If you find yourself waking up, hopping out of bed, showering and brewing your coffee, only to realise you have nothing to do, then we’re here to help.
From village festivals and boho markets to Sunday sessions that’ll help you forget Monday is just around the corner, scroll down to check out some of the best things to do on the Sunshine Coast this weekend.
Friday 20 September
Currimundi Lake Twilight Markets
The Currimundi Twilight Markets are back this September to fill the gap in the lives of all the market-loving crew down the southern end of the Coast. Popping up on the foreshore of Currimundi Lake, this twilight event is an intimate affair of unique food stalls, bar and an entertainment area. We suggest packing your own picnic blanket for all the eating and lazing you’ll be doing, plus your swimsuit or boardies for a sunset swim in the lake. Now that’s one chilled out way to wrap up the week.
Band of Frequencies At The Bowlo
It will be a full house at Coolum Beach Bowls Club this Friday, as Band of Frequencies, along with Zac Gunthorpe, take centre stage from 8pm to 11.30pm. Free entry means more cash for beer, so if you haven’t organised a designated driver yet, you’d better hop to it. Awesome tunes, cheap cold ones and a fun crowd—nights at the bowlo just got better.
Saturday 21 September
Village Vibes Festival
The perfect chance to support Peregian Beach businesses and the local community post-bushfires, Village Vibes Festival spans over Friday and Saturday, bringing together a culmination of events. Held from 3pm to 8pm on Friday, and 7.30am to 12pm on Saturday, there will be food and drink specials from Peregian restaurants, spring fashion launches by local boutiques, free yoga and Pilates classes and so much more.
Sunday 22 September
Everything Boho Sunshine Coast Market
There can never be too many markets, and the Sunshine Coast’s newest pop-up event is already one of our favourites. The Everything Boho market will be held this coming Sunday from 9am to 12pm in Maroochydore, and will boast stalls, ranging from locally handmade goods (think candles and jewellery) to secondhand bohemian fashion wares. With brands like Auguste The Label, Spell & The Gypsy Collective and Arnhem, threads will be snapped up quickly, so don’t dawdle.
Stone & Wood Sunday Session
To celebrate Stone & Wood’s release of their new refreshing beer, Locale is firing up the Noosa party scene with a Sunday session that’s as cool as it is tasty. Put the word out to your mates now, and head down to Hastings Street for stone-fired pizzas, mouth-watering cicchetti, a pint of beer and epic beats by our favourite Sunshine Coast DJ, Niki Dé Saint. Oh and entry is totally free! If there’s a better way to end the weekend, we don’t know about it.
