The 100km of Sunshine Coast is bursting end-to-end with all sorts of adventures and real nature experiences. And we want to send four lucky Explorers there to check it out for themselves, for real!

Send Me to The Sunny Coast

If there’s one thing East Coasters have been missing this summer it’s the long days of endless heart-warming sunshine. Sure it’s been there in glimpses, but the classic Aussie summer has had to be grasped at in between drizzly days and thunderstorms. 

But there’s one place where the sun shines all summer (if not year) long – the Sunshine Coast, for real. 



There’s more to the Sunshine Coast than just luxurious resorts, high end restaurants, and downtown Noosa. The Sunshine Coast is dripping in real nature experiences, from the show stopping coastline and reefs to the Glass House Mountains and flourishing rainforest. There’s no shortage of wild places here.

And to prove just how real the beauty of the Sunshine Coast is, we’re giving one lucky Explorer (and three of their mates) the chance to win an action-packed getaway to check it out for themselves – for real. 

We’ll fly you to the Sunshine Coast, put you up in a villa at The Point Coolum for five days (with an ocean view of course) and send you on all the best adventures the Sunshine Coast has to offer. 

How does kayaking the Noosa Everglades sound? How about snorkelling the Sunreef? Or maybe you’d prefer to take on the treetop challenge?
