Sunshine Coast: Gallery


Come and experience Queensland's Top Tourism Town.

That's right, Caloundra was named by Tourism Australia as one of the three top tourism towns in the nation!

At the southern end of the Sunshine Coast, it is a favourite coastal conference location less than an hour’s drive from Brisbane.


Caloundra is also the site of nationally renowned and awarded street art, the Sunshine Coast’s smart hub and experiences popular with over 50s, making it the perfect location for the Art of Attraction Tourism Summit.


A few “must do” activities around the Sunshine Coast:

  • Go wild for a day at Australia Zoo.

  • Take in the Original Eumundi Markets, the largest in Australia.

  • Ride a vintage-style ferry, paddle a kayak or jump on board an amphibious vehicle to see endangered marine life.

  • Head to Caloundra's spectacular boardwalk to enjoy breath-taking ocean and beach views.

  • Check out the street art hub of Nambour and explore Caloundra's innovative activations.

  • Visit the iconic Glass House Mountains, the food bowl of southern Queensland.

We are working hard to secure some sweet stay longer, play harder deals with special accommodation offers that you will be able to book directly. Stay tuned - more on this is coming soon.
