Holidaymakers love to take cheap flights to the Sunshine Coast for destinations such as Noosa, Maroochydore, Mooloolaba and Caloundra. The 60 km idyllic stretch of coast starts an hour north of Brisbane and ends at Cooloola, the jumping off point for Fraser Island. The Sunshine Coast offers great natural beauty and is well set up for tourism with plenty of resort style accommodation both in the lush hinterland and in the seaside towns all along the coastline. Noosa offers a more luxurious seaside escape, while the laid-back town of Caloundra is perfect for outdoor activities such as: surfing, kayaking and fishing. The peak tourist time, when the majority of sun-seekers arrive on flights to the Sunshine Coast, is the Christmas period up until the third week of January. This is a popular destination for families during school holidays and long weekends such as Easter, so you’ll need to book flights and accommodation well in advance.
