Imagine being on holiday every day. It’s not as out of reach as you may think as you may think: introducing the Sunshine Coast, the place to be for an idyllic lifestyle of relaxation, outdoor adventure and beautiful scenery. Hotondo Homes looks at why now is a great time to build a home or invest in a house and land package along the Sunshine Coast.
The Sunshine Coast is located in Queensland’s south east, approximately 100 kilometres north from the state’s capital of Brisbane, and just over a two-hour drive from the Gold Coast. Whilst slightly smaller than its coastal counterparts, the Sunshine Coast boasts a vibrant central business district, sprawling nature reserves and world-class beaches. Its central location means that you can live close to all the action, while still feeling relaxed and soaking in all this seaside city has to offer.
The recent completion of the new Maroochydore city centre has put the Sunshine Coast on the map as one of the country’s best performing regional economies, as declared by the State’s Premier. With a 15 to 20 year plan in place, “The Bright City” aims to deliver more commercial and retail spaces, new residential apartments, and act as a hub for technology and innovation. Now is a great time to get in on the action, as the Sunshine Coast rapidly moves towards increasing job opportunities and creating a liveable epicentre with a thriving economy.
Transport and accessibility
It’s easy to get around on the Sunshine Coast, with roads that make it easy to access all areas. Public transport via bus is safe, affordable and a breeze to navigate. The Sunshine Coast Airport (MCY) is conveniently located close to the city centre, connecting you to many capital cities throughout Australia, so you won’t be too far away from your loved ones.
Sun, sand and surf
Did you know that the Sunshine Coast is the gateway to some of the best surfing beaches in Australia? If you’re looking to catch a wave, follow the coast north from Maroochydore. You’ll be spoilt for choice when you live here: Coolum, Peregian and the world-famous Noosa beaches are all just a stone’s throw away. Or, head south to the quaint township of Caloundra, where you’ll be met with a vibrant watersports scene and waves to cater to all abilities.
Activities for the whole family
Surfing not your thing? The Sunshine Coast is renowned for being a family-friendly destination, so you’ll never run out of activities to keep the kids (and big kids!) entertained on weekends. Get active and take a stroll through nature at Glass House Mountains National Park, Kondalilla Falls or Noosa National Park. Soak in a bit of history with a ride on the Mary Valley Rattler steam train, or climb the heritage-listed Caloundra Lighthouses. Get up close with nature at the world-class Australia Zoo, and for the thrill-seekers, the rides at Aussie World are sure to get your heart racing.
