  • Welcome to the Sunshine Coast Hinterland

    The beautiful Sunshine Coast Hinterland is not much more than an hour north of Brisbane and only 30 minutes from the Sunshine Coast, Queensland, Australia. With an average elevation of 450m, the cooler climate offers unique attractions in each of the different seasons.
