I went to school in Queensland. A school called the University of the Sunshine Coast. If you stay on Res you are like a 20 bus ride from the beaches. But everyone there pretty much surfs! So you can always find a ride!  The Sunny Coast is like an hour from Brisbane if you want a huge party scene. But the sunny coast scene can let you have fun and surf in the morning if you pass out on the beach.
Here is a tip.. Kawana.. good surf spot!
