    Hi All,

    I'm taking the wife and my toddler to Sunshine coast in September. Has anyone got recommendations for where to stay what to do?

    Cheers,

    Accommodation: Toddler - Twin Water is great with lots of activities. (But I avoid it, I've done my share of screaming kids :p)
    Sightseeing: Just to name a few: Australia Zoo, Glasshouse Mountains, Yandina Ginger Factory. I love Montville and Maleny, but might be boring for toddler..
    Of course dont forget to visit Brisbane. Will recommend places if you are coming.

    Noosa. It's paradise.

    Plenty of water activities - paddle boarding, learn how to surf, heaps of swimming (little cove and main beach are awesome for families).

    The national park is wonderful to explore - not uncommon to spot a koala.

    Gympie terrace and the river area are also awesome for families - cook a bbq, take a picnic, get fish and chips or eat at one of the dozens of restaurants.

    Easy drive into the hinterland for day trips - Maleny and Montville are quite pretty. If you're into beer - the brouhaha brewery in Maleny is worth a visit.

    If you get sick of Noosa - you can drive down to Peregian and Coolum. Both are only 15 mins away and have their own vibe.

    Check out Airbnb - plenty of places to choose from.

    Cheers

    Jamie

    Bundy rum distillery is nowhere near the sunshine coast. Fraser Island is close, but once again not on the SC.

    @Ed Barton -I'm a shade misguided - I include the Fraser Coast in the Sunny bit.

    Noosa or mooloolaba. Noosa main beach is nice and protected for a toddler. I love the sunny coast.

    A shade?
    Bundaberg is a good 7+-hour return trip. Add an hours drinking at the distlery and that's a large day.
    Fraser Island can not be seen in a day.
    The coast between Noosa and Fraser is pretty. Take a picnic and spend the night.

    7 hrs return....a walk in the park. I've been known to drive 5-6 hours for a day's skiing and return the same way.

    Look at you go! Local knowledge galore... just 20 more years before you're a real local :)
