USC’s main campus at Sippy Downs is 15 minutes (by car) inland from several of Australia’s most renowned beaches and popular tourist destinations at Maroochydore, Alexandra Headlands, and Mooloolaba. Leafy hinterland areas such as Buderim, Maleny, and Montville offer bushwalks and fine dining.
Each of these areas offers accommodation at a range of price points, from hotels and resorts to bed and breakfasts. Airbnb listings start at as little as A$50 per night.
But make sure you plan your journey carefully, checking the distance between your accommodation and the campus, particularly if you are planning on using public transport. The Sunshine Coast is a sprawling region and not all areas are close by to the campus.
The CMS has organised a special accommodation rate for conference delegates at the Mantra on Mooloolaba. For booking at these special rates refer to Mantra booking information below:
