Sunshine coast

My partner and I are travelling to the Sunshine Coast in Queensland in a few weeks, and we traveled to the Gold Coast back in April this year.
Does anyone have any ideas of what we could do while we are there? We aren't looking for anything too full on, just a relaxing weekend as we will be there for 4 nights.

I think the Sunshine coast leaves the Gold Coast for dead, but the hinterland is special up there, the pace of life is much calmer and people are more friendly.

Google sunshine coast travel and you will have it all.

If you are going by car, near the Donnybrook exit north of Caboolture look for the tin cow on the R H side of the highway. At a glance you might think it is real. Haven't been up there for quite a whoile so I hope it is still there. Ity is in a paddock and roughly life size but has a weird colour. Reply
