Maroochydoore on the Sunshine Coast

From Byron Bay we pushed past the Gold Coast and Brisbane, dropping all plans to visit the hinterland after weather warnings about hail and severe storms. At one stage I had the windscreen wipers on full speed and couldn’t do more than 60km/h.

We camped beachfront in Maroochydoore to allow us time to explore the area. It is easy to see the appeal of living in this area. We attended worship in Kawana Waters Uniting Church, drove the hills of Buderim, and started with our logistic chores of getting back to reality soon when we arrive home.

Next we were off to Hervey Bay, planning to camp right on the beach in Torquay for a week (our home is still rented out until the first week in April, making it inaccessible).
