Hello Sunshine at Sunshine Plaza!

It’s Action Stations at the Coast’s favourite destination for all things fun. Carlie Wacker says Hello Sunshine to good times and great food at Sunshine Plaza.  

Sunshine Plaza is the heart of family fun and a precinct that makes magical memories for your whole crew. From a family day out to a fun date for two, look no further because this venue ticks all the boxes and then some. Come with me on the “entertainment tour” that offers a good time every time. 

We all love a movie session and with 12 cinemas at BCC screening the latest releases daily, it is always showtime! 

With four Supersaver Fun Passes to choose from, you can extend the good times with a movie, meal and playtime voucher with food discounts, free all-day parking and tickets to get your game on at the arcade or get a literal high on the ropes course.

If you haven’t explored the Next Level Ropes Course yet, it is so much fun with seven circuits across four levels and 145 aerial challenges including 16 ziplines at 130 metres across Cornmeal Creek. It is suitable for all experience levels from
6 years of age so clip in and get zipping! 

For an activity with less sky and more water, head to Plaza Pontoon to hire a paddle boat, mini speed boat, kayak or stand up paddle board to cruise the picturesque Cornmeal Creek. 

Immerse yourself in a real-life adventure game with challenging entertainment options at Red Lock Escape Rooms. Step into one of their traditional or brand-new virtual reality escape rooms and band together with your squad to solve the puzzle and break free. 

Little adventurers will love exploring Rush Adventureland with the multi-level soft-play playground, ninja course and climbing arena. While older fun seekers will thrill at the hyper bumper cars and the Rush rollercoaster. 

Now all this play time will make you hungry so I recommend checking out one of the twenty awesome venues for a bite and beverage along Cornmeal Promenade and the Riverwalk. 

Wine And Nine is a gorgeous water side café located near the High Ropes and is a calm oasis away from the bustle – plus the chilled wine, fruity cocktails and culinary masterpieces make this foodie paradise a winner for the whole fam to hit pause and unwind. 

Wara Sushi is the new kid on the block. Pick a booth and then scoot over to your very own iPad to order a fanciful Japanese feast—this place is a step-up from your average sushi train. For a failproof meal, start with miso, a plate of okonomiyaki, gyoza and a fresh salmon and avocado roll. Oh, and the karaage chicken bowl is to die for, if you’re wanting something with more substance.

Filling the pancake-shaped hole in the stomachs of Sunshine Coasters, Pancake Pantry is the all-new, sweet-loving restaurant you need to meet. It’s a sweet Riverwalk addition that flaunts its fluffy mounds of deliciousness. This joint is also home to dessert waffles, delicate crêpes and a range of savoury options.

TGI Fridays is set to open soon with mouthwatering soul food like saucy ribs, Long Island ice teas, buffalo wings, char-grilled steaks and loaded potato skins. The All American TGI Fridays vibe is somewhere the whole family will be chomping at the bit to check out. 

So for a full day of fun and food, say “Hello Sunshine” and get your game on at Sunshine Plaza!
