Well, hello April. Fancy seeing you here. We were just getting it on with March and then you show up. Thankfully, you’re bringing a few kickass events our way, so we’re happy to let it slide. This time.
If you’re on the hunt for things to do on the Sunshine Coast this April, add these babies to your calendar.
All You Can Eat Japanese Buffet | Every Saturday and Sunday
We’ve just received word that the guys at Noosa’s Geisha Japanese Restaurant are hosting an epic all-you-can-eat buffet every weekend from 11am to 2pm. For just under 20 bucks, you’ll open the gates to a steady flow of sushi rolls, okonomiyaki, spicy karaage, tako yaki, miso, and yakiniku pork to name a few. We call, BARGAIN! And reckon you should add this to your April shortlist of things to do on the Sunshine Coast, like yesterday.
Where: 195 Weyba Road, Noosaville

Fluro Friday Moffat Beach | Every Friday
We’re all for a good cause. Even more so when that good cause involves dressing in fluro threads and hitting the water for a wave or paddle with a bunch of cool peeps who are breaking the stigma surrounding mental health issues. Launching in March, Fluro Friday is held every Friday (duh!) at 6.30am at Moffat Beach. Not keen on getting salty? Just wear your get-up, and head on down for a chat and a morning dose of Vitamin D. One of the best feel-good things to do on the Sunshine Coast this month!
Where: Moffat Beach
Ladies Night At Elixiba | Every Wednesday
This is not your average ladies night. Oh no! Sure, there’ll be loads of laughter and goss, but that’s where the similarities end. About as far away from loud music, shots of Jager, and a late-night pizza delivery that you can get, Elixiba hosts an epic gal’s night every Wednesday centred around raw chocolate fondue and build-your-own martinis. We had no idea a night out could be so flippin’ healthy.
Where: 11-13 Ocean Street, Maroochydore

DJ Night & Late Eats | Every Friday and Saturday
As of this Friday, no longer can you complain that there’s no late night eats in Noosa. Why? Because Red on Thomas is filling the void with the launch of their new event, DJ Night & Late Eats. Serving up a tasty menu—think: duck spring rolls with chilli jam, beef sliders, and zucchini fries—this riverside restaurant has got you covered ‘til 11pm, every Friday and Saturday. Late night hunger pangs be gone!

Nights On Ocean | April 8
If you’ve managed to recover from the Ocean St World Festival or missed out and need to get your market fix, Nights on Ocean is happening again this Friday night. Hop between food stalls—do not miss the salt and pepper calamari—check out some threads, and grab a drink at one of the best bars on Ocean Street. Really, there’s no better way to give the week you’ve just finished the finger, and the weekend a solid embrace.
Where: Ocean Street, Maroochydore
Champagne and Pizza | April 10
If you haven’t hunted down El Capitano, our fave new pizza joint in Noosa, this foodie event is as good a reason as any. Actually, it’s better than most reasons, because it’s champagne AND pizza. Together. With six drops to taste, and cheesy toppings on a 72-hour sourdough pizza base, this has got to be the ultimate Sunday late lunch.
Where: 52 Hastings Street, Noosa Heads

Peregian Originals | April 10
Just admit it. You, along with everyone else, are hangin’ for the second Sunday of the month when the Originals take over Peregian Beach park. It’s one of the most anticipated things to do on the Sunshine Coast. This April, artists taking to the grassy stage include Biscuit, Murray Kyle, and David Flower Band to name a few. BYO everything you could possibly need for an afternoon in the sun spent listening to tunes—dancing shoes, rugs,
booze water. Oh and there’ll be a drum circle, so be prepared to let out your inner hippie, not hipster, and you’ll fit right on in.
Where: Peregian Beach Park
Her Wardrobe | April 16
We’ve shared a dose of love for Her Wardrobe before, though we can’t help but have even bigger heart eyes now that it’s becoming a regular thing. How does it work? Pay a $2 entry fee, and you’ll gain access to over 70 stalls of second-hand clothing from local girls. That’s something like 10,000 potential new-to-you outfits all piled into one space—a thrifter’s paradise. Got stuff to sell? It’s not too late to nab a stall with your squad and give last year’s fave jeans a new home.
Where: Lake Kawana Community Centre, 114 Sportsman’s Parade, Bokarina
Mel Buttle at Nook and Cranny | April 22
Hankering for a laugh but can’t bear to wait until May when the Melbourne International Comedy Festival Roadshow comes to town? We get it! And that’s where Nook and Cranny comes in. Hosting the super dry and “unique” Mel Buttle, we highly recommend emptying your bladder before pulling up a seat to this LOL show.

Sunday Sessions At Little Miss Saine | Every Sunday
So, this week it’s up to you to pick the Sunday sesh spot? Tough gig. Well, it would be, except we’re gonna tell you about Little Miss Saine’s end-of-the-weekend shindig, and you’ll be putting out the word to your mates faster than you can say “sangria!”. Between 2pm and 6pm, pull up a bench at this little coastal nook and between knocking back boutique beers and negronis, you can nibble on fried calamari with lime chipotle aioli, roasted jacket potatoes, and jalapeno poppers stuffed with bacon and cream cheese. Too good to be effen true, except it is!
Where: 24 Parkana Crescent, Buddina
