SUNSHINE COAST

Firstly, let me start with where Sunshine Coast is, about 101km north from Brisbane Airport. Located on the South East of Queensland, Sunshine coast is proud to show off its 60km of coastline on the Pacific Ocean. Sunshine Coast offers fantastic hinterland full of tropical forests and native animals, magnificent waterfalls, canals and freshwater rivers and breath taking pristine beaches.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row height=”auto” seperator_indeed_locker=”” lk_t=”ism_template_1″ lk_io=”default” lk_dm=”0″ lk_thm=”0″ lk_tuo=”0″ ru_on=”0″ uhc_on=”0″ ur_on=”0″ ref_on=”0″][vc_column][vc_column_text]Sunshine Coast offers hundreds of activities for all ages and all budget, whether you are a solo traveller, couple, family or group of friends……. for Female Solo Travellers, Sunshine Coast is safe and easy to get around. One will need to use common sense when travelling alone, doesn’t matter where you are.

Fly in to Brisbane or Sunshine Coast airport
Most international flights, fly direct in to Brisbane / Sydney / Melbourne
From Brisbane Airport to Sunshine Coast, is just over one hours drive, you will have to get a rental car or airport transfer
From Sydney or Melbourne, you can get a connecting flight to Sunshine Coast, choose a taxi or airport shuttle or rental car to get to your hotel

Places to Stay
Accommodation in Sunshine Coast offers accommodation for all budgets, you can pick from camping, backpacking, Bed and Breakfast, Apartment style Hotels, Motel or Hotel
My recommendation is to pick some where in the heart of Sunshine Coast like Mooloolaba – easy drive from Mooloolaba will take you to hinterlands, north or south of the coast.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row height=”auto” seperator_indeed_locker=”” lk_t=”ism_template_1″ lk_io=”default” lk_dm=”0″ lk_thm=”0″ lk_tuo=”0″ ru_on=”0″ uhc_on=”0″ ur_on=”0″ ref_on=”0″][vc_column][vc_column_text]
