Sunshine Coast Accommodation Bookings
Once upon a time (in fact not all that long ago) the Sunshine Coast was a secret holiday spot for Brisbane residents who wanted to enjoy quiet weekends away at the beach without the glitz and shabby glamour of the Gold Coast. A lot has changed since those halcyon days and the Sunshine Coast is now one of Australia's favourite getaway locations for romantic weekends, family holidays and surf safaris.
The region is still much quieter and more peaceful than the Gold Coast (it's still possible to wander around Noosa National Park on a sunny Sunday afternoon without seeing another soul), but once you head out for dinner at a Sunshine Coast restaurant or for a spot of shopping in your favourite boutique, you'll appreciate the fact that the Sunshine Coast has truly come of age as a world-class holiday destination.
