visitsunshinecoast.com NEW website is launching - list or miss out! 


Visit Sunshine Coast (VSC) will be launching a brand-new website soon! Visitsunshinecoast.com is being redesigned and rebuilt to be faster, deliver personalised web experiences and most importantly to market the region’s tourism and events experiences.  

Sunshine Coast tourism businesses and event organisers will have their information featured through their Australian Tourism Data Warehouse (ATDW) listing. With over 60,000 visitors per month to the current site, the new platform will have a strong focus on conversion with ‘book now’ buttons leading direct to operators.

IMPORTANT: to ensure you are listed and promoted on the new website, please check to ensure:

1.  Your business is listed with ATDW
2.  Your listing is up-to-date and optimised.
