Friendship Force Sunshine Coast

How to get there

The Sunshine Coast is approx. 95 km north of Brisbane, our Capital City. We can be reached from Brisbane by road or rail but not air because of the short distance.

Most International Journey ambassadors would be advised to fly into Sydney and then fly direct to the Maroochy Airport in the centre of the Sunshine Coast (International airport code – MCY) where you would be picked up by your host for a short trip to their residence. Both Virgin Australia and Jetstar have multiple flights daily from Sydney and Melbourne. (737’s & A320’s).

If your International flight terminates in Brisbane your best option is to travel to the Sunshine Coast by bus as there are no flights between Brisbane and the Sunshine Coast. Cost is about $50 pp. single $45 pp double. 

For a large group a charter bus may be cheaper and may be  arranged by the Inbound Host Coordinator. Your JC would need to arrange this with our host coordinator prior to the Journey and you would be advised of the consequent costs.
