If you’re looking for a sophisticated night out with a great view along the river in the city then Eagle Street Pier is your destination! Located in the heart of the city this is one of the reasons Brisbane is well known and loved for being a walking city, to be able to enjoy the city and not be overwhelmed with the hustle and bustle of traffic and commuters.

Places to Play | Sunshine Coast
~ Noosa ~
~ 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.
~ Mount Tamborine ~
Mount Tambourine is a beautiful scenic escape from the city with plenty of activities to drive to. Whether it’s driving to a scenic lookout to Rotary Lookout or the Glow Worm Caves in Mount Tamborine, there’s a little something for everyone all-year round. If you’re looking for an adrenaline filled activity, the Tree Top challenge is a fun activity with the family also.
