Showcasing the talents of the local artisans and crafts folk, Eumundi markets are a great place to visit over the weekend. The whole town comes alive when the markets are on, so expect anything from Spanish paella to camel rides, homemade soaps to hand painted portraits – you name it and its probably here. Come hungry as there is plenty of good local food on offer! Where better to learn to surf than on the beautiful beaches of the Sunshine Coast? Surfing is a way of life up here, so you know that your teachers are passionate about the sport and are keen to pass the excitement on to you! Choose from complete beginner to clinics to improve your skills, but come prepared to get wet and have a lot of fun!

The Sunshine Coast is renowned for its reliable whale watching spots, with Southern Humpbacks the most commonly seen as they migrate from July to November each year. Enjoy lunch and drinks on board the whale watching vessel as you cruise the coastline, while learning about the whales’ natural environment and habits. Be amazed at the sheer size of these mighty creatures, how gentle they seem as glide past your boat, and how they seem to defy gravity as they launch themselves into the air! Check out all the many Sunshine Coast attractions on offer.
