What's on at the Sunshine Coast
THERE'S an action-packed few days in store for adventurers who want to make the most of the Sunshine Coast this weekend.
First, why not enjoy flowers, demonstrations, plant sales and a sausage sizzle at the Q150 October Orchid Bonanza? This year's theme is "Stepping Back in Time", so step back and enjoy a mini trip through the history of the orchid.
The festivities will be held at Bribie Island State High School, Friday 9am to 4pm. Cost is $4 per person, which includes snacks. For more information phone Lynn on (07) 3410 1919.

On Saturday, the Garapine Downhill Enduro Race family day will provide entertainment for the whole family. Kids can not only try out new tracks, but also get a lesson from a professional coach. Sessions run from midday to 2pm.
Then, on Sunday, enjoy the event's official race day, which consists of a flat out timed downhill run and then competitors trying to avoid penalty points as they climb back to the top of the hill. Racing begins at 10.30am.
