    Best time to visit Sunshine Coast

    Golden beaches is an attraction of the Sunshine Coast that must be experienced with the convenience of a car. With kilometers of coastline, you can definitely catch a wave or two and soak up some sun. Although to the locals, the water is considered cold in the winter months, tourists from all over the world swim all year round. Weather-wise, September to November is the perfect time to go to the Sunshine Coast. 

    Experience Bicentennial National Trail which is the longest marked walk track in the world. It has more than 5000 kilometers long and on the part passing Sunshine Coast, you can admire the trails of the early pioneers. On the Sunshine Coast side of the trail you can also catch a side of the typical flora and fauna of this part of Australia.

    If you enjoy surfing, the best time is during autumn and winter, from March to September, while if your kids love the zoo, you may want to avoid the Australian school holidays.

    Driving tips in Sunshine Coast

    The Sunshine Coast is a tourist region in Queensland, about 75 minutes north of Brisbane, located on the coast of the Pacific Ocean. The major arterial roads, which pass through most major areas of the Sunshine Coast are The Nicklin Way & Sunshine Motorway . Its population of about 270,000 means that it grabs the 9th spot in Australia's largest metropolitan areas. 

    Some of the notable beaches from Sunshine Beach near Noosa to Coolum Beach is 17 km, the coast from Point Arkwright to Mudjimba is 11 km, the Maroochydore–Mooloolaba stretch is 5.6 km, and from Buddina past the Caloundra CBD to Pelican Waters is 22 km via rental car.

    If you are in search for an alternative beach holiday destination or want to escape the crowd on the Gold Coast, then the Sunshine Coast is the place to be. Still fairly untouched in terms of major developments, you can enjoy the city more by booking a car rental. Since the city is bordered by unbroken beaches, you can expect many breathtaking scenery as you travel by car or campervan.
