Sunshine Coast Official Visitor and Event Guide 2016

From listings of markets to the best nature hot spots, golf courses and health retreats, the Sunshine Coast’s Official Visitor and Event Guide 2016, leaves no stone unturned when it comes to highlighting the diversity and range of tourism offerings in the region.

Visit Sunshine Coast will distribute 100,000 copies of the 88-page publication through Sunshine Coast Visitor Information Centres as well as travel and trade outlets around the country.

The guide highlights the region’s appeal from aquatic and coastal activities to local flavours.

The new publication offers a lot more than just sightseeing suggestions according to Visit Sunshine Coast CEO, Simon Ambrose.

“People want to immerse themselves in a region when they go on holidays which is why our latest guide features a range of handy ‘Don’t miss’ checklists from adrenalin adventures to family activities. We’ve recognised many visitors might be coming for a third or fourth time, so we are showcasing experiences that suit a wide range of interests and time-frames,” Mr Ambrose said.

With 2016 set to be one of the biggest years in the region for national and international events, the guide features a new six page calendar with a full line-up of events. 

The guide also has a pull-out map, as well as handy travel information to get to and around the region, ‘did you know?’ local insights and inspiring imagery.

Printed by local company, Express Print and Mail, based in Maroochydore, the new 2016 guide is available for download at or copies will be available to order via
