The Sunshine Coast Winter Festival is a great way to gather and celebrate the sport of lawn bowling. It started in London way back in the 13th century when stone bowls were used as weapons, though the game’s exact origins remain unclear. We know that the oldest bowling facility is in London, built in 1299. Centuries later, the sport went to Australia, where it grew tremendously in popularity and other countries worldwide. The sport has a massive fan base, especially in Australia.
A trip to the Coast for the festival is a terrific opportunity to soak in beautiful sights, go on adventures, eat, and drink fantastic delights. Explore the stunning hinterland between matches or after the festival, home to the majestic Glass House Mountains, lush rainforests, and spectacular lookouts. Take time to get to know the world-class towns of Maroochydore, Kawana Waters, Coolum Beach, Caloundra, and Nambour, among many others and indulge in the food, drink, and shopping.
With so much to do and see during the Sunshine Coast Winter Carnival, this is a lawn bowling event you shouldn’t miss!
