Turf on the Sunshine Coast

The Sunshine Coast provides a unique climate and therefore needs an instant lawn turf which is suitable to the local conditions. The most common varieties of turf grass types in Australia are Kikuyu, Couch, Soft Leaf Buffalo, Queensland Blue, Broad Leaf Carpet Grass, Zoysia and Fescue but not all of these varieties are perfectly suited to the Sunshine Coast location.


When choosing turf on the Sunshine Coast you need to consider the issues specific to the location such as:


  • Climate conditions and average annual rainfall
  • Drought tolerant grass
  • Flood tolerant grass
  • Shade tolerant grass
  • Pest & Disease tolerant
  • Weed invasiveness
  • Frequency of mowing and other maintenance tasks
  • The year round colour
  • Salt tolerant


Consider also the amount of shade your lawn receives and is likely to receive over the years as trees and plants grow. Many varieties of turf struggle to thrive in heavily shaded areas.


The best choice of turf grass for the Sunshine Coast’s climate and conditions is the soft leaf buffalo, such as Sir Walter premium lawn turf.


  • It is perfectly suited to the warm and often humid climate, has excellent salt and shade tolerance, good drought, flood, pest and disease tolerance and a good all year round colour.
  • It suffers only slight invasion from weeds because of its dense mat and requires only average mowing and maintenance – making it a great choice.


Another option is one of the couch turf varieties such as the Wintergreen Couch – both are available for purchase online from Daleys Turf.
