Here are 4 fun full-day activities for you and your family to enjoy on the spectacular Sunshine Coast.
Explore Maleny and Montville
The picturesque towns of Maleny and Montville lend themselves perfectly to a quiet day out with the family. The roads are both beautiful and fun to drive, and once you arrive at your destination you will have a great range of activities on offer. Explore the markets, try one of Maleny’s most famous gelati, sample sumptuous local gourmet fare or spend some time unwinding at one of the many cafés and restaurants. Continue on your drive to see some of the most beautiful scenery on the Sunshine Coast and stop to take in the breathtaking views at one of the many lookouts.
Maroochy River Relaxation
Whether you want to enjoy a family BBQ on the banks or take a scenic cruise on the river itself, the Maroochy River is a great place to spend the day with the family. There are plenty of opportunities to sight see, play games on the banks, try a spot of fishing or simply take in the scenery as you enjoy a fun day in the sun with your family.
For the adventurous family, taking the walk to climb Mount Cooroora in Pomona is an absolute must. This is a climb which will take several hours for those who are relatively fit yet new to mountain climbing, so it is best to leave nice and early in the morning before it gets too hot. The challenge of the walk is well worth the effort, with absolutely stunning 360 degree views from the summit. After you have made your way back down to the bottom, why not treat the family to a hearty meal at the local Pomona pub afterwards. After lunch, spend some time exploring the town for a truly well rounded day out.
Unwind in Scenic Caloundra
Caloundra is a beautiful destination which offers everything from stylish shopping and delicious dining to pristine beaches and fun cycle tracks. Why not start the day with a stroll along the beautiful boardwalk, then head to a café for lunch on the foreshore or along Bulcock Street. Once your food has settled, spend the day swimming and soaking up the sun on Kings Beach for an unforgettable day of relaxed family fun.
There’s no denying that the Sunshine Coast offers a unique and unbeatable diversity that makes for a simply splendid day out. From spending a quietly relaxing day with the family exploring the Maroochy River to an adventurous hike in Pomona, there’s something for every family to enjoy.
