The Sunshine Coast airport is located just north of the Maroochydore River and is considered the gateway to Sunshine Coast and further into the many tourist destinations that extend north up into Queensland. This airport has undergone a major reconstruction within the past decade and the $9.2 million that was spent has made the airport larger and better for all of the over 800,000 passengers that are processed through the airport each and every year. Additionally, the Sunshine Coast Airport offers domestic and international flights going out and coming into the Sunshine Coast area.
