Holiday accommodation forms the backbone of the tourism industry on the Sunshine Coast. Millions of tourists visit this region annually as well as tens of thousands of families that come here for their school holidays or weekends away. The Sunshine Coast is only an hour's drive north of Brisbane so it makes it such a convenient location for a short break. The real estate boom that took place during the first eight years of this century saw dozens of new resorts built and these resorts now provide the great bulk of the best accommodation that is available here.
International tourists are usually looking for holiday accommodation that is right on the beachfront and the more popular regions like Mooloolaba and Noosa are the ones that they have heard about and are most likely to stay in. Places with great accommodation like the Sunshine Coast Hinterland, Caloundra, Maroochydore, Coolum and Rainbow Beach are the most popular with Australian families because they want something a little quieter but still with a great beach and activities for the family. All of these places have a large supply of holiday accommodation. Places like the Novotel Twin Waters resort are also popular with families as they provide excellent accommodation and cater for kids as well with great water sports as well as a fantastic golf course.
In Maroochydore one of the best holiday accommodation resorts is the Alexandra Beach Apartments as they have a beachfront position as well as a river pool that keeps everyone happy. Ground floor apartments have direct access to the pool system from their own balcony. In Caloundra there are a range of resorts along Golden Beach that have direct access to a calm water beach that is great for the littlies. Rainbow Shores resort at Rainbow Beach has tennis courts, par three golf course and horse riding as well as being located right on the beachfront.
With all the interest there is in visiting the Sunshine Coast, it is not surprising that there sometimes specials on offer and so much great holiday accommodation to choose from.
