What To Do In The Sunshine Coast
The Three Secret Places On The Sunshine Coast That Only The Locals Know About
Secret Waterfall: You’ll find Artists’ Cascades five kilometres into Conondale National Park near Kenilworth which makes for a 10km round trip.
This journey therefore will take you approximately 4 hours return to complete. Six days if you don’t take a compass. If that doesn’t put you off, then you’ll be rewarded with a swim in one of the best waterfall and swimming spot combos on the Sunshine Coast.
You’ll be taking many pics – guaranteed
Four Must-Dos When On The Sunshine Coast
Eumundi Markets :
We remember visiting this quirky arts and crafts market over twenty years ago – and – if you weren’t wearing Eumundi Marketstie-dye or had dreadlocks – you kinda felt out of place.
Fast forward to today and the Eumundi Markets have grown incredibly but the ‘Yes it’s patchouli, join my drum circle and let’s live off the grid’ vibe remains.
There are now over 1000 stalls, fabulous food choices, extraordinary live music and you are bound to fall in love with an original artwork here or find an unusual hand-made jewellery item that you just have to have.
The markets are open until around 2pm every Wednesday and Saturday – regardless of the weather.
The Maroochydore to Mapleton Drive:
One of the best things about the Sunshine Coast is that, when you’ve had enough of the beach and the surf, you can point your car west and within 15 minutes you are driving in the Hinterland and along winding country roads.
Have an in room massage or day spa treatment:
Ripple is one of many services that offer massage and spa treatments. The difference is they come to you.
Lazily go through their massage and beauty services menu and pick something delicious that you know you’re going to love and that you well-deserve.
They give massages in some wonderful and diverse locations.
From high-up in a Penthouse overlooking the Pacific Ocean, to romantic mountain cabins in Montville to a sunny, quiet back porch in the suburbs surrounded by the scent of night-blooming Jasmine.
Ashbern Strawberry Farm:
Eat your own strawberries! Sorry no. Pick. Pick your own strawberries. Ashbern Farm is open to the Strawberry Farm Sunshine Coast public five days a week during the strawberry season which runs from October to May.
Admission is free and you only pay for the strawberries you pick. Make a day of it and stay for lunch too. On the menu at the Farm’s Cafe you’ll find the usual cafe fare as well as Devonshire Teas and their signature home-made ice-cream.
The Farm offers tours as well and there are picnic areas and play areas for the children too.
