Will tourism cause congestion at my favourite restaurant or shopping district

No, Tourism improves the service quality in shops, restaurants and hotels due to having a higher number of people through the door. This means that these services and facilities can grow and adapt to accommodate the influx in customers.


Will tourism drive up the price of every living on the Sunshine Coast

No it won’t. The more people in the area, the more money going to local businesses and supporting our community financially.

Won’t the local area be damaged by more people and tourists

The Sunshine Coast council is committed to a sustainable tourism strategy that enables locals and tourists to experience everything that the Coast has to offer while maintaining it for future generations.


How will a growth in Tourism help me

A growth in tourism stimulates the Sunshine Coast economy, meaning more growth for local businesses and better infrastructure which leads to a better future for the Sunshine Coast

How can I help

It’s easy to get involved with Boast Your Coast! Local residents are encouraged to maintain our friendly, welcoming attitude to all those who live, work and visit the Sunshine Coast. One of the best ways is to let people know if you’ve had a great experience somewhere in your local community by leaving a positive review or sharing a photo on social media with the hashtag #BoastYourCoast.
