One of the attractions of a weekend getaway in the beautiful Sunshine Coast Hinterland is the opportunity for some unique shopping experiences.  These range from admiring and choosing clothing from some beautiful boutiques owned and managed by creative designers, browsing in wonderful galleries showcasing stunning works of art, to discovering cute and quirky specialty shops for gifts and souvenirs.

Wood and glass feature strongly in the work of Hinterland artists and retail outlets offer a beautiful range of work.  Here we are spoilt for choice and both local and overseas visitors are sure to find a gift or memento that reminds them of their visit to the Hinterland.  Antique lovers and those seeking unique and special home wares will also find they have much to entertain them.  Those who shop with a social conscience will find stores that support local craftspeople and growers as well as overseas orphanages.

Anytime of the year is great for shopping in the Hinterland, and planning for seasonal purchases makes shopping a pleasure rather than a chore to be achieved to a deadline.  The local Christmas Shopping promotions are a great way to have some fun while fulfilling your list and support small independent businesses.

The Hinterland has a wealth of beautiful food available and there is fun to be had in choosing delicious sweet treats aplenty or more down-to-earth hearty fare from local dairies food producers.

There really is something for everyone and great supplies to get you through the trip!  No shopping trip is complete without a good coffee break, and the Hinterland has great coffee and cake.  Come up and try for yourself.
