Sunshine Coast Caloundra.

In early days before white settlement The Sunshine Coast area was the traditional homeland of The Undumbi People. In fact their land stretched as far south as The Brisbane River. The Glass House Mountains in the hinterland area were of historical significance to these people who in the late 1800's were driven from their lands by the early white settlers. Descendants of these people are now populating the Kuranda district in Far North Queensland and Palm Island off the coast near Townsville.

Further north we arrive at Maroochydore, the business centre of The Sunshine Coast. Another popular beach resort with the added attraction of the Maroochy River Cruise. Mooloolaba is the main tourist centre with The Esplanade providing lots of resort type shops. Plenty of good restaurants in the area and good night-time entertainment for the young. The harbour area has several restaurants, and close by is the Under Water World Complex. Walk to The Bluff at Alexander Headland and enjoy the views over The Maroochy River to Mudjimba Island and west to Mount Coolum.
Our last stop on the coastal strip is Noosa Heads. Here the main thoroughfare is Hastings St. Shops, galleries and restaurants abound in this area. The Noosa developement is all low-rise which contrasts with the high-rise style of The Gold Coast in the south. A Noosa River Cruise is a pleasant experience. Just a short walk from here you will be in the Noosa National Park. Spectacular scenic views from this place are never forgotten.
