The Sunshine Coast is located north of Brisbane and is the third most populated area in the state. The area is a more laid back region with a broad agricultural and tourism industry.
The climate in this area is sub-tropical with mild winters and hot, humid summers. The average annual rainfall on the coast is 1000 to 1400 mm per annum. Most of the rain falls in the summer, often in heavy downfalls and storms resulting in heavy run off. The dry and mild winters are ideal for holiday makes who flock to the region during this time. The rainfall patterns make the Sunshine Coast a perfect place to install a water tank and collect rainfall.
The economy is known for its extensive tourism industry but there is a strong agricultural industry too which includes sugar cane, pineapples and other small scale horticultural crops.
The major cities in the region are Caloundra, Kawana Waters, Maroochydore and Noosa Heads, Nambour, Murgon, Eumundi, Malaney, Gympie, Buderim and Coolum. . These centres are serviced by Bushmans stockists who provide advice on the selection and installation of rainwater tanks.
