Pacific Paradise is a beach-side suburb on the Sunshine Coast, Queensland, Australia.

Right smack in the middle of the Sunshine Coast, Pacific Paradise lies just north of Maroochydore, off the David Low Highway on the way to Coolum and Noosa.

Two of Queensland’s better mainland resorts are nearby – Twin Waters and the Coolum Resort and golf course.

Stretching north to Noosa from here are several beautiful beaches – Coolum, Peregian, Marcus and Sunshine. There’s great beach fishing along this part of the coast and in the Maroochy River and estuary down the road.

This very central Sunshine Coast location is a great base for the very many delights on offer in this part of the world. Named somewhat predictably by the developer who opened up the area, Pacific Paradise is part of the Maroochy Shire which embraces a number of large parks whose flora range from the wallum heath and wildflowers of Peregian Environmental Park and Mooloola River National Park, the wet eucalypt and rainforest of Conondale National Park and the gushing Kondalia Falls and the rainforest of Mapleton Falls National Park.
