Queensland gets thousands of tourists each year, who go there for the outdoor lifestyle and breathtaking views. The coastal area in the south-eastern part of Queensland is known as the Sunshine Coast Australia.

It's on the Pacific coast and is a magnet for the world's surfers and sun worshippers who want to relax on its beaches. The Mooloolaba beach is famous for its massive waves. There something there for the whole family to be entertained.

Another famous place to visit is Australia Zoo, which was managed by Steve Irwin, the Crocodile Hunter. Since his death, the zoo has been run by his widow, Terri, and you can see her there taking care of the many idigenous species that are kept there, like the koala and kangaroo.

For those that want to see marine life on the Sunshine Coast Australia, the place to visit is the Underwater World Marine Park. It's at Mooloolaba, and has a moving walkway that goes underneath the shark tunnel in the aquarium. There are shows with performing seals and informative talks about local wildlife. Other animals on view include otters, freshwater crocodiles, crabs, and a stingray. The park also serves as a rehabilitation facility for dolphins, seals, turtles and dugongs.

There is a working farm near Nambour called the Big Pinapple which has many activities, like rides, restaurants and souvenir shops. You can tour the pinapple plantations on a miniature train also. It's a great wasy to find out about the farm.

There are other rides on the farm, like the Nutmobile, as in Macadamia Nuts, which are also grown there. It's a place you must visit when going to Ausrtralia's Sunshine Coast. It also has its own small zoo where kids are allowed to feed the farm animals.

The Buderim Ginger factory is a working factory, design to take you back to your childhood with numerous exhibits including a gingerbread house. Visitors can tour the factory and eat in it's restaurants and at the end of the day take away any of the ginger product on offer.

The Sunshine coast of Australia has it's share of National Parks and golf courses to. So there really is something to cater for all.
