Taking the road less travelled on the Sunshine Coast offers up plenty of surprises.
For day-trippers wanting a hit of nostalgia, they’ll certainly get that and more at Rick’s Café at Palmwoods.
It was once a petrol station but has been transformed into a retro garage right out of the 1950s. There are hot rods, giant burgers, delicious milkshakes and one of Queensland’s biggest whiskey bars upstairs.
Nearby in the town of Woombye you can mix the joys of outdoor camping with the luxuries of home at Starry Nights Luxury Camping. It offers two incredible safari-style suites that are ideal for couples and families. The tents boast a king-size bed, lounge area, kitchenette, fireplace, shower and best of all, complete isolation.
There’s also a guests lounge where you can sit back and relax with a book, enjoy a sauna or play snooker. But best of all, Starry Nights offers just that, spectacular starry nights.
