Outdoor adventures at the Sunshine Coast Regional District

Set along a rugged part of the coast, Sunshine Coast Regional District is ideal for rustic retreats, exploring the forest, inlets and unspoiled landscapes. During the summer months, Sunshine Coast Regional District vacation rentals are popular with families and groups who want to enjoy sailing on serene seas, finding little beaches and soaking up the mild sunshine. Surrounded by mountains that are covered in soft powdery snow during the winter, the area invites you to bring your skis and enjoy the crisp, sunny days and spectacular coastal views.

Things to do

Play farmer in the Sunshine Coast Regional District

Let your kids play farmer for the day at Farm Ventures. More interactive than your average zoo, kids can ride a pony, collect eggs and get up close to lots of friendly farm animals. Llamas and goats roam around, for you to feed, and there are smaller animals such as fluffy guinea pigs and rabbits to cuddle. Because the experience is booked in advance, groups are small, and you'll enjoy a tour of this serene farm that's hidden among dense forest. You can also book a longer pony ride along nearby mountain trails, which give you views across the coast.

Activities

Sail around the Sunshine Coast Regional District

Many Sunshine Coast Regional District vacation rentals sit along the waterfront with private jetties, so you can bring your own boat or hire one. This is a great way to explore the rocky coastline of the Sunshine Coast, where small stretches of sandy beach are to be found. Roberts Creek has sand and shingle beaches with shallow waters for swimming, and is surrounded by dense forests with trails to explore. At the south end of the Sunshine Coast, Gibsons has a number of isolated islands to discover, and is a great site for watching playful whales leap from the sea.

Weather

Sunshine Coast Regional District – sunshine and snow

The Sunshine Coast Regional District has sunny, mild summers, just right for enjoying the outdoors. There's a temperate rainforest climate, so although you might get days in the mid-80s, it's not too hot for hiking or boating. Heavy rain falls between November and March, but head inland towards the mountains and you'll find snow and sunny skies, with snow sometimes spotted on the trails as late as June. The area is sheltered from the Pacific winter weather, so although it can get wet, it's rarely freezing by the coast.
