Over the next 15 years, it is expected to be the fastest growing region of SE QLD (percentage wise). Here is a list of planned infrastructure - new international airport runway Project Background - Sunshine Coast Airport - fast train to Brisbane Fast train dream takes massive step with Federal funding - light rail plan Sunshine Coast Light Rail Project - Bruce Highway upgrade - Maroochydore city centre Maroochydore City Centre Priority Development Area (PDA) - new Kawana health precinct opened in 2017 Just this week, Malcolm Turnbull announced $400m funding towards rail upgrade (Malcolm Turnbull spends big in Qld in possible election year) Its a hugely popular place for retirees but the lifestyle offered for young families is enviable with 350 days a year of sunshine.

And of course, we can't go past the fact that Bernard Salt speaks highly...
