When in a tropical paradise, it would be a waste to be anywhere but the great outdoors. Make the most of the near-endless sunshine and idyllic weather and strap on your hiking boots for a great time outside.

Sunshine Coast’s wilderness areas make for perfect locations for getting a bit active. Here are some of our top tips for when you want to explore the area on foot.

Ride a Wave at a Sunshine Coast Surf School

A quintessentially Australian activity, surfing is the perfect way to experience some of our most rollicking waves, and to test your sense of balance at the same time.

A large number of surf schools are scattered around Sunshine Coast beaches, offering themselves up as the perfect location to strap on a board and get to learning. With the help of some local seasoned experts, you’ll be standing up on a board in no time.

Discover a Beach That Suits Your Tastes

Luckily for you, the Sunshine Coast boasts a vast selection of beaches that will tempt any tastes. If you want to take a surfing class, Noosa Main Beach and Little Cove are perfect for beginners. If you’re a seasoned pro and want to opt for more rollicking waves, Double Island Point and Old Woman Island are your best choices.

And it’s not all massive waves, either. If the kids are along for the ride, select one of the calmer beaches. Not only will you feel safer sending the kids out into stiller waters, you won’t have to battle for prime position. For a quiet beach, try Mooloolaba Spit or Kings Beach.

Take a Break in a Lush Rainforest

A little further out in the Sunshine Coast Hinterland, you’ll stumble across a bevy of beautiful waterfalls and lush rainforests that will keep you entertained for hours. The sumptuous sights are a welcome break from the hustle of the main drag, making them the perfect addition to your trip.

Try Gardners Falls, a 30-minute drive from town, for a picnic spot that’s filled with gorgeous rock formations, trees and rivers. Or venture out to Kondalilla Falls for some picturesque photo ops and rumbling waterfalls.
