Activities & Events on the Sunshine Coast

Things to do and places to go

Bulcock Beach Caloundra

While most parents and carers know that it is important to apply sunscreen and put on a hat, how many would know what to do if they saw that their child was in difficulty? Accidental drownings, slips, falls or heart attacks can occur around swimming pools or even at the beach. You need to know the primary defences to ensure water safety.

“Each year, our Sunshine Coast Council proudly supports a wide range of festive season events that reflect the lifestyle, cultural values and diversity of our community…. Over the holiday season, I encourage you to get out and enjoy our region’s fantastic attractions, including our beaches and waterways, aquatic centres, art galleries and museums, parks and environmental reserves, walking and bike riding trails and all of the wonderful experiences that are right here on our doorstep”
