There's no excuse for having nothing to do when you are on the Sunshine Coast. Attractions include the Glass House Mountains, Noosa National Park, Cooloola National Park, Underwater World, Australia Zoo, Big Pineapple, Noosa's Hastings St and Main Beach, Ginger Factory, Montville, Maleny and the Blackall Range, wineries and golf courses.
If everything else is a bit sedate for you why not try
Mooloolaba, Noosa or Caloundra,
abseiling in the
Glasshouse Mountains, skydiving
at Coolum and Caloundra,
Harley Davidson rides,
swimming with seals and sharks, a
flight, or see
if you have what it takes to be a pilot with a
trial instructional flight.

The climate is mild most of the year. It doesn't get too cold, even mid-winter, but Queensland's summers can be scorching and humid from December to February. Winter temperatures range from around 7 degrees overnight to the high teens and low 20's during the day. In summer expect minimums in the high teens and daytime maximums around 30-35 degrees. The wettest time of the year is from December to April. Current weather details.
You can get around the coast using public transport but visitors can make the best use of their time by driving their own vehicle or a hire car. The Main Roads Department operates webcams on major roads so you can see how the traffic is flowing before you hit the road.
