2008 trip day 7 – Sunshine Coast Bound

I started the day heading North From Tweed Heads and finished in the Blackall range.

Arriving on the freeway into the southern suburbs of Brisbane, I took the south moreton tourist drive. I stoped for a short while at the Koala Bushland Reserve.


This road then struck out for the coast. I stopped at this point with a light house. Strangely that night I would see it on TV.

I then headed up over the gateway bridge an up to the Sunshine Coast. There is much more freeway than there was last time, and the old bits of highway have been renamed. I stopped at the main lookout for the glass house mountains.

Up on the Blackall range the woman in the Tourist Information Centre was a great help in finding a reasonably priced place to stay, at Flaxton in the end.


At the end of the day I headed into Montville for the last hour of shopping. Unfortunately photographers are not very welcome in this place.
