Map showing Ocean Street Precinct

The Ocean Street Precinct is a vibrant cultural hub in the heart of the Sunshine Coast. Home to music, arts and culture, restaurant and bars and boutique industries, it is known as the ‘west end’ of the region for its coastal urban atmosphere and kicking nightlife.

By day the precinct is home to an eclectic mix of boutiques, cafes, creative industries, start-ups and professional services. At night, it comes alive with salsa classes, live music, an exceptional range of restaurant and bars and the monthly Nights on Ocean markets. And on weekends, those looking to dance can choose anything from reggaetón to hardcore DJ-driven electronica at venues throughout the precinct.

Wander the streets and laneways and discover street sculptures and murals, galleries and a spectacular painted Seawall. Or catch a show at The Playhouse, take in some comedy, or end up on stage at the local mic nights at the Solbar - winner of the 2018 People’s Choice Award for Regional Live Venue of the Year.

Families are a big part of the precinct culture. Holey Moley and Strike Bowling in the adjacent Big Top Shopping Centre offer entertainment for little kids and big kids in the form of everything from escape rooms to tenpin bowling to psychedelic mini golf. And each Easter, thousands flock to the annual Ocean Street World Festival, a family-friendly celebration of world music, culture and food that amplifies the precinct’s commitment to cultural inclusiveness all year round.

Just a short walk to Cotton Tree Park and soon to be connected to The Bright City, Maroochydore’s new CBD, the Ocean Street Precinct encompasses all that Ocean Street, Duporth Avenue and Beach Road have to offer.

Come and experience the little global village, it’s the beating heart of the Sunshine Coast.
