GUIDE TO THE SUNSHINE COAST

Sunshine Coast branch - thanks so much guys, you made hiring a car so easy and the service was fantastic. The car was better than i have received from other BIG name hire companies the last few times i have been to Mooloolaba. Thanking you Greg & Fiona

Hi Colette

 

This is the first time I have ever booked with your company and I am writing to say how impressed I have been with the whole deal.

All my previous trips to Australia have involved the major rental firms, but a friend John Mathews had told me he always gets a vehicle from you and I was impressed - after all he can afford the top prices anyway!

Well, we arrived at the Brisbane airport and there was Dave waiting to meet us.  He took us to the parking area (wheeling Cynthia's trolley) and showed us the car, set up the GPS and said goodbye.  All so very simple and efficient.

We were delighted with the car, a Hyundai Accent, which was quite new and in excellent condition with heaps of boot room for our suitcases and golf clubs.  We enjoyed driving it for the 13 days we were in Queensland.

When we returned it to the airport yesterday afternoon, it was so easy

I will certainly be using your firm on any future trips to Australia!

 

Cheers

Eric Millar

Dear Colette. We have just returned a car after hiring for 3 weeks. We would like to say thank you for everything. The way you responded to our phone inquiries, delivered the car as arranged and all correspondence was indeed timely and very helpful. We would certainly recommend your company to others and we will have no hesitation in returning to hire another car in the future. The care was lovely and clean and very economical to run. I hope you are happy with the way we returned it. Thank you so much. Regards I Howard

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.
