Six and more of the best on the Sunshine Coast for Easter!

March 19, 2021 Visit Queensland No Comments Email Email

Living on the amazing Sunshine Coast, I can’t help but let you guys no so fortunate know about some of the amazing things to do on the Sunny Coast and with Easter just around the corner when better than now to discover them, so here you go!

We have Hot Cross Buns – with a twist

For many, there is nothing more delicious than a warm Hot Cross Bun slathered with a generous amount of butter, but have you ever tried buns, with beer?

So, this Easter, take your love for Hot Cross Buns to the next level at Terella Brewing with a glass of their Hot Cross Bun Golden Ale.

The brew uses a dozen real caramel hot cross buns to make this Australian-style bitter, giving the beer notes of spicy cinnamon and glazed bread which pair perfectly with its toasted malt bill. If that isn’t enough to get you excited, they also have a White Choc Stout whose coffee aroma is complemented by hints of vanilla and chocolate – yum.

Create your own chocolate trail

Recreate the magic of Easter morning by following your own chocolate trail on the Sunshine Coast. Start your day on Caloundra’s Bulcock Street, where Sunshine Chocolatier uses local produce to create delicious sweets.

Next, head to Mooloolaba’s Fudgees on the Wharf where you’ll not only find chocolate but fudge and sweets.

Then, following the winding roads up the picturesque Blackall Range – a treat in itself – to stop in to the iconic Chocolate Country shop at Montville, and Maleny Chocolate Co.

Finish you day at Noosa Chocolate Factory whose high concentration of real cocoa in their chocolates makes it that much more delicious.

Take part in the ultimate Easter egg hunt

This Easter, NightQuarter on the Sunshine Coast is going all out for a two-day Easter Eggstravaganza, kicking off on Good Friday with a Community Festival  featuring The Easter Bunny, live music and chocolate desserts.

On Easter Saturday the fun continues with an Easter stage show, chocolate egg hunt for the kids, Easter cocktails for the adults, a dance party and magic show.

Australian Body Art Festival

From the coast to the Hinterland there’s plenty to experience on the Sunshine Coast this Easter, and the Australian Body Art Festival is certainly one of the most unique.

Held from 9-11 April in Cooroy, this festival of colour celebrates body painting and wearable art, with this year’s theme is ‘Time Travel’ and entry is free, with market stalls and entertainment also on offer.

The Ma & Pa Bendall Surf Competition

If surfing is more your thing, the Ma & Pa Bendall Surf Competition at Moffat Beach is a must visit, with the annual event held from 2-4 April and celebrates the history of local surfing legends – Ma and Pa Bendall.

 Let the kids run wild

Kids high on sugar and ready to let off some steam? There’s plenty to keep the family entertained this Easter, including Next Level at Sunshine Plaza, with this newly opened high-ropes course taking you high above Cornmeal Creek for an aerial adventure to remember.

Paradise Seaplanes 

If you want to take things even higher, Paradise Seaplanes offer scenic tours of the Sunshine Coast. Taking off from Maroochy River, their tours fly from  the Glass House Mountains in the south to Noosa in the north.

Oggy E-Scooters 

If you’re looking to explore the coastal pathways, Oggy E-Scooters offers electric scooter hire around Mooloolaba, making it a fast – and fun – way to explore the region’s coastline.

Unwind – for real

Once you find yourself suitably stuffed full of chocolate, beer and buns, the Sunshine Coast is the perfect place to unwind. From the uncrowded beaches to the sub-tropical Hinterland there’s plenty to explore, including the Glass House Mountains, Mary Cairncross Scenic Reserve and Maleny Botanic Gardens & Bird World. For some real hidden gems, visit the Maroochy Wetlands Sanctuary, enjoy the calm waters of Currimundi Lake or take a hike to the summit of Mount Ninderry – you can even bring your dog!
