If you’re more drawn to the lush greenery of the Sunshine Coast hinterlands than you are to the white sandy beaches, Eumundi is your ideal escape to nature. This small town is home to a thriving art and live-music scene. It also hosts the famous Eumundi markets and offers a friendly village-like community. There are two primary schools in Eumundi, but no big supermarket.
Noosa has it all. From the beach and boutiques to the bars and restaurants, this busy spot isn’t just great for holidays. Noosa offers plenty of activities for people of all ages and is home to several schools and childcare centres. As a hip and trendy place, it can get busy on weekends and during the school holidays. If you’re feeling flustered from the occasional crowds, you can take a walk at Noosa National Park.
Sure, it’s a little ‘touristy’, but Mooloolaba is a beautiful spot to plant your roots nonetheless. The esplanade is dotted with boutiques, restaurants, and cafés. Mooloolaba is home to one of the best beaches on the Sunny Coast, and it’s also known for its great nightlife, while remaining a safe and family-friendly place to live.

Located between Sunshine Coast central and Noosa, Peregian Beach is a quaint seaside village with a big heart. It’s perfect for young families, offering parks and playgrounds for weekend fun. Here you can enjoy a laidback lifestyle without the hustle and bustle of busier Sunshine Coast spots.
