Looking for holiday destinations near Brisbane? The Sunshine Coast is just over an hour’s drive away.

The Sunshine Coast is essentially one big playground, so it’s a fantastic place to visit during the school holidays. Whether you’re travelling with boisterous teenagers or toddlers, there are plenty of activities to keep kids of all ages entertained. You could enrol your youngsters in surf school, take them on an easy bushwalk through Noosa National Park, or let them run amok at a beachside park while you sit back and soak up the ocean views.
