Get around[edit]

By car[edit]

Car is by far the easiest way to see most attractions in a short amount of time, or at your own pace. Larger car hire companies may offer relocations to Brisbane Airport or the Gold Coast. Try the major national renters with services at Maroochy Airport or other local independents that hire new cars.

By public transport[edit]

The Sunshine Coast is part of the south east Queensland translink area. Sunshine Plaza is a hub for the bus services in the area.
