I'm in the early stages of planning a trip to Australia next August and would like to get some bodyboarding into the itenerary.
Plan at the moment is Sydney around 11th-15th August, then up to Cairns for a week and then down to Sunshine coast from about 22nd -29th August. So 2 main questions..
Where best to stay on Sunshine coast for a UK couple in their 30's who want to experience Australia, catch a bit of fun bodyboarding on safe sandy beaches (i am fairly confident on a bodyboard but my wife only surfed for 1st time last year on honeymoon...and loved it!)
We would like to spend the week with a few beach days, a few trips out to zoo's, natural scenery etc. We don't really like museums or shopping and we would like to spend the evenings in pubs/cafes/bars with a good atmosphere, not bothered about nightclubs really.
