Spring – still, crisp air, fresh flowers, beautiful days.

Take my dog down to Picnic Point for a swim and walk

When friends and family come and stay, what do you recommend for them to do during their stay on the Sunshine Coast?
Go shopping at Kawana Shoppingworld of course!

What is your idea of a perfect day spent on the Sunshine Coast from dawn to dusk?   
Waking up, having breakfast at a nice little café, spending some time at Picnic Point with our dog, relaxing at home by the pool in the beautiful weather and going out to dinner at the Buderim Tavern.
