Why Sunshine Coast?

The Sunshine Coast is a very popular tourist destination for people from all around Australia and international guests. It has over 45 kilometres of beachfront including some of Australia’s most beautiful beaches and with the warm climate, provides locals, tourists and holiday makers with plenty of outdoor entertainment.

History

The Sunshine Coast was first inhabited in the 1820’s and in 1842 it was declared as a Bunya Bunya Reserve for the protection of the Bunya Tree until 1860 and then it was abandoned. In the late 1800’s the region became a busy timber and cattle grazing area and by the early 1900’s small farming began taking over. By WWII the area was becoming more popular as a surfing and holiday destination which has continued to develop to now being the 9th most populated region in the country.

Climate

The Sunshine Coast has a climate that lives up to the name. It is sunny for the majority of the year with a humid summer followed by a very mild winter. The water temperature is warm enough to be able to swim all year around.

Major Events

Due to the beautiful weather and climate, the Sunshine Coast is popular for outdoor sporting events. Each year it is host to two of the top triathlons in Australia where people from around the country come to compete as well as one of the great Ironman locations. These events are the Mooloolaba Tri, Noosa Tri and Ironman. For music lovers there is the Woodford Folk Festival over the New Year’s period.

Local Economy & Major Employment Industries

The Sunshine Coast has not traditionally been known as a major employment hub however in recent years employment in professional services has grown significantly.

Health Care and Construction are still the two major employers at the Sunshine Coast however retail is the third largest employment industry and this is significantly above the Australian average. Tourism and Accommodation services are also high employers due to the large number of visitors that come to the Sunshine Coast for holidays.

Estimated Population

The Sunshine Coast’s population is approximately 320,000 people and is growing at a rate of approximately 2% per annum.
