    Just coast – fun, sun and more on the Sunshine Coast

    Grab your beach balls and sunglasses, and get ready for the Sunshine Coast! A major summer vacation destination on the Coral Sea, the Sunshine Coast is known for its sprawling upscale resorts, sandy beaches and gnarly surfing spots (their words). Further inland, you'll find a bounty of scenic, mountainous highlands, many of which are located within the area's numerous national parks. Whether you're looking for a high-energy adventure or a chilled-out day at the beach, Sunshine Coast vacation rentals will put you within a stone's throw of some of Australia's most stunning scenery.

    Surf's up! Catch a wave (or 2) on the Sunshine Coast

    Looking to hang 10? Look no further – a number of Sunshine Coast vacation rentals offer easy access to some of the area's best surfing beaches. The scenic Double Island Point, with its historic 19th-century lighthouse, is a popular surf destination. For a more low-key waterfront experience, head to Noosa Main Beach, a wide stretch of coastline whose calm waters and fine sand make it a big hit with visitors. After that, it's time for a snorkelling excursion, whale-watching tour or jetski adventure, or you can hit the hiking trails in 1 of the area's numerous national parks.

    Wild, wild life – the Sunshine Coast's fantastic fauna

    Animal lovers of all ages will find something to love about Australia Zoo, once owned by the legendary "Crocodile Hunter", Steve Irwin. Here, you can get up close with over 1,000 animals on 40 sprawling, leafy hectares of space. And if that's not enough, you can head to Sea Life Sunshine Coast, a 1-stop marine life shop where you'll find live animal shows, a wildlife sanctuary and an aquarium. Feeling outdoorsy? At Noosa National Park, you'll find walking and hiking paths, as well as a wide array of plant and animal life.

    Getting warmer – sunny seasons on the Sunshine Coast

    Like most of the region, the Sunshine Coast has a humid subtropical climate, with warm-to-hot summers, cooler winters and plenty of rainfall all year round. Summertime highs regularly average 29 degrees in January and February, though temperatures can sometimes climb to 40 and above. Winters are milder, with average temps ranging from 10 to 22 degrees between June and August. Though rain is common throughout the year, the months between December and June are generally the wettest. The area gets hopping in the summertime, and you'll usually find the lowest prices on Sunshine Coast vacation rentals during the cooler winter months.

    The highs and lows of the Sunshine Coast's landscape

    Along the Pacific Ocean's Coral Sea, the Sunshine Coast is moderately built-up – go ahead, call it suburban – where laid-back residential areas are interspersed with modern resorts, sandy beaches and untamed highlands further inland. Noosa National Park, 1 of the region's many preserved wilderness areas, features diverse ecosystems, from coastal headlands to arid mountains. It's also home to local wildlife species like koalas, possums and bandicoots, as well as countless types of local and migratory birds; during their annual migration, whales can also be seen off the coast.
