The festive season is a time for celebration and what better way to entertain the crowds than over a cold one? Here’s a list of some of the Sunshine Coast’s best pubs. New and old, we have got you covered over the silly season and well into the new year!

The Imperial Hotel, Eumundi

The iconic hotel has been one of the Sunshine Coast’s best pubs amongst locals and tourists since opening its doors in 1911. While it’s one of the oldest pubs in Eumundi, the majestic Queenslander offers a new trendy vibe with colourful murals and a large sweeping verandah looking over the creative hub. The pub even brews its own lager and pale ale, so it’s definitely a must do when you are in town.

Yandina Hotel

The oldest hotel on the Coast is undergoing some exciting changes… So it might be a good time to pop in and enjoy some country hospitality while relaxing in the ambient surroundings. Make sure you head down with an empty stomach because there’s an extensive range of meals to pair with a drop of beer, wine or spirits.

Rick’s Garage Diner

A buzzing meeting place in Palmwoods that will transport you back to the ‘50s. The walls and ceilings are plastered with old school posters and memorabilia. The venue dates back to 1922 when it was originally a mechanical workshop before transforming into a diner a few years later. The diner is kid-friendly so make sure you pop in for milkshakes and super-sized burgers. Yum!

Taps Mooloolaba

Pour your own beer at Taps Mooloolaba! The casual and relaxed bar captures the sea breeze in Mooloolaba, making it a central location to meet up with some friends or enjoy afternoon work drinks. The eclectic grunge setting offers fun games and great food and an even better beer.

Uptown Gastropub Maroochydore

Relatively new but already one of the Sunshine Coast’s best pubs, Uptown combines contemporary design and an industrial look and feel. It’s in the heart of Maroochydore, so it’s easy venue to call into and grab yourself a scrumptious bite to eat.

Apollonian hotel

This picturesque historic pub and property dates back to the 1800s. Apollonian Hotel offers a delicious bistro but it’s best known for its iconic Sunday spit roast! Located about 20 minutes from Noosa Beach, the venue allows kids to run wild, while you kick back and relax.

Brightwater hotel

There’s no better way to cool off on a hot summer’s day than with a cold drink overlooking the water. The Brightwater Hotel offers just that; waterfront hospitality along the stunning lakeside. It provides a variety of entertainment for the whole family, too!

Sunshine Coast Brewery

This boutique brewery nestled in Kunda Park focuses on brewing over a dozen of different beers for the community. Founded in 1998, the brewery initially focused on making fine local ginger beer. It’s now renowned for its Summer Ale drop, which is best shared with friends and family.

The Pub at Aussie World

Last but not least, the iconic Ettamogah Pub has a new look and name! Famously perched along Downunder Drive at Aussie World, there’s no better place to pull off the highway for a bite of lunch, dinner or cold beverage. ]]>
