GUIDE TO THE SUNSHINE COAST

Hi John and Carlene
All good with the fuel charge. I would just like to say thanks to you and the RAD team for supplying us with a good reliable car to get us around with. Definitely no complaints from myself or my family in regards to the service, car and price. Always recommend RAD to anyone who asks me about car rentals on the sunshine and gold coasts. Will do business again with RAD.
Big thanks
Glen.

Thanks again.

Hello Colette

Just a quick e-mail to thank you very much for the help and support you provided to our daughter and us over the past couple of months.  Having the access to transport to sort out her move to Australia and your understanding at short notice when plans changed was invaluable.  I must commend you on the high standard of service we received and also the quality of the vehicles we used.  Rest assured we will always request your services when visiting Australia in the future.  Once again thank you very much.

Hi Colette – just wanted to pass on our thanks for the lovely vehicle and great service we got from your company while we were in Australia last week.  My husband was stoked with the yellow Holden – yellow is his favourite colour (also made it really easy to find in car parks) and the inbuilt GPS was invaluable.  Collecting the car was really easy and we would certainly recommend your company for car rentals in Brisbane.

 

Thanks again

Rodger, Karen, Matt and Logan 

 

Hi Colette.

Thanks for the wonderful service once again. Fantastic dealing with you guys as not only did you offer complimentary GPS but we also received a free car upgrade. 

My sister has now booked a car from you guys as she will be over for a holiday.

I am hoping to come back in October and will certainly be hiring a car from you.

 

Cheers, Phil 

The gorgeous Sunshine Coast, famous for its stunning south Queensland beaches, amazing surf and rural hinterland, is the perfect Australian escape. The Sunshine Coast sweeps along Australia’s east coast, starting at popular coastal city Caloundra in the south and reaching the Great Sandy National Park in the north. Famous for upmarket boutique shopping, stunning white-sand beaches and Australia Zoo, the Sunshine Coast has something for everyone.
Activities in Sunshine Coast
Home to some of Australia’s best stretches of sand, so you’ll want to hire a car rental to explore the Sunshine Coast to the fullest. Experienced surfers will love Little Cove in Noosa Head while tamer tourists will enjoy a dip at the gorgeous and safe Mooloolaba Spit. For land-based adventure, there’s plenty of walking trails along the coast from Noosa National Park in the north, to the Maroochy Botanical Gardens down south to Caloundra and its nine kilometre Coastal Pathway. In the heart of the Sunshine Coast between Moolooba and Marcoola, make the most of the ocean with deep sea fishing, whale watching, diving and snorkeling. If shopping is more your style, jump in the trusty rental car and head to trendy Noosa, where you’ll be in heaven among the city’s hip cafés and boutique shops.
Sunshine Coast Climate
The Sunshine Coast is aptly named, so expect plenty of sun. Sitting on the coast in Australia’s Sunshine State, you’ll enjoy an average of seven hours of sun daily, even in winter. Be prepared by keeping sunscreen, water and a hat in your car hire for day trips. Hot summers and warm winters are the norm, with summer temperatures peaking in the mid-thirties while a cold winter’s evening can get down to seven. Rainfall is most common in early summer (December through February). Warmed by the strong unyielding sun, our beaches are warm enough to swim in year-round.
Local Accommodation
Whether you plan to stay in an upscale hotel, a seaside resort or a youth hostel, there is something for everyone along the Sunshine Coast. The entire coastline is dotted with wonderful accommodation options at reasonable prices. To explore the entire region, stay between Moolooba and Morcoola, then you can hop in the rental car and head north or south for day trips.
Nearby Destinations
Take your Sunshine Coast car rental south of the Sunshine Coast to see the striking Glass House Mountains. Down south is also where you’ll explore the remote hinterland towns of Maleny and Montville. If you take your car hire a few kilometres north of Noosa Heads, you can find the stunning multi-coloured sand dunes, Teewah Coloured Sands.
