The Sunshine Coast of Australia

Being a first time visitor in the sunshine coast of Australia, I wasn’t really sure what is in store and was about to change my mind and head in another direction. I was however glad I stayed as this was one of the best vacations I have ever had since there was so much to do and see and I will defiantly go back and also recommend the place to anyone who wants to soak in the sun, walk on the beach and have loads of fun.

To begin my research, I surfed the net endlessly learning the best spots to learn to really surf on the big red continent. Though I found lots of great resources, I’d have to say one of the most useful sites I used was Australia holidays by Travelbag. Upon arriving, I can definitely confirm that they don’t exaggerate when they say the scenery that the coast has to offer is simply out of this world. The beaches and clear blue waters present endless opportunities of having utmost fun.

Outback adventures

This allowed me to marvel at the glories of the majesty Carnarvon gorge that has a variety of interesting features. I took a guided tour that included bush tours to take in the spectacular scenery as well as fresh, clean and crisp air that makes you forget about all the sorrows of the world. It took me a week to savor all the amazing look outs and I still could not get enough.

without any complications. I managed to make a few great friends who were into the sport thus I can say that this is also a great place for socialization.

National parks

Thanks to the unique hinterland and lush dense foliage, the national parks found in the region offer gorgeous sites with a wide of array of animals. I got to learn a lot from these parks viewing some animals that I had only seen in the internet.
The sunshine coast certainly offers the best opportunities when you are looking to just have a good time unwind and make memories that will forever remain fresh in your mind. Moving from one place to another also provides great photo taking opportunities. I am sure that if my camera could talk, it would tell you I came home with thousands of photos to remind me of the best vacation I have ever had.
