Sunshine Coast

Another beautiful weekend, another family camping trip. This time we went to the Sunshine Coast. The trip should have taken 2 hours by car from Gold Coast, but we spent extra 30 minutes in a traffic jam past the Gateway Bridge. Next time, we will try the toll-free route through Brisbane. We stayed in Maroochydore, or Maroochy for short. Some of the places have very peculiar names: there is Bli Bli, Mooloolaba, and even Dicky Beach. No worries.
