28 Sep 4 reasons to visit the Sunshine Coast this Christmas
It’s that time of the year that we start thinking about planning and booking the Christmas holiday before everything gets too expensive, or you miss out on accommodation altogether.
And when it comes to deciding where to spend your Christmas, quite often it’s hard to get everyone to agree on where to go.
The last thing you want is to go somewhere you’d like to go, only to have the kids complaining they are ‘bored’ or want to go home.
You also don’t want somewhere that is affordable enough that won’t see you taking on a second job just to pay for it!
Well, one of the most popular destinations for the ideal Christmas break would have to be the Sunshine Coast on the Coast on Queensland’s south east coast.
The Sunshine Coast is not as crowded!
The Sunshine Coast offers some of the best beaches along the Australian coastline, but yet relatively less crowded than many other beachside tourist mecas such as the Gold Coast, Byron Bay or Sydney’s beaches, which means if you love the beach then there is more beach for you to enjoy to yourself!
The perfect year round weather.
The Sunshine Coast also offers an almost year round perfect climate, with an average summer day temperature of around 26 degrees celcius, and offering plenty of Sunshine! After all, this idyllic tourist region is named after the amount of Sunshine it receives, so chances are you’re in for some great weather.
But the Sunshine Coast isn’t just about it’s perfect coastline of safe beaches, most patrolled by lifesavers throughout the year and definitely over the Christmas holidays.
The breathtaking Sunshine Coast Hinterland.
The Sunshine Coast also offer some of the most scenic hinterland regions that offer amazing views extending along the Coast, from Fraser Island down to Bribie island, and inland to the famous Glasshouse Mountains.
Just a little over 30 minutes drive from the beautiful beaches, and you are welcomed by the fresh country air and seabreezes of the hinterland townships such as Maleny, Montville and Mapleton, where you’ll find these quaint ‘village-style’ townships a nice relaxing pace for you to enjoy a great lunch, some shopping at the plentiful giftshops that line the streets, admire the handywork by the Coast’s local artists in one of many galleries that dot the hinterland, or just enjoy the views as you travel through the countryside.
A visit to Mary Cairncross Park, Kondalilla Falls or the Maleny Falls is something that should be on every visitors list for young and old in Summer, offering some great natural walks and swimming holes that the whole family will enjoy.
The kids will love the theme parks and attractions!
If you’re looking to give the kids a holiday full of excitement, the Sunshine Coast offers some of the best tourist attractions and theme parks in Queensland, if not Australia!
When you stay at Clubb Coolum resort, you can easily get on the highway and head down to some of the most popular attractions such as Australia Zoo, the Big Kart Track, Aussie World or the Ettamogah Pub, or head down to Mooloolaba and check out Underwater World, one of Australia’s largest underwater walk through aquariums, where you can get up close to marine life such as seals, sharks and giant rays.
A family holiday on the Sunshine Coast is bound to keep everybody well entertained that you’ll have trouble getting the children to want to go home!
