With direct flights to the Sunshine Coast with Air New Zealand, you can be lapping up a balmy sub-tropical escape in the sunshine before lunch time! And with average winter temperatures of 22ºC by day, you certainly won’t need your woollies to appreciate our great outdoors. Surrounded by beaches, lakes, national parks and lush hinterland, there’s no doubt a Sunshine Coast and Noosa holiday will leave you feeling revitalised and refreshed.
There’s no shortage of space with pristine swimming beaches stretching over 100km from Noosa to Caloundra. Catch your perfect wave, spot a whale – or swim with one – and explore the unforgettable wilderness that is the Noosa Everglades by boat or kayak.
The Sunshine Coast boasts more than 740 restaurants, from the relaxed sophistication of Hastings St’s beachfront dining, to the eclectic vibe and late-night music of Ocean St and Mooloolaba Wharf, and the indulgent tranquillity of the Hinterland, there is something for every mood and palate.
From coastal day trips to bespoke foodie tours, road trips are a great way to discover the hidden gems of the Sunshine Coast.
If slowing down to relax and unwind with someone special is more to your liking, then boy do we deliver in spades! Take a casual coastal walk, grab a picnic by the beach, meander through the majestic sub-tropical rainforest of the Hinterland – the options for a slower paced getaway are endless!
Air New Zealand now flies direct between Auckland and Sunshine Coast year round, with three services per week until October (Monday, Wednesday and Saturday), and twice-weekly from November (Monday & Saturday). Arriving into Sunshine Coast Airport before lunchtime, spend more time on your holiday, and less time in transit.
