Our resort was recognised and recommended as the place to stay on the Sunshine Coast in the most recent edition of The Weekend Australian newspaper. The author, Susan Kurosawa, goes to detail all of the benefits of the amazing Sunshine Coast location in the Travel + Luxury column. Here’s what she had to say:
“A region with such a confident name is a magnet for migrating southerners during colder months. IT doesn’t matter if there’s a breeze ruffling the cappuccino foam at alfresco cafes along Noosa’s Hastings Street strip. It’s the 21C water temps in winter and perpetual feel of holiday that make the “Sunny Coast” such a drawcard. It’s not all about the sea, however. The hinterland towns of Montville and Maleny offer chic shopping, patisseries shops and gelato bars, botanical walk and rainforest-fringed waterfalls. There’s even a winery at Montville, Flame Hill Vineyard, with temperate climate plantings. Picnic in the vines, anyone? Back by the coast, dip or paddle at Noosa Main Beach, Coolum, Mudjimba or Mooloolaba; take a boat tour from Noosaville, have a round of golf. Then there’s the joy of spotting humpback whales on their annual migration north. Leviathans have always known a thing or two about spending winter in warmer climes.
