Things to do on the Sunshine Coast of Australia

Maureen 17 Apr , 2013

I live on the Sunshine Coast of Australia and I love it here.  The weather is usually cooperative and there are many things to do, see or eat and they’re all terrific.  Don’t come all the way here and do nothing but sit on the sand.  While sand sitting is great for relaxing, get out and see something.  We love to share with friends.
