Family Holiday Rentals are the best choice

The Sunshine Coast is an extremely popular tourist hot-spot for families who are keen to get away from the fast paced stress of their everyday life. The numerous national parks, tourist attractions and golf courses make this location in Queensland an extremely popular family holiday destination.

Mango Hill Farm

A working organic farm in the rolling green countryside not far from Caloundra has all the right ingredients for the perfect short break.

Cruiz away with tranquil tour

Tucked away from the hustle and bustle of the usual Sunshine Coast visitor activities is the meandering Mooloolah River where a delightful tour takes a behind-the-scenes look at a relatively undiscovered nature-filled environment.

The Sunshine Coast Everglades

The famous Queensland beaches have been dazzling us for days, so, for a complete change, we're heading up the Noosa river for a day of something different - the cool, dark, natural beauty of the Everglades.

The car-swallowing beach

We're coming up to the car-eating beach, the driver said as the Toyota Landcruiser zoomed along the wide thoroughfare. I looked on ahead but could only see clear sand.

Animal Hospital Encounters

If you think Outback Wildlife Rescue makes good TV, you’ll love a unique behind-the-scenes look inside the new Australia Zoo Wildlife Warriors - Australian Wildlife Hospital located next to Australia Zoo at Beerwah

Romantic Getaway at Lake Weyba

How romantic. Sunrise on the beach and sunset by the lake in a secluded and private location for couples. Lake Weyba Cottages are the location, and for those not in the know, they're close to Peregian Beach and just fifteen minutes from Noosa's Hastings Street. Set on 20 acres of parkland, on the shores of the lake, the cottages are individually decorated and furnished by local craftspeople.

Gliding through the Everglades

It's hard to believe this deeply peaceful place could ever have been a scene of terror and loneliness, but Fig Tree Point, tucked into a corner of Lake Cootharaba on the edge of the Noosa Everglades was the spot where one of Australia's most famous shipwreck survivors, Eliza Fraser, was finally rescued from captivity while being exhibited by her captors at a corroborree.

Valley Rattler Steam Train

This historic 40 km train journey starts in Gympie, crossing the Mary River then negotiating many curves, gentle hills and bridges to pass through the small country townships of Dagun, Amamoor and Kandanga to Imbil.

Eco Tourism in the Maroochy Mangroves

As we left the civilised world behind among the pleasant, pastel holiday homes on the riverfront at Maroochydore, a quiet Queensland coastal town, we thought a Cruise Maroochy Eco-Tour sounded like a lovely, lazy way to spend a day - cruising the river, letting the greenery slide by, perhaps spotting a bird or two, but soon found ourselves on an eye-opening odyssey up the river.

Perry's Restaurant in Maleny

Giant beech trees once grew where today cattle graze and tourists walk. The Sunshine Coast hinterland village of Maleny has long been a farming community, although dairy farming is now no longer the main income earner for the district. And those beech trees? Well, they have all but disappeared.

Wittacork Dairy Cottages

What could be better for a city slicker than a relaxing day or two in the country? Leave Brisbane and drive for just over an hour, taking the Sunshine Coast turn to Maleny.

Sunshine Coast 4WD Tours

Travelling along the open beach, our driver Bert suddenly braked and the four-wheel drive slid to a stop on the hard sand. Bert had spotted a beach fisherman standing in the shallows, straining under a very bent rod.

The Book Farm - 'Growing' books on the Sunshine Coast

A south-east Queensland farm that grows books and inspires children to interpret their feelings about the natural environment has been recognised nationally for its contribution to nature-based tourism.
