Noosa — 6 nights

Known for its "green" development and north-facing beach, Noosa is a natural getaway.
Your day by day itinerary now includes Go Ride A Wave Noosa - Surf Lessons. Mary Ann Steam Locomotive and Everglades will appeal to history buffs. Your cultural itinerary includes sights like Sunshine Castle and Woodworks Museum & Interpretive Centre. Change things up with a short trip to Marcoola Beach in Marcoola (about 38 minutes away). And it doesn't end there: cast your line with Noosa River Fishing Safaris, tour the pleasant surroundings at Noosa Main Beach, trek along Mount Cooroora, and explore the wealth of natural beauty at Tewantin National Park.

Beaches · Zoos · Gardens
Beaches, sun-drenched streets, and a relaxed ambience are the defining elements of Sunshine Coast, a region just north of Brisbane. Having grown rapidly in the 1960s and 1970s, Sunshine Coast became a popular destination for surfers in particular and has now grown into a well-managed city focused on "green" economic development.
