Sunshine Coast Activities and Programs
Ninety minutes’ drive north of Brisbane, get beachside on the Sunshine Coast where the sun shines for more than 300 days a year.
Host dinners and barbecues on the beach, horse ride along the sand, swim with humpback whales and visit farms in the Noosa Hinterland for paddock-to-plate dining and exclusive culinary tours with local producers. The Sunshine Coast is also a short scenic flight from the World Heritage listed Fraser Island, the largest sand island on Earth.
Did you know?
Spicers Retreats have two properties in the Sunshine Coast Hinterland - Clovelly Estate in Montville and Tamarind in Maleny.
Create your own surf village
Create your own exclusive surf village under a giant tipi on Noosa Beach. The tipi will be your hub for a full day including surfing lessons, stand-up paddle boarding and Noosa River jet boating for 30 to 120 guests. You’ll also enjoy chillout zones, yoga classes, massage stations, cocktail demonstrations and a customised food and beverage menu.
Wildlife encounters at Australia Zoo
Visit Australia Zoo, the 40-hectare (99 acre) wildlife park and conservation facility established by the late Steve Irwin, ‘the Crocodile Hunter’. Hand feed the kangaroos, get up close with koalas, and encounter other native animals such as wombats, possums and echidnas.
Create the ultimate souvenir
Take a Surfboard Graffiti Art class with Banana Life. Suitable for groups of 10 to 100, this hands-on session is led by local artists, who will help your team design, stencil and spray their own surfboard. When finished, the boards will be lacquered and freighted home to you.
Spend a day at Spicers Tamarind Retreat in the Hinterland
Take a scenic drive to the hinterland to experience the beautiful Spicers Tamarind Retreat at Maleny. The luxury lodge includes a multi-award-winning restaurant, The Tamarind, and also offers tailored cooking classes in their purpose-built cooking school.
Get a taste of Fraser Island
Take a private plane to the World Heritage listed Fraser Island, where you will be greeted by rangers who will guide you to exclusive parts of the island only accessible by them.
Venture into The Glass House Mountains
The Glass House Mountains are listed on the Queensland and National heritage registers as a landscape of national importance due to the significance of the area to traditional owners - the Gubbi Gubbi people. Groups can take the 3 kilometres (1.8 miles) Mount Ngungun Summit walk for 360 degree views of this spiritual land.
