23 Feb The Sunshine Coast Easter holiday guide
The Easter holidays are coming and whether you’re planning a vacation or a day trip, the Queensland Sunshine Coast is definitely a place to consider.
Going to the beach
For many people, the beach is the main attraction at the Sunshine Coast. They can take a refreshing dip in the sparkling blue water, or relax in the sun warmed sand. For the kids the beach at the Sunshine Coast is hours of fun. They can splash around in the water or build sandcastles with their friends.
The Easter holidays might be the perfect opportunity to introduce the kids to the Caloundra coastal walk. They can walk and sightsee for 25 kilometers, while you put your camera to work as you pass some of the most breathtaking beaches. The Sunshine Beach also offers you historical scenes such as the Military Jetty dating back to World War II and the Kings Beach Bathing Pavilion erected in 1937.
On the off chance that the kids get bored during their Easter holiday, take them to one of the many Sunshine Coast amusement parks such as Under Water World, Aussie World, Top Shots, Bellingham Maze, or the Zoo. For an afternoon with a difference, visit the Sunshine Castle at Bli Bli, a macabre place that hosts a torture chamber in the dungeon.
Spending the Easter holidays at the Sunshine Coast might be the perfect opportunity to expose the kids to a bit of culture. Visit the towns of Noosa, Maleny and Montville to enjoy various venues, home studios and galleries. At any time, but especially during the Easter holidays, the Sunshine Coast is home to a number of musicians, dancers and other artists and performers.
If you’re an animal lover, take advantage of the Easter holidays to visit the Sunshine Coast to say hi to a variety of wildlife. There are the ever popular kangaroos, the adorable koalas, a multitude of colourful birds, as well as goannas and possums. In the water you will delight at the sight of whales, dolphins, all kinds of reef fish and sea turtles.
Hungry and thirsty after a day of fun? The Easter holidays are not only perfect to expose the kids to fun and culture, but also to introduce them to the many restaurants, markets and cafes along the Sunshine Coast. If restaurants are not in the budget, you can feast on a delicious meal, an organic coffee or a refreshing beer in one of the many surf clubs. For those who prefer to cook at home, there are local farmers markets that offer fresh produce and the catch of the day in seafood.
If you haven’t visited the Sunshine Coast yet, the Easter holidays are the perfect opportunity to do so. The fun and attractions it has to offer will have you coming back again and again.
