Hit the Road! Sunshine Coast Scenic Drives

Hit the road!  Discover more of the Sunshine Coast with a scenic drive.
The Sunshine Coast region boasts lots of opportunities to get out on the road. Drive along the coastal or mountain roads, and take in the breathtaking views.

Pack your camera and a pair of binoculars, as there are quite a few lookouts where you can stop and gaze into the distance and take some great photos.

There’s also quite a few places to stop where you will have use of picnic tables, toilets etc. So why not pack a picnic and enjoy lunch on the road. Alternatively, you’re likely to find some wonderful ‘hidden’ cafes to grab a bite to eat or a relaxing coffee.

Here’s a look at some of the routes you could take:
Maroochydore Scenic
Distance: 87km.
Drive Time: approximately two hours and15 minutes.
Start the drive by heading out of Maroochydore down Bradman Avenue and turn off at Diddilibah. From here onwards there are open roads boasting lots of amazing scenery to behold. This route will take sightseers past Kiels Mountain through Palmwoods and down the Maleny-Montville Road. Following on the road will then loop you over towards Dularcha and Ewen Maddock Dam. From here the Mooloolah valley will guide you back through Ilkle, Buderim and Kuluin returning you to Maroochydore. You can also easily adjust or shorten this route to suit you.

Sunshine Coast Coastal Strip
Distance: 55km (from Caloundra to Sunshine Beach)
Drive Time: approximately one hour.
This drive can be started from Caloundra (about 30 minutes south of Maroochydore) or adapt to suit your timeframe.
Once in Caloundra take Nicklin Way heading back north. You’ll pass along the canal estates of Kawana Waters before turning right on Brisbane Road then left at Beach Terrace to follow the roads along the beaches of Mooloolaba and Alexandra Headland. If you feel like stretching your legs you’ll find many walking tracks, or cool off with a swim at the beach before setting out again.
This road eventually turns into Duporth Ave and later Bradman Ave as it runs along the banks of the South Maroochy River. When you get to the Sunshine Motorway take it north until you can take the Marcoola exit on David Low Way. This road will take you along Marcoola’s section of coastline.
Now the coastal drive aspect really takes it up a gear as you have nothing but beach side driving ahead as you pass along Coolum Beach, Peregian Beach, Marcus Beach, Castaways Beach and Sunrise Beach, finishing up at Sunshine Beach. Bask in the ocean views to the right, as well as Noosa National Park on your left. It’s a stunning sight whichever way you look. Depending on the time of year you do the drive, be sure to pack a swimsuit, as passing by all those amazing beaches is sure to tempt you!
Now that you’re at Sunshine Beach you can turn around and head back to Maroochydore, or continue on a little further to the beautiful seaside village of Noosa Heads – which is well worth a visi!

These are just a few of the drives that await you!
