Get out there and explore Australia's Nature Coast with the new 'Great Beach Drive'

There is nothing quite like a romantic drive along Australia's spectacular Nature Coast. It features some of the top 10 things to do in Queensland from fishing, horse riding, exploring national parks and endless food trails – you'll feel like a long weekend to cover the 200 km journey just isn't enough!

Spanning from the Sunshine to Fraser Coasts and the Great Barrier Reef, Australia's Nature Coast offers an unparalleled natural experience that will make you fall in love with some of the most beautiful places to visit in our country. The drive is filled with pristine beaches, calming rivers and waterways with an abundance of wildlife.

You can take your own four wheel drive (subject to tidal and weather conditions) or perhaps you'd prefer a guided tour? Either way it's all about reconnecting, exploring, and enjoying all that nature has to offer. CEO of Sunshine Coast Destination, Simon Ambrose says that the drive would inspire both international and domestic travellers.

“The Great Beach Drive will be a showcase for the region’s spectacular beaches, sublime climate, dramatic scenery, our abundant range of water activities, our high quality seafood and our relaxed, laid back lifestyle”.

And isn't that what Australia is all about?

So take the opportunity to have an adventurous, dreamy escape across Australia's Nature Coast, where you can horse-ride on Rainbow beach, go surfing at Double Island point or simply wine and dine at Noosa Heads. However far you decide to explore, you're guaranteed an extraordinary getaway.
