Longing for warm beach days, the feeling of sunshine on your skin and falling asleep to the sound of crashing waves? It’s time to Immerse yourself on Queensland’s Sunshine Coast!

If the last few years have taught us anything, it’s to appreciate the little things.

And no, we’re not talking about taking a nap in your lunch break while working from home (those days are over friend!)

We’re talking about diving under a sparkling wave, walking barefoot on the beach and catching up with your mates over a cold craft beer.

And now that travel has opened back up across the Tasman we don’t just want to tell you about it, we want to show you - for real!

Winter is the perfect time to ditch the cold and immerse yourself on the Sunshine Coast.

Come face-to-face with a Humpback whale as they migrate along the coastline on a Swim With Whales experience with Sunreef Mooloolaba.

Listen to the sounds of the rainforest from your own private hot tub on a Hinterland escape.

Food lovers and those looking to explore their creative side will be spoiled for choice with a number of arts and culture festivals popping up across the region during the cooler months.

Plenty of new things have happened since you’ve been here last too. We’re now the Craft Beer Capital of Australia (with more than 21 craft breweries to explore!) and have some great new restaurants bursting with local flavours.

With Air New Zealand relaunching their twice-weekly direct service from Auckland to Sunshine Coast Airport from 9 July, now is the perfect time to plan your escape.

So what are you waiting for? Pack your togs , jandals and sunnies, it’s time to immerse yourself on the Sunshine Coast!
