Sunshine, beaches, mountains, villages and towns
We are a retired couple, Pat and Chas. We have had 6 successful home exchanges in previous trips.
We live in the town of Caloundra, on Queensland’s ‘Sunshine Coast’, with its dramatically contrasting diversity of golden beaches, sub-tropical rainforests, eucalypt woodlands, rolling hinterland ranges, bays, rivers, lakes and backwaters, all full of Australia’s unique wildlife.
Our home is a cosy, 2-storey, 3-bedroom town-house in a friendly, quiet complex, only a short walk from the beach. We have a swimming pool and tennis court, and are situated beside an 18-hole golf course. Our home provides all the comforts and amenities for a relaxing holiday including our car and our campervan.
We are close to bus routes, trains and a local airport. Our state capital city, Brisbane, and the point of arrival for overseas visitors, is only 90 km to the south.
Our local activities include national park walking/canoeing, wildlife spotting including whale-watching tours, most sports including golf, swimming, fishing, surfing, snorkelling, diving sites, sail-boarding, gliding and parachuting, plus visits to tourist destinations such as Australia Zoo and Underwater World.
European settlement villages entice the visitor with local history, arts, crafts, restaurants, cafes and markets. Most locations have easy access by car and there are many guided tours. The climate is subtropical and as its name implies, the Sunshine Coast enjoys approx. 280 days of sunshine a year.
