From Marcoola, the major city of Sunshine Coast is 4 miles (6 kilometers) to the southwest.
Visiting just one town or city, no matter how popular, will only ever provide you with a narrow window into the broader rhythms and life-ways of a region. So try to allow a few days to visit Queensland's other attractions. Some interesting places within a relatively short distance of Marcoola are Black Mountain, 19 miles (31 kilometers) to the southeast, and Maleny, 19 miles (31 kilometers) to the northeast.
When you come to Marcoola, spend a few hours exploring Redcliffe. Approximately 45 miles (72 kilometers) away, this regional transport and shopping hub is where you can find Redcliffe Botanic Gardens, Redcliffe Museum and Redcliffe Golf Club. Bluewater Square, Settlement Cove Lagoon and Redcliffe Showgrounds are also well-worth checking out before heading back to Marcoola.
People who arrive in Queensland delight in discovering the farms here.
The wider region has plenty of outdoor options for visitors with an affinity for watersports. Scuba diving and spearfishing are just two of the popular choices here. Why not challenge yourself with a a completely different adventure during your stay here. Try sky diving; you'll never forget it.
So book your tickets, pack your backpack and enjoy this amazingly beautiful destination.
