Sunshine Coast Hosts World Class Sporting Attractions



The Sunshine Coast is gaining momentum as one of Queensland’s top places to stay. Not only is it a fantastic holiday destination but it has gradually been building its repertoire of major sporting events as well. Home of the Noosa Triathlon and the PGA Championship, the Sunshine Coast is fast becoming a hub for world class sporting events and heroes, where locals and visiting fanatics can experience the thrill of live sports in action.

The Noosa Triathlon is a hotspot event for tri-athletes across the country and is Noosa’s principal sporting event each year. This year, the event will run from 27th until the 31st October in Noosa Heads Lions Park bringing a multitude of people to Noosa to watch or participate in the event and fill the  hotels, motels, resorts, restaurants and cafes to bursting point. The Noosa Triathlon is comprised of an arduous 1500 meter swim in a sheltered, pristine Noosa Canal, 40 km bike ride through the beautifully scenic Noosa countryside and the 10 km run through gorgeous Noosa Sound.

The PGA Championship is being held at the remarkable Hyatt Regency Coolum and is Australia’s oldest professional golf tournament. This event is hot on the heels of the Whistling Straits Championship in Wisconsin USA in August where Martin Kaymer and Bubba Watson made for an exciting tournament. The Australian PGA Championship in Coolum has in previous years, attracted some of the biggest names in golf including professionals such as Adam Scott, Robert Allenby, Geoff Ogilvy, John Daly, Vijay Singh and Stuart Appleby and is aiming to attract an equally star studded line up this year. Daly, Scott, Ogilvy and Allenby are already confirmed and are sure to attract a horde of dedicated followers.

With so many fans and supporters amassed in both Coolum and Noosa for each respective event, accommodation is sure to already be scarce. Why fight the multitudes for the remaining, few places to stay when you can discover the hotel and motel gems that the rest of the Coast has to offer. A short commute from the action, Mooloolaba has all the luxuries of a beachside indulgence and has a multitude of affordable and quality motel options.
