Retirement Villages Sunshine Coast

Why consider retirement living in Sunshine Coast

Like its glitzier Gold Coast cousin, the Sunshine Coast has grown to blend into the Queensland capital. As such it can be said to extend from Brisbane’s suburbs of Caboolture and Bribie Island to as far north as Noosa. Inland towns like Cooroy, Nambour, Woombye and Kilcoy may also be considered part of the region. The subtropical climate features mild and dry winters, with summers warmer and more humid.
