Sunshine Coast day tours

Great Sandy National Park Poona Lake

What are the best activities on the Sunshine Coast to do by car

If you’re planning a Noosa self drive holiday the best activities on the Sunshine Coast to do by car are not as far away as you think. Within the Shire of Noosa there are plenty of destinations, but add Maroochydore and the hinterland to your plans and you’ve got some good times ahead of you. Take in the hippy towns with their arts, crafts and heritage attractions, (we’re thinking the 3 Ms here: Maleny, Montville and Mapleton), there’s lots of national parks with their own charms to discover. Swim in a waterhole at the Kondalilla Waterfalls, explore the prehistoric rainforest at the Mary Cairncross Scenic Reserve. There’s 55 hectares of subtropical rainforest overlooking the Glass House Mountains that once covered the Blackall Range. Take your time to enjoy the spectacular scenery looking towards the Glasshouse Mountains and from the Glasshouse Mountains looking out towards the coast. Pencil in Maleny for this view. No reservations required.

Don’t forget the various wineries and craft breweries along the way, not to mention the cheese factory in Kenilworth and the roadside fruit stalls. Mmm, tropical Queensland fruit. There’s none sweeter.

Head north of Noosa for a trip to Hervey Bay and Fraser Island. From July to November is the season of the humpback whale migration. Observe them from land or secure your seat on a whale spotting boat.
