I had a look at the hotel / apartment prices in Coolum for the dates you mentioned.
very expensive. I'm guessing its because that is right before school holidays start.
I'd probably look at staying in Mooloolaba, Maroochydore, or Alexandra Headlands. The zoo shuttle picks up from all of these places.
Of all of them Mooloolaba would be my pick. Lots of nice restaurants, great walking beach and path along the beach. Grocery store if you need that.
It would be cheaper to stay there and use a shuttle to get there from the airport then it would to stay at Coolum.
This is the shuttle website I looked at
So $15 each person, each way. Bargain !
Let me know if you find a hotel / apartment in Mooloolaba you like the look of and I'll let you know what I think. I know the area pretty well.
I would probably look at booking soon though if they are definitely going because it will book up quickly due to the school holidays.
Hope that helps
