It’s a tale as old as time itself, when the children leave home and you’re left with an empty nest. Whilst this may be a significant life adjustment, it can also present the opportunity to pursue old passions and find new hobbies. The Sunshine Coast is a thriving locale that perfectly balances the beauty of the outdoors with the hustle and bustle of the city. Playing host to an array of events and activities, from music and comedy to sport and culture, there is a new experience to be had each week.
Cooking up a storm
Discover the finer arts of cooking and baking, from your very own kitchen. Be inspired by the salty sea breeze as it wafts through your home in salted caramel desserts or deliciously marinated roasts, which can be shared joyously in your open planned living space. Experiment with local produce from artisans at the Kawana Waters Farmers Markets or meet new friends for a casual breakfast bite, coffee & music while you shop.
Get lost in nature
Surrounded by walking trails and nature reserves, find yourself on the tranquil Birtinya Island in the morning and at the pristine Lake Kawana in the afternoon. For the adventurers, enjoy a surfer’s haven at Bokarina Beach and a thrilling mountain bike trail at Sugar Bag Road, Caloundra.
Find a passion project
Often in life, we find ourselves too busy to be involved in causes that we are passionate about. Volunteering at local Sippy Creek Animal Refuge, or a charity close to your heart can be a fulfilling experience that will also have positive impacts on the local community.
