🌍 Most loved in the world – THE SUNSHINE COAST! 🥰

🔹 It’s true, using a computer algorithm a site has determined that our region ranks as the most loved place in the world – we can’t say we disagree at all!Did you hear that the Sunshine Coast has been named the world’s most loved destination for 2021?

This outstanding result was announced via the Tourism Sentiment Index which tracks worldwide word-of-mouth sentiment and has placed the Sunshine Coast as one of three Queensland destinations in the top ten. (Noosa coming in at number 5..)

While Sunshine Coast locals don’t need to see global survey results to confirm just how lucky we are to call this beautiful slice of coast home, it sure does go a long way for international bragging rights.
