Sunshine Coast kids – FREE things to see and do | Families Magazine recommends!
Is it possible to entertain Sunshine Coast kids free of charge? YES! Don’t believe us? Check out our list of cash-free cool times!
Sunshine Coast kids FREE STUFF!
It’s music to a parents’ ears! Kids are expensive little critters so when the opportunity arises for some fun things to do that don’t cost a CENT you grab them with both hands! Your wallet will thank us!
Family friendly beach trips
The Sunshine Coast is renowned for its beaches – particularly those that are family friendly! We’re talking calm water, lots of space to spread out and natural harbours protect kids from rougher currents.
Sunshine Coast kids free to connect with nature!
There are some wonderful local opportunities for Sunshine Coast kids to easily connect with nature and make the most of the beautiful great outdoors. Why pay to attend a local pool when you can soak in the amazing Gardners Falls instead?
Head to the Hinterlands for an invigorating exploration of Mapleton National Park. There is a HUGE trail network there that’s sure to tire out the most energetic of bush-walkers. Plenty of great opportunities for amateur photography as well!
We’d also recommend Booloumba Falls in Conondale National Park as a great Sunshine Coast kids free spot to get back to nature. Absolutely pristine forest where you can really get away from it all and recharge. A great, healthy way to spend your school holidays!
Parks, playgrounds and picnics – oh my!
How better to make the most of some family time then time spent together at a park or playground? The Sunshine Coast is absolutely ripe for the picking when it comes to cool spots for cool kids to hang out.
Some of our favourites are:
- Pioneer Park, Landsborough
- Blue Park, Bells Reach
- Pirate Park, Noosa River
- Gympie Duck Ponds Park (off the Bruce Highway) (Pssst… make sure you read our ‘duck feeding’ guide first)
- Clark Place Park, Bulcock Beach
- Little Mountain Common, Little Mountain
Sunshine Coast kids free for all!
You don’t need to spend a million bucks to get some real, memorable family time. Kids appreciate time spent with parents more than anything else. Re-connect with your kids and leave the wallet at home. You’ll thank us for it.
