Our Location

Approximately one hour north of Brisbane by car or train, Nambour is in the centre of the Sunshine Coast and close to everything our region has to offer.

With a population of 350,000 residents and more than 2.8 million visitors per year, the Sunshine Coast region of south-east Queensland offers a wonderful environment and lifestyle for residents and visitors alike.

Here you will find:
  • Sweeping clean beaches bordered by beautiful blue water
  • Majestic mountain ranges and refreshing native rainforests
  • Tranquil hillside villages famous for arts and crafts
  • Perfect weather with winter temperatures a warm 23 degrees centigrade
  • Scenic drives along ridges and valleys overlooking expanses of coastline and plantations

Such is the beauty of the Sunshine Coast.

For many years this region was a heartland for tropical produce like sugar cane, pawpaw and bananas and for dairying and other animal husbandry ventures. Today the region continues to offer the best of city and country life.

Our Campus

The Sunshine Coast and Nambour Christian College offer a safe, supportive and truly Australian experience for international students. Our College was established in 1980 and has grown to be one of the most respected educational institutions in Queensland.
