The Best Sunshine Coast Events To Check Out This Winter

Whale Watching

The Sunshine Coast is currently smack bang in the middle of whale watching season, making now the perfect time to take advantage of our beautiful wildlife. Head to Mooloolaba to catch a glimpse of majestic humpbacks, just off our coast. There are plenty of whale watching cruises around the area that will take you on a guided tour towards where the whales are spending the winter. If you’re after an up close and personal experience, Sunreef even allows you to swim with the whales for an extra special experience.


Culinary Road Trip

Everyone’s favourite pastime in winter has to be indulging in delicious comfort food. Our beautiful Sunshine Coast happens to be serving up plenty of unbelievable feasts and delectable dishes from coast to hinterland this winter. Head to Montville for a French inspired meal at The Long Apron, cruise up the coast for fine Japanese dining at Noosa’s Wasabi, and head inland to Yandina’s Spirit House for one of Australia’s best food experiences.
