Here are four of the top, absolutely free, ideas for entertaining kids during the school holidays on the Sunshine Coast.
Enjoying the water
We are lucky to have plenty of beaches here on the Coast with many options to suit everyone. My top 3 recommendations are Kings Beach (for the water splash area and ocean pool) and Lake Currimundi and North Shore which both offer a wave-less area for those not-so-confident swimmers.
The Sunshine Coast has a range of mountains but my personal recommendations for kids are Mount Tinbeerwah (a really easy climb) and mount Coolum (more challenging but I've taken kids under ten before who really enjoyed the experience). Just remember to wear good grip shoes and take plenty of water.
3) Skate/BMX/Scooter Parks
High energy fun
What a great way to meet friends, get fit and burn off that restless energy kids build up - I'm told that Dicky's skatepark is the best but there are a many others scattered around the Sunshine Coast, the Council website lists them all here.
Remember to look up
We have an amazing hinterland full of hidden wonders to go exploring in. The Sunshine Coast Website provides a nice starting point when choosing a trail. I personally love Kondalilla falls - not only does it have beautiful scenery but you can go for a dip afterwards to cool off.
