Top 5 things to do on a Winter’s Day on the Sunshine Coast

From endless coastlines, hikes and lookouts, to the coasts best food and wine, the Sunshine Coast has it all! We get how hard it can be to fit in all the glorious sights and attractions. Here’s our guide for the top 5 things do on a Winter’s day on the Sunshine Coast.

1. PICK-YOUR-OWN! At the Strawberry Fields

The Carmichael family has been pumping out strawberry sweetness since the 1980’s, and there’s even more to come this winter! With the picking season open from June to November, it’s the perfect winters day treat. And if you fancy something sweet while you’re there, be sure to visit their Café and splurge on more berry sweetness, like their homemade strawberry ice cream or pancakes – so berry good!

2. The BIG Pineapple

Just like all great regions, a big statue of a fruit or animal is a must. And lucky for us we have the Big Pineapple! The heritage listed Big Pineapple is full of fun for the whole family. Learn about the history of Pineapple farming, from start to factory, whilst making your way up the Big Pineapple (the actual statue) to enjoy the view from top!

As a part of the Big Pineapple family, the Wildlife HQ Zoo offers visitors an intimate showcase of native and exotic animals. Plus, if you want to get up close and personal with these animals why not book an animal encounter?

3. A Day at Montville

Heading west from the Sunshine Coast ocean, you’ll find the beautiful hinterland town of Montville. A world away from our salty sea air, Montville is a small town with great food and beautiful hinterland views.

If it’s sights you are after, the Kondalilla Falls walk is a must. Or if it’s food, wine and chocolate, take a walk down the town’s main street – you will be in indulgence heaven.

4. Noosa Farmers Market

The Noosa Farmers Market is a winning market for the finest and freshest locally-grown produce. Not only is the crop top notch, but you get to meet the local farmers and producers behind the harvest!

Located around the gum trees of the Noosa Australian Football Club, on Weyba Road, the Noosa Farmers Market is filled with stalls from produce and skincare, to music, creamy cheese and amazing coffee. Happening every Sunday of the year, be sure to mark it on your calendar.

5. Wonderland in Maleny

The Maleny Botanic Gardens and Bird World is a place like no other. Positioned on a 14-acre wonderland, you’ll enjoy the spectacular views of layered gardens, waterfalls, lakes and picnic spots. The Bird Worlds “Walk Through Bird Aviary” is an experience like no other, where you can set your eyes on some of the most colourful and beautiful birds in the world!

Then, if you fancy a bite to eat Monica’s Café is the place to go. Accommodating to dairy-free, gluten-free, vegans and vegetarians and everyone else, Monica’s fresh seasonal menu is amazing! Don’t go past the Pane Pomodoro – it’s a town favourite.
