Getting a bit bored by all the rain? Or just not in the mood for the warm sun? Here are some things that might help you whether you are in the mood to get active or put your feet up and relax! And all of this can be done at the Sunshine Coast!!

1. Bag a bargain at the markets! Just leave your hostel for a while, grab your recyclable bag and go to one of the markets along the Sunshine Coast. Eumundi, Cooroy or directly in Noosa are some awesome places to find a special souvenir.

3. Dive with grey Nurse Sharks. Not afraid of anything? Looking for some excitement? Just dive into the water of Cooloola, one of the few places in the world where you can swim with large Grey Nurse Sharks.

4. Travel the region by Harley Davidson. For the ultimate freedom adventure! Cruise through the beautiful scenery of the Sunshine Coast either on a Harley Davidson or a 3 wheeled trike.
