    Hi,
    Can someone recomend a nice resort near Brisbane where there are plenty of shops / bars close to Australia Zoo and on the beach please?
    We are validating our visa's in Feb and are going to stay in Canberra for most of it but want a week of a 'proper sea side holiday' also before we leave. Been looking at the Sunshine coast area but don't have a clue where. Any advice would be much appreciated.
    Many thanks
    Andy

    Somewhere like, Caloundra, Mooloolabah would be good. Close to Aus Zoo, on the beach you would be about and 1hr and a bit from Brisbane city centre.

    You would find the night scene abit livelier down at the Gold Coast,theres also the theme parks and loads of shopping malls, not forgetting the stunning hinterland a few minutes drive away. Have a look at Ashmore Palms for holiday accommodation although there are lots of other 'tourist' parks dotted around.
    If you have no children one of my fav's is ''The Mouses House' at springbrook.

    Cheers
