Spring has hit the coast with a burst of weather and colour, kindling our appetites for adventure beyond the boundaries of a four walled sanctuary from the biting mid-year frost. Unwind and re-discover the expansive, wonderful shores of Australia’s pristine coast line without leaving the comforts of “civilisation” behind.
The outdoors in spring are a rich abundance of wildlife and fresh flowers and plants, , family activities, water sports and everything in-between. Don’t take our word for it, head out and start uncovering hot-spots of your own, starting with these tried and tested Sunshine Coast treasures:
Camping at Boreen Point
Boreen Point fringes the picturesque banks of Lake Cootharaba, complete with soft, sandy beaches stretching out to surround the camping grounds. A favourite with those in-the-know, Boreen Point is a fantastic place to fish, swim and sail, offering boredom prone kids (and adults) the creature comforts of home (skate parks, basketball courts and tennis greens), immersing the senses in a natural wonderland of trigger fish, native plants and curious critters.
Horse Around with Equathon
Imagine galloping along the north shores of Noosa, chasing waves a top one of the beautiful horses from the Noosa stud. Equathon are passionate about delivering a wonderful experience to every level of rider, even complete beginners! Swing into the saddle and take a two hour tour along the wind-swept, white sand beaches and leave swimming for another day less out of the ordinary. You will be back again and again!
Big Kart Track Circuit
I feel the need, the need for……….SPEED! Speed down to the Big Kart Track and test friends and family on the longest go-kart track in Australia, measuring in at a whopping 1.4km and capable of accommodating the pole position dreams of over forty-five racers. Phew. That’s a lot of stats. After taking hot-lap after hot-lap, cool off with a cold drink at the Pit-Stop Café and watch your mates whizz past, trying to beat your time.
Relax, Unwind and Stretch
Luxuriate on the ripples of the river and paddle your way slowly to the shores of Mudjimba Island; take a moment to absorb the clean air, the lack of human life and the sweet sounds of…nothing. Kayaking along the keys and streams of the Sunshine Coast is a past time that attracts thousands of locals and visitors every year, granting a stimulating workout to the senses while stretching those tired, under-used winter limbs.
These are just some of the things you could be doing next weekend; for more inspiration, find something your fancy within the pages of My Weekly Preview and draw up a bucket list from their Sunshine Coast Top 50. What are you doing this Saturday?
