    The Sunshine Coast is a popular destination amongst local and international travellers. The stunning coastline has many different balmy locations to offer visitors and definitely something for everyone to enjoy. Maroochydore is the heart of Queensland's Sunshine Coast that offers beautiful swimming and surfing beaches with crystal blue water alongside green stretches of parklands. This vibrant city also has a hustle and bustle feel to it particular around the Sunshine Plaza, the Sunshine Coasts largest shopping mall with local boutiques, department stores and alfresco dining.

    Head south to Beerwah for an adventure filled day at Australia Zoo, home to over 1,200 animals and was founded by the late Australian icon, Steve Irwin. Get up close and personal with kangaroos or smile for a photo holding a baby saltwater crocodile. Continuing south, drive your car hire to Surfers Paradise. This thriving city has a great nightlife along the main strip, Cavil Avenue, as well as many hotels, beaches, shopping boutiques, bars and restaurants. Surfers is also home to Australia's three largest theme parks, Warner Brothers Movie World, Dreamworld and Wet'n'Wild Water World.

    Those who love water sports can travel north to Noosa. This tropical paradise is perfect for visitors who'd like to go fishing, scuba diving, surfing and boating, irrespective of prior experience. Take a walk through the Noosa National Park to experience 4000 hectares of beach, bushland and vegetation or trek through the Tewantin Forest Reserve if you'd prefer to see a fascinating rainforest that features a eucalypt forest. If you continue north from Noosa you will reach Hervey Bay, naturally blessed with wild forests, lakes and pristine beaches. From Hervey Bay, you can take a ferry over to the largest sand island in the world, Fraser Island.

    Parking and Tolls

    Areas of the Sunshine Coast are marked by time-limited parking bays. The parking bays are regulated by a meter system and offer a different length of stays depending on the signage in the area.

Something to make note of is that the parking meters do not currently accept notes or credit cards so be sure to have some loose change in your pocket.
