If you’re anything like us and tend to hang out between Melbourne and Sydney, do yourselves a favour; step out of your comfort zone and get to Maroochydore on the Sunshine Coast. If only we had known this hidden gem would be a two hour flight from our home town of Adelaide, we’d be there every chance we could. Current status: booking a flight to QLD right now.
