When the end of the year rolls around and the days start to get hotter, our thoughts naturally start to turn to the holidays and the festive season. There is no better way to beat the heat than by escaping to the beach, which is why celebrating the festive season on the Sunshine Coast is such a popular choice for so many families. Just imagine it – long hot days spent relaxing on the verandah, a cool breeze tickling your feet as you sip on an ice-cold drink, punctuated only by a swim in the ocean to cool off. The Sunshine Coast has so much to offer beyond swimming and relaxation, which is why we have brought together some of the top events you can look forward to if you’re planning on spending Christmas on the Sunshine Coast in 2019.
Where to spend Christmas on the Sunshine Coast in 2019
The Sunshine Coast spans from north of Bribie Island all the way up to Noosa. There are plenty of spots for families to go and enjoy their slice of paradise, and the trick is to make sure you pick a spot with easy access to the things you love. If your family love going to the beach it is worth choosing a holiday home right on the beach or a few minutes’ walk away from the beach. Some holiday homes come with pools as well, so if the kids (and adults!) can’t get enough of the water it’s worth looking at ensuring a pool is available. Love being away from it all? Choose a spot in Verrierdale near Noosa and spend lazy afternoons reading and enjoying peace and quiet. At Prestige Homes we have a range of stunning homes and apartments across the Sunshine Coast to suit every family.
Christmas Events Sunshine Coast
Now you have sorted out where you are going to base yourself, you’ll need to get acquainted with some of the events that you can enjoy over the festive season. The Sunshine Coast is home to stunning diversity in music, art, entertainment, culture, sports, leisure and fun. There truly is something for everyone – no matter what you love.
Kicking off on 4 December at the Ginger Factory there’s a Christmas event for young and old where families can enjoy spicy ginger treats and kids can get a photo with Santa. Enjoy carols with the family on 9 December at Yandina Historic House, or catch some festive cheer at Noosa Steiner School for carols on Saturday 14 December from 7.30pm. Kids will love the Christmas Spectacular on at Aussie World on 21 December from 5pm with Mr and Mrs Clause, Christmas characters and plenty of fun and entertainment for everyone. Take a look at the range of events on offer across the Sunshine Coast and make sure to add your favourites to your diary.
