The sunshine coast has so many attractions its difficult to decide what to do first! the beaches are fabulous, there’s plenty of good restaurants, loads of shops and lots of friendly locals. A great base to explore the Sunshine Coast is Moolooaba it has a wonderful beach whether you want to surf, swim, play, walk and enjoy the view, or just chill out. Its particularly good for families as it has lifeguards patrolling so rest assured your kids will be safe.
Of course there is Australia zoo, is a brilliant day out. Highly recommended. Staff are very friendly and everything is well sign posted. There is also the Maleny Botanic Gardens & Bird World, a tranquil and peaceful atmosphere, gorgeous flowers, waterfalls and ponds. A great area with animals and beautiful birds. You are able to get up close and personal with our fine feathered friends.
If you want to see more of the area and have a bit of action packed fun you can also explore the area on an all terrain segway which is a great way for all the family to fill in a few hours, there are operators that hire segways on the sunshine coast so you will have no problem finding one.
Another good day out is the Queensland Air Museum, not too far off the Bruce Highway, there is an awesome display inside and outside of a wide variety of aircraft including airliners and helicopters, jet fighters and even an F11 and also a collection of historical memorabilia. The museum is manned by dedicated volunteers who are extremely knowledgeable and very friendly
