The Sunshine Coast is located in Queensland, Australia. It begins 90 kilometres north-east of Brisbane and stretches for 60 kilometres from Caloundra in the south to Noosa Heads in the north.
This area is dominated by beaches, and holiday resorts for beach-goers. Development occurred much later than at the more famous Gold Coast, which is located to the south-east of Brisbane. In contrast to the Gold Coast's long line of hi-rise that shadow the beach, the Sunshine Coast is predominately low-rise, and still contains some small beach-side towns that are relatively unaffected by the increase in tourism over the last few decades.
Things to do while at the Sunshine Coast include surfing, swimming, fishing, lying on the beach, getting sunburnt, eating fish and chips and hamburgers from greasy milk bars, smoking dope, and relaxing. If you go to Noosa Heads you can also add eating at nice restaurants and cafes.
