Explore amazing mountain biking trails in the Glass House Mountains
It may come as a surprise that our favourite place on the Sunshine Coast isn’t one of the many beautiful white sandy beaches, it’s the Glass House Mountains.
Located just south of Caloundra, this mountain range is so beautiful that it’s listed as a landscape of national significance on the National Heritage Register.
Needless to say, camping adventures on the Sunshine Coast aren’t complete without a trip to see them. Not only do they offer amazing views from the hinterland to the coastline, but there are heaps of awesome mountain biking trails to sample.
Grab a mountain bike in the Glass House Mountains and hit the trails. There are tracks for all skill levels that wind through fragrant pines and ancient rainforests whilst also offering fantastic views of the coast.
Kayak the sheltered waterway of Currimundi Lake
Another adventure popular amongst campers on the Sunshine Coast is kayaking Currimundi Lake.
Sheltered with calm waters that make it incredibly serene, Currimundi Lake offers a kayak route that runs for 6 kilometres through bush and urban areas.
Of course, not everyone wants to travel with the hassle of a kayak. Fortunately, you can hire a variety of kayaks locally and paddle down the slice of paradise that is Currimundi Lake with friends or family.
If Lake Currimundi isn’t to your liking, there’s also the fabulous Maroochy River Trail.
Paddleboard the turquoise waters of Cotton Tree Beach
There are lots of secrets to uncover when it comes to camping adventures on the Sunshine Coast, but paddleboarding is one of the best.
Situated just north of the surf break of Alexandra Headland, Cotton Tree Beach is quite simply bliss for paddleboarders. Due to the sheltered mouth of the Maroochy River, Cotton Tree offers a gentle paddleboarding experience that’s perfect for adventure lovers.
Throw in myriad beachside cafes, charming fishing nooks and cosy restaurants and it’s clear that Cotton Tree Beach is a must-visit destination.
Surf world-class pointbreaks in Noosa
We can’t talk about salty adventures on the Sunshine Coast without mentioning Noosa and its world-famous pointbreaks.
Known as a surfing mecca in this part of the world, Noosa was the go-to spot for surfers back in the 60s and 70s. These days you’re more likely to see luxury SUVs than a Kombi. However, it still retains plenty of the soul that made it so iconic.
Treat yourself and hire a longboard or shortboard to experience some of the longest peeling waves in the land down under. From Noosa’s National Park to Boiling Pot, Granite and Tea Tree Bays, there’s plenty of pointbreaks to choose from.
