Maleny — 3 nights

A large influx of people searching for a cooperative lifestyle migrate to Maleny every year.
Venture out of the city with trips to Mooloolaba (SEA LIFE Sunshine Coast, Boat Tours & Water Sports, &more), Maroochydore Beach (in Maroochydore) and Spas (in Buderim). There's still lots to do: get to know the resident critters at Australia Zoo, browse the eclectic array of goods at Fishermans Road Market, hike along Mary Cairncross Scenic Reserve, and relax in the rural setting at Maleny Dairies.

Planning Maleny trip won't be overwhelming when you use Inspirock's itinerary maker.

Beaches, sun-drenched streets, and a relaxed ambience are the defining elements of Sunshine Coast, a region just north of Brisbane. Having grown rapidly in the 1960s and 1970s, Sunshine Coast became a popular destination for surfers in particular and has now grown into a well-managed city focused on "green" economic development.
