Sunco Motors is a family owned business, servicing the motoring needs of Sunshine Coast residents for over 25 years Ray & Gail Jones have been serving the Sunshine Coast community since 1993, delivering premium quality new and used cars across a diverse range of brands including Holden, Hyundai, Nissan, LDV, MG, Jeep, Chrysler and more recently Audi & Volvo. As a family run business centres around community spirit, Ray and Gail’s daughter, Rebecca Jones in more recent years has teamed up with her father and taken over the reins of the business now working as Dealer Principal. As Sunco Motors readies itself for further growth, it relies on its committed hardworking staff. Many of which have been with the company for over 10 years such as Mike Mulry, who has been a valued member of staff since Sunco Motors first opened its doors 26 years ago.

Throughout the last 26 years, Ray & Gail have seen substantial growth within Sunco Motors. Coming from humble beginnings to now extending its local footprint to 6 dealerships, and after the recent acquisition of Audi & Volvo, nine brands.” “We place a large emphasis on the word “local,” 98 per cent of our business goes to local mums and dads on the Sunshine Coast, and all of our employees are local. It is important that when we give back, we are giving back to our local people, local families and children, and of course our local four paws animal rescue.” As the Sunshine Coast readies itself for the expediential growth in the coming future, Sunco Motors will be expanding and redeveloping their offerings to further support the community throughout that time.

hinterland swimming holes Beach there, done that? The Sunshine Coast has amazing natural beauty and secret (not-so-secret) swimming holes to enjoy when temperatures start to rise. A word of caution first, do not dive into rock pools, no matter how deep they may seem. Swim with a friend or groups and use caution after heavy rainfall. Finally, do not swim if water is flowing swiftly, especially if spilling into lower pools. Wappa Falls, Yandina

Just outside Yandina, Wappa Falls provides a relaxing place to unwind including a big grassy area for kids and a playground. An easy walk past the dam will bring you to Wappa Falls where there are cool rock pools for swimming and usually loads of wildlife including turtles and birds. Take Nambour-Yandina Road and turn onto Wappa Falls Road. Turn into Wappa Dam (past Wappa Falls Observatory). Booloumba Falls, Conondale

Booloumba Falls (meaning butterfly in Gubbi Gubbi language) is a popular waterhole which spills over multiple rock pools into one large pool at the base. However, it can be a little bit tricky to both find and access: you’ll need a 4WD and some general idea of where you’re headed. Follow Booloumba Creek Road (off Maleny-Kenilworth Road) until it becomes gravel and reaches the Conondale National Park entrance.

When it’s time to get away from the beach, it’s time to head to Kondalilla Falls just outside Mapleton. Gubbi Gubbi language for ‘rushing water’, the falls produce a unique swimming hole area suitable for the whole family. The Falls circuit will take 2-3 hours to complete and includes over 100 steps so take your time and enjoy the scenery both on the way in and back out. Take Flaxton Drive onto Kondalilla Falls Road and follow for about 2km to the car park. Gardener’s Falls, Maleny

Off Obi Lane South, Gardener’s Falls is an easy 10 minute walk from the carpark, taking you alongside the creek to a waterhole oasis. There’s also a rope swing for the brave. Turn off the Maleny-Landsborough Road about 3km from Maleny town centre. Follow Obi Lane South for 1.5km. Kondalilla Falls, Montville. Tourism and Events Queensland

Drive past all camping and day-use areas until you reach the fourth and final area, where an incline to the left is accompanied by a sign pointing (roughly) to Booloumba Falls. From here it’s another 10 or so kilometres to reach the car park and day-use area. Artists Cascades, Conondale

The little-known Artists Cascades are small cascades which flow into a large rock pool, perfect for hot summer days. From Booloumba Creek day use area, allow plenty of time (plus water, food, hat and sunscreen) for a 5km trek the guide to the sunshine coast and noosa hinteRLand 2020
