The Sunshine Coast is that place you’d rather be.

The Glasshouse Mountains hold stories of family and floods passed on by the Kabi Kabi people. The beaches rival those of the Gold Coast and offer beautiful swimming spots beside cruisy beach villages. It is an agricultural hub for tropical fruits like pineapples and avocadoes, and a happening tourist district thanks to attractions like Australia Zoo and Underwater World. From ‘best-of’ style day trips to extensive tours travelling to the beaches, rainforests and everything in between, Second Nature offers a variety of tour options for Special Interest Groups.
