Sunshine Coast Toll Roads
Queensland has several toll roads to get around, but the one you'd probably use the most around these parts is the Sunshine Motorway, a 33km Australian motorway on Sunny Coast. If you've ever driven around QLD, then you know that all tolls require fees to pass through. The beauty of the Sunshine Motorway is that it's a low budget motorway since it changes direction from East-West to North-South at the Nicklin Way interchange. Take note that most of the traffic goes through only one lane for each direction, through most of this toll's stretch.
When you're done with your Sunny Coast adventure, take the Sunshine Motorway to explore the amazing towns of Maroochydore and Mooloolaba along the road.
Parking in Sunshine Coast
Remember that parking and other road regulations across Australia are there for a reason. Keep yourself, your passengers, and pedestrians safe by always following the road rules and regulations.
If you see a sign that says "P" alone, that means there's no limit to how long you can park. However if there is a number before "P", that means that you have a time limit for how long you can park in an area. For instance, a sign that says "3P" would tell you that you have a maximum of 3 hours to park your car in that spot.
Discover all that is bright and beautiful in Sunny Coast with a cheap car rental Sunshine Coast service from Alpha Car Hire. Remember: if you can find a better deal for your car, send us the quote and we'll beat the price -- guaranteed!
