When you getaway to Noosa this Australia Day don’t forget to book in some transport for while you’re on the Sunshine Coast. While there is an excellent public transport system operating in Noosa, nothing beats jumping in the car to make a daytrip out to the hinterland, the markets to Eumundi or perhaps one of the Australia Day events that is not quite local to any of the central accommodation in Noosa.

To give you an idea of the breadth and scope of events that have been organised in Noosa for Australia Day we’ve  put together a longish but by no means comprehensive list of things happening that day. There is bound to be something here for everyone.

The Sunshine Coast is a spectacular part of beautiful Queensland, located only an hour from the great city of Brisbane.

The Sunny Coast as it is affectionately called by the locals is a very different holiday experience than the Gold Coast. The pace of life here is slower and calmer with a laid back feeling that just lets you relax and enjoy what the area has to offer.

The golden beaches seem to just keep going, from the unique Noosa North Shore, the amazing Fraser Island and surrounding areas. Not to mention all the beach front accommodation the Coast has to offer with their amazing pools and facilities.

There are so many things to see and do while visiting the Coast, a drive to the Hinterland and all the little villages that you will go through, it is a must to stop and check out all the local art and craft shops and the food, yes the food is out of this world.

There is the Eumundi Markets, Australia Zoo, Underwater World, Buderim Ginger just to name a few and the Gold Coast theme parks just over an hour away.

Maroochydore is the shopping hub of the Sunshine Coast with Sunshine Plaza offering over 220 shops, everything any avid shopper could possibly need, want or desire. Go Girls!

What you will need to be able to see and experience all these fabulous things on offer is a set of wheels. This is where we come in, Sunshine Coast Hire Cars offers the cheapest car rental available in the area.
