An inquest into the disappearance and death of Sunshine Coast schoolboy Daniel Morcombe will resume for two days in December.

The 13-year-old was abducted from a bus stop and murdered in 2003.

Brett Peter Cowan is serving a life sentence after being convicted of Daniel's murder, after a lengthy and complex police operation.

An inquest into Daniel's death was adjourned before Cowan was arrested, but the Morcombe family's lawyer Peter Boyce says his parents Bruce and Denise want the coroner to examine some aspects of the police investigation.

"Bruce and Denise aren't unhappy with the police, they're very happy with the investigation," Mr Boyce told ABC radio on Tuesday.

"But there are some matters that perhaps need some attention so no one else has to go through what they've been through."

The annual Day for Daniel walk, organised by the Morcombes to raise awareness about child safety, will be held on Friday.
