Route Numbering:

General Information:

State Route 6 is an arterial route linking the Sunshine Coast hinterland with the coast. It's a mix of rural and suburban roadway, passing through farmland, bushland, rural, residential, commercial and light industrial areas.

The route takes a circuitous routing, and is not always the most direct route between towns.

The UBD Refidex 33rd Brisbane, Sunshine Coast & Gold Coast street directory published in 1989, refers to a State Route 8 duplex between Maroochydore Rd (SR8) at Maroochydore and Buderim Av (now former SR8) at Alexandra Headland. Apparently there was also an ALT-SR6 route along the former State Route 6 route through Currimundi, Dicky Beach, Moffat Beach and Caloundra, along Buderim St, Cooroy St, Beerburrum St, Elizabeth St, Buccleugh St, Maltman St North, Regent St, Bowman Rd and Caloundra Rd
