    Just having a few days in Sunshine Coast and had some sun, but now it's raining for a few days. I considered buying an investment/getaway in this area. I've heard it cops a bit of rain though? What does that mean in reality? It can't be all bad can it? I lived in Northern Europe for years so don't want to swap the hot and sunny inland for the coast if it's going to be a wash out. Any experiences from rain haters?

    I used to fly to the Sunshine Coast regularly for work. In the hotter months it rains a lot. And if you're really lucky the planes have to abort their landing due to poor weather and divert to Brisbane.

    Just got back from two weeks in Noosa and was fortunate to only have one day of rain - but I've never been there outside of winter.

    The Sunshine Coast really appeals to me - I like the laid back vibe and sun in July :)

    Cheers

    We get most of our rain in summer. Because it's warm it's not as bothering. Don't get much rain in winter. It's not unusual to go weeks without a drop.

    For those living on the coast - what are your thoughts on Peregian Beach? I've spent literally 30 minutes in the area but it seemed really nice. Good local shops - supposed to have good schools. Far enough away from Noosa to avoid the crowds - but close enough to pop in whenever you like.

    Cheers

    We usually have dry winters and evening storms in Summer. If you are really lucky you might get a cyclone. I think there has only been one since the early 70s and it was all fizzled out by the time it got here. You didn't want to hear bout cyclones, then?

    Those days when it rains non stop are very rare. Really. Most times it is fine most of the day and we just get a shower or two and only for a few minutes at a time.

    Jamie, living at any beach that is away from the touristy meccas will be lovely.
