Sunshine Coast Was Voted 3rd Best Place in the World to Visit

At 53 I’ve not had much of a chance to do a lot of travel. Kind of sad really. But I do hear from many people how wonderful the Sunshine Coast is to visit and live.

When we moved here from Sydney in 2005, we did feel like we were on some type of fabulous holiday that never ended for around the first 2 years.

Of 21,330 tourist destinations In the latest pole of top 100 locations around the world, the Sunshine Coast has been placed 3rd. Kath and I have spent a lot of time holidaying in the Whitsundays. It’s a place we really love. It’s been placed at number 2, with the Maldives being No 1. Looks like Kath & I will have to book a trip to the Maldives to see what it’s all about.

You can see the list of 100 most-loved destinations here. It’s exciting to see how many other destinations are right here in Australia.
