Cameron and I got to spend some quality time together! It was so nice, normally Kyle and I have quality time or we all go out as a family together….not so much one-on-one with the others. Since we did and had lots of fun at Bellingham Maze we are now looking at other attractions where we go together.
Bellingham Maze :: Get Lost
And boy did I ever….Cameron worked out how to get into the Maze and out within next to no time, and was racing ahead – saying “See you soon, Mum”.
After our stay at Pomona Showgrounds we were invited to stay at David’s bosses house. If you ever need a service done on your van and you are in the Sunshine Coast area then I highly recommend that you drop into Suncoast Caravan Repairs.
Not only do they care about their customers, but they also care about their staff. In this day n age its hard to find a boss that really cares about their workers, and yet Jenny and Bruce do.
If you know our family well, you will know that we head to the Beach whenever where ever we can!! And we LOVE the water, it has a calming affect on all of us. Plus its a great way to see Australia – imagine that….driving from Beach to Beach all the way around the Great OZ? That would be the most ideal way to travel/live.
While we stayed at Pomona Showgrounds we had an evening at Noosa Beach. One Friday David knocked off from work early and we decided that it was a perfect way to relax/plus a perfect place to eat Hot Chips for dinner.

Nic Walking Towards Us To Tell Us David Got Dinner
When we travelled down from Bundaberg to the Sunshine Coast we had to find somewhere to stay, and it was not a matter of having a choice of where to go – it was a matter of getting off the hill we were stuck on. And it was a matter of doing what ever it took to get off that hill – we had to rig up a direct fuel line to move off that steep hill, and cruise on down into Pomona Showgrounds for the week.
Actually we ended up staying there for 8 nights (payed for seven and then payed for the extra night) because David needed time to replace all of the fuel lines. We ended up with the most amazing Backyard view ever ::
WOW what a week we have had! We thought the five hour trip from Bundaberg to Sunshine Coast was going to be a breeze, and one that we could take slowly…..guess the universe has other ideas for us.
Travelling from Bundaberg to the Sunshine Coast is a familiar trip for us because we used to live in D’aguilar and then at Glasshouse Mountains. And we used to drive back n forth every Christmas/Easter to David’s Parents. Never ever has it taken so bloody long!
The other day we drove down to Sarina to check out if our Motorhome will be able to fit in the Caravan Park we are moving to. While we were there we walked into the Sarina Tourist Information Centre to find out what we can explore while we are staying there. And what do I find but a brochure on “50 Must Do’s On The Sunshine Coast“…too funny as that is where we have just come from!
Reading The Brochure
While David drives us back to Mackay I start reading the brochure from Sunshine Coast Tourism “50 Must Do’s On The Sunshine Coast” and I start to feel really slack…as we hardly did any of the list!!
Yet we stayed on the Sunshine Coast for over six months (far too long in one place!)
So I thought I would go through the List and Work out what we did see….
1. Australia Zoo – seen as how we lived in the Glasshouse Area in 2010 we had season passes to Australia Zoo and so we didnt make the time to go while staying on the Sunshine Coast. Now I wished we had!
On Saturday (last weekend) I was not in the mood for anything! Actually I so needed some “Vitamin Me” time so instead of doing something for the family (or with the Family) I got David to drop me off to a Raw Food Cafe while he took the boys shopping!
Raw Food Cafe
Its Rawsome Cafe ~
Where the food is live!
We drive past there all of the time as its the back way from Nambour to Davids work, as well as we go past there on our way to shopping! Every time I say “Gosh I so want to try that place” and never do.
Even though we woke up to rain on Sunday morning, we thought that it would clear in time for us to all head to TopShots Maroochydore. Besides we had got our boys so excited that we had to go – no matter what the day was like!
Luckily for all of us the rain held off for most of our time spent there. Actually some of the rides are based around water so it really didnt matter.
Its free to enter TopShots at Maroochydore. All you do is pay for what you want to ride on, and for the mini Golf. I liked the set up – walking through the door it was almost like walking through a disco, with arcade games on one wall and table/seating on the other side. There is also two different courses for Mini Golf – providing 18 holes on each side of Topshots.
Gosh are we having fun Staying At The Sunshine Coast. There is so much for our boys to do, and for them to explore! They are not sure where to go first, and what to do next. We were so lucky to live on acreage for the last 7 months, now we are so lucky to be close to the beaches, and to live in a Caravan Park in our Motorhome. Actually we have found the best Caravan Park on the Sunshine Coast…where we are charged a set fee and not per child!
Staying At The Sunshine Coast
After driving down to the Sunshine Coast area on Wednesday we were all tired. David was more then tired, he was dangerously over tired. I was worried about his driving on the road with the bus, especially considering how late it was in the afternoon when we set off! So on the Thursday David suggested we all take a day off and head to the beach. I have never seen the boys move that fast, nor have that got ready so quickly! We spent nearly all of our time at Coolum Beach, or in the Playground.
