Let The Good Times Roll

  • 29 Feb 2024

From boat trips and bargain flicks to heavenly cups of gelato, if you’re looking for a list of the best activities on the Sunshine Coast, consider this your bible.

Bypass Tired Legs With A Speed Boat Ride

If there’s anything a parent knows, it’s that little tired legs can halt even the greatest of plans. Rather than tempting fate, bypass the paddle boats for the epic mini speed boats at Plaza Pontoon for a session of guaranteed fun. Custom built with an electric motor, driving one of these is simple—just push the button, start steering and cruise along, either on your own (must be seven years of age or up) or with a co-captain by your side. Land ahoy!

High Tea For You And Your Minis

Whether it’s a special occasion or just a regular day that you want to make extra memorable for your minis, a high tea at Shingle Inn is the answer. Offering a high tea for both adults and kids you’ll find quaint plates filled with sandwiches, petit sweets, fluffy scones with jam and fresh cream, plus your choice of tea, coffee, sparkling wine or the irresistible lime mint julep. For the kiddos, there’s marshmallow sticks, sausage rolls, cookies and a babycino or shake, all for the taking.

Scoff Popcorn And Catch A Flick

For an activity that’ll keep the whole family entertained, there’s no going past a trip to the cinemas. And, BCC Cinemas, along The Riverwalk, is one of the best in the biz. Time it well, and you can take advantage of their Weekend Family Flick deal, where you can nab $7 tickets to a selection of family films each weekend before 5pm.

Play Hard At Timezone

A visit to Timezone is a rite of passage for kids growing up, so do yours a solid and head straight for the gaming powerhouse for hours of fun. Whether you hit the bumper cars and claw machines or battle it out at laser tag, it’s likely you’ll end up in a ball of laughter and leave with a very happy crew. Afterall, the family that plays together, stays together, right?

Binge On Beautiful Burgers

Wrap your mitts around a spread of classic burgers and chips at the one and only Betty’s Burgers. Not only will you be supporting the Noosa-born business but with beef, chicken, seafood, vegetarian and vegan options, there truly is something to quieten every growling stomach.

Get Sky-High With The Fam

Little daredevils will meet their match at Sunshine Plaza’s Next Level. Featuring seven thrilling circuits with over 145 aerial challenges, this family-friendly destination is Australia’s largest high ropes course. But don’t let that scare you! The beginner courses are for anyone 6 years and up, but you must be over 13 years old to take on the stomach-dropping, 18-metre-high expert circuit.

Break Free From An Escape Room With Your Squad

When was the last time you locked yourself in a room with your family just for fun? Never? Well, Red Lock Escape Rooms will change that. Step into one of their traditional or brand-new virtual reality escape rooms (coming in March!) and band together with your squad to solve the puzzle and break free! It won’t be easy, but we promise it’ll be damn fun.
