4 Reasons to Live on the Sunshine Coast

Just one hour north of Brisbane is Queensland’s Sunshine Coast, possibly one of Australia’s best stretches of beaches. This stretch of golden coastline and rolling hinterland probably needs no introduction as one of Australia’s best getaways for pleasure seekers and for the people that call this region home, they know very well how lucky they are, and what a good thing they are onto.

The Sunshine Coast is accessible to so many in Australia, and for those considering a lifestyle change for the better, here are 4 solid reasons to move to Australia’s lifestyle capital.


The Beaches. This is at number one for good reason. The Sunshine coast’s beaches are unspoiled. From Noosa, Mooloolaba, Maroochydore, Coolum and the amazing stretch from Kawana to Caloundra, the wide beaches across the Sunshine Coast make them perfect for all sorts of activities and central to enjoying the Sunshine Coast way of life.


The Cafes and Restaurants. Go straight from your early morning surf, right to the beachfront cafes dotted along the esplanade. By night enjoy the lively action at the surf clubs, the restaurants and the bars offering al fresco dining in an irresistible climate. The laid-back nightlife is nothing like that Gold Coast – and most of the residents wouldn’t have it any other way.


The Attractions – From Australia Zoo, to the massive Eumundi Markets and the Noosa National park, and Kondalilla falls in the hinterland, there is so much to for locals to immerse themselves in. With a new waterpark to rival Wet ‘n’ Wild on the way, summer on the Sunshine Coast is sorted!


Increasing Investment Potential – The Sunshine Coast is on the back of a property renaissance, with millions of dollars of infrastructure development after consistent growth. A new rail link serving the coast in the works and the Sunshine Coast Hospital at Kawana as well as new roads and cycling paths. The Sunshine Coast property market is also currently enjoying long overdue growth after a difficult period, making it the right time for buyers to start looking at the fantastic new homes and house and land packages of offer. There are many affordable communities to build.
