Alternatively, you could also stay in nearby tourist towns like Maleny, Caloundra & Mooloolaba, just keep in mind that they’re between 20-30 minutes away.

We HIGHLY recommend pre-booking and pre-paying for transport regardless of where you stay. We are happy to help with transport provider recommendations.
