So you think you know the Sunshine Coast? The name itself conjures up blue skies, lazy days, lush tropical hinterland and of course, world-famous beaches – think of Noosa Main Beach and Mooloolaba Beach. But the Sunshine Coast is so much more than a place to throw a towel down and catch some sun. It boasts more than a few hidden spots and local haunts. Places away from the hustle and bustle of tourism hotspots and more suited to those looking for some peace and tranquillity. This article will be leaving the better-known areas of the Sunshine Coast and taking a romp to some of our favourite hidden towns and regions.
