We’ve spent a lot more time on the Sunshine Coast than originally planned – there’s so much to see and do here we kept extending our stay!
Another reason that’s kept us staying longer is our incredible accommodation – we’ve been guests at the Rivershore Resort and it’s definitely taken camping to the next level (it might have spoilt us for all our future campsites!)
The Sunshine Coast stretches from Caloundra in the south up to the Cooloola Coast in the north (Tin Can Bay Area) and the Rivershore Resort is located perfectly to explore the whole region.
There is so much here to keep the kids entertained – mini golf, a jumping pillow, swimming pool with toddler area and water slides and a great play park.
The smooth, wide roads that wind around the park are perfect for bikes and scooters and there are lots of grassy areas for games of cricket or football or for flying a kite.
As the name suggest the resort sits on the Maroochy River with direct access for boats from the park – there is also a lovely jetty to fish from, or you can hire kayaks or stand up paddle boards from reception. We hired a boat one day from Swan Boat hire in Maroochydore and spent an great afternoon on the water.
It’s not just the kids who get spoiled – the resort is a winner for mum and dad too. The kids’ play park is right next to the bar and restaurant so you can sit and relax while the little ones play.
The food and drink on offer are delicious – there are craft beers to try and a gourmet a la carte menu.
Don’t miss happy hour – 4pm-5pm every day, and the live music sessions that happen regularly in the bar too.
If you don’t have your own caravan, or camping in a tent isn’t your cup of tea – then definitely give their glamping tents a try. They have all the facilities of a hotel room including free standing bath tubs!
The Rivershore Resort welcomes pets and there are 2 great dog exercise parks just a few minutes drive away. The bottom section of the bar and restaurant is also dog friendly so they can join you for dinner!
Located in paradise!
The resort is located in Didillibah – just a few minutes drive from Maroochydore and all the delights the Sunny Coast has to offer.
Five minutes up the road is Bli Bli – where Australia’s biggest castle can be found.
About 15 minutes away is another must visit – the Sealife Sunshine Coast – the marine life they have on display is incredible and it’s a great interactive experience for the kids (the seal presentation is unmissable!)
There is so much more to see in the region we’ll be catching up with all our favourite spots on the Sunshine Coast over the next few weeks.
In the meantime if you’re heading this way – be sure to stay at the Rivershore Resort – amazing family accommodation on the Sunshine Coast.
