast I would love to be able to do this active hike at Mt Coolum and even The Glass House Mountains.
~ Glass House Mountains Sunshine Coast~
One of the best things about growing up in Queensland are the natural scenic landscapes to explore, from beaches to mountain hikes to waterfalls and creeks. Queensland really is your outdoor backyard with all the weekend activities you can grow up exploring with your friends!
~ Strawberry Fields ~
A fun day trip during the right season is Strawberry picking! Freshly picked strawberries somehow do taste more fresh and so much more fun picking them yourself! This is a great stop if you’re coming or going towards the Sunshine Coast to PYO strawberries!
