Hi

My vote would be Sunshine Beach between Caloundra and Noosa Heads, about 2 hours north of Brisbane.

No beaches in Brisbane, except a nice man-made beach at Southbank on the river.

I recommend you head either 1 hour north or south of the Brisbane CBD, to the perfect beaches of the Sunshine or Gold Coasts.

Not too sure what a "bach" is but I am sure you will find it !!

hi there,, we don't have bach's like NZ does.

How much do you want to spend? and are you looking for a quiet chill out place or more of a tourist area to chill out in?

Hi Firebucket

A bach is a cottage or holiday home. (If you were to compare here, think our old fibro beach shacks.)

They often get passed down through generations, some are old and rustic , some are magnificient. They are seen all over NZ.

Hmmmm... well all the bachs on the gold coast would be about 15 to 50 storeys or so >:-)

In other words you wont find any laid back (surf) beach within about 150 km of Brisbane

I would vote for sunshine beach also. Was thinking of that when I saw the lost in noosa header
