The Sunshine Coast is located approximately one hour north of Brisbane on Queensland's south eastern coast. If you are flying in, you can fly directly to the Sunshine Coast airport (located in Mudjimba) or fly to Brisbane and to the Sunshine Coast via coach, hire car of train.

When catching a train from Brisbane airport, you can board the Airlink train from either the domestic or international terminals. Be sure to change to the Landsborough, Nambour or Gympie line once you reach Central station. Buses from Landsborough station will connect you directly to major tourist regions on the Coast, including Caloundra, Mooloolaba, Maroochydore, and Noosa.

Train lines connect hinterland stations, from Glasshouse Mountains, north to Gympie. Key attractions along the line include:
Beerwah - Australia Zoo
Landsborough - bus connections to the main tourist regions on the Coast, including Caloundra, Mooloolaba, Maroochydore, and Noosa.
Eudlo - Chenrezig Institute (a Tibetan Buddhist retreat)
Nambour - a major business district, with commercial facilities and the Sunshine Coast's main hospital
Eumundi - Eumundi Markets

The main public transport service operating on the Sunshine Coast are buses. Because the Sunshine Coast region covers a broad area geographically, you may find you need to transfer buses during your journey to get from point to point. The translink website provides a great journey planner tool to assist you in finding the right bus. Buses on the Sunshine Coast are not as frequent as some other major regions and cities, however with some planning ahead, they are an effective public transport option.
