Why is The Sunshine Coast a Foodie’s Heaven?

The weather, the close proximity to the sea, and the lush and fertile land basically mean that everything grown in this region is bound to be delicious and healthy, too.

Of course, seafood is a big deal here too. The coast is lapped by warm, crystal-clear water, and they are rich in delicious seafood to try. If you’re a prawn fan, you’ll find king prawns tiger prawns in abundance, mud crabs, and a whole host of other delicious things to try.

There are many small seafood restaurants as you travel along the coastline. These are not only lower in cost but have a more intimate feel, with a stunning view of the countryside.

The local area is also ideal for growing fresh fruits, and you will easily find avocados, mangoes, pineapples, and strawberries. There are beehives to create fresh honey, dairy farms that produce delicious camel milk, and cheese made from rich and creamy goat’s milk.

Farmers’ markets are everywhere too, so you can head off and peruse what is on offer in the beautiful countryside.

Love Australian Wine?

There are many wineries around the Sunshine Coast, but Sirromet Wines is one of the largest. Here, you can enjoy a wine tour, learn about how the wine is produced, and then taste a few different options before perhaps taking a bottle or two home with you at the end of the day!

There is also an award-winning restaurant on-site, which only serves dishes made of organic, locally-grown produce. You’re in for a treat if you visit!

If you’re not a wine fan but you’re more of a beer fan, you’ll find plenty of farmer’s markets that also allow you to try a few locally brewed choices. Beware, this type of beer is a little stronger than the stuff you buy in the supermarket, but it’s certainly delicious!

How to Plan Your Sunshine Coast Food Trail Adventure

You have two main options here – you can either plan your trail yourself, or you can have it done for you.

The coast is packed with foodie destinations, such as the farmer’s markets and a whole host of delicious and famous restaurants. It’s hard to plan your route unless you do a lot of research or you have some prior knowledge of the area.

That said, it’s not impossible, and many online resources like Tourism Noosa website can help you do so. There are many accommodation options along the way, so you can tie it all in to create a fantastic and very memorable road trip.

Secondly, you could have a company arrange a bespoke trip for you. Many tour companies offer Sunshine Coast Food Trail adventures including Noosa’s restaurants, and you simply need to Google to find the best one for you.

Some tours will focus more on seafood, some will focus more on the countryside, and some will go more towards the ocean and let you discover all the hidden gems. You need to think about where you want to focus your attention and then do your research from there.

It’s certainly a good idea to head into the rural areas if you can, as this is where you’ll find the best and freshest produce. There is nothing better than feeling the juice of a fresh strawberry drip down your chin or tasting the zing of pineapple fresh off the tree and enjoying the mouth-watering days.
