Kawana Waters on the Sunshine Coast is a tropical ocean resort area with housing covering all price ranges. Most accommodation is located on or near spectacular beaches. The hinterland sports spectacular views and rainforests walks. This is our 17th year at this popular site.
We meet at Venue 114, a modern air-conditioned venue located between the towns of Mooloolaba and Caloundra and a short drive from the accommodation in these areas.
The weather will be warm, generally sunny and ideal for outdoor activities. Any occasional rain in this subtropical setting does not curtail activities.
Dining: Restaurants and cafes are plentiful and varied in cuisine. You can also easily prepare any or all of your meals in your own unit as most are equipped with their own kitchen.
Activities: Recreation activities revolve around the beach and ocean—surfing, swimming, kayaking and whale-watching boat trips. Steve Irwin’s Australian Zoo is a 30 minutes’ drive away, where you can view Australian wildlife and crocodile feeding shows. Rainforest and hinterland sightseeing is also popular. Some take advantage of the opportunity of visiting the Great Barrier Reef while in Queensland on trips before or after the Feast.
There is a normal range of activities—family day, a young adults’ activity, a seniors’ lunch, teen outing and an evening family social event for the whole family. You can visit our website (ucg.org.au) later in the year for further updates on these activities and information about the Feast on the Sunshine Coast in 2023.
Travel: The Sunshine Coast is an easy 90-minute drive north of the Brisbane International Airport. Car rentals are available at the airport. Visitors must remember that we drive on the left side of the road in Australia. Shuttles run continually from the airport to Sunshine Coast. One of the best ways to exchange money for overseas visitors is through an ATM.
