Hello Sunshine | Summer 2023/24 | HS13

Published on December 2023

Summer is here, and it’s the time of year the Sunshine Coast comes alive with locals and visitors alike!

From long, leisurely days enjoying our captivating beaches to time spent exploring our leafy hinterland, we’re spoilt for choice.

And of course, there’s no shortage of events and activities on offer – from family fun at Sunshine Plaza and Sunshine Coast Turf Club; special offers  at the newly renovated Novotel Sunshine Coast resort (the luxe location for our fashion shoot on page 80!); fantastic foodie experiences from much-loved local restaurants such as Bella Venezia, Spice Bar, Flo’s Creperie and Dee Den; and exciting arts and cultural events from Caloundra to Montville and beyond, there’s plenty to discover. 

I’m delighted to be the editor of Hello Sunshine, and look forward to sharing many more stories of the amazing people and businesses that make up the fabric of this magical region (many of whom we cheered on at the Sunshine Coast Business Awards!).

We love supporting our clients and local business owners, and we hope you’ll join us in strengthening community connections by choosing to shop local for food, fashion, gifts, drinks and more wherever possible this holiday season!

Here’s to a happy, safe and SPIRITED summer – see you in 2024!

Willy the gorgeous Green Sea Turtle was released into the pristine waters off Mooloolaba by the @sealifesunshinecoast team this morning, who’ve been helping him recover in their Turtle Rehabilitation Centre for the past few months.

Willy was discovered on Marcoola Beach in September by the Coolum Coastal Care team in a critical condition and covered in leeches.

But today, thanks to the care he’s received from the legends at SEA LIFE, he’s happy, healthy and seemed super-keen to get back to his natural ocean habitat. Enjoy being free, Willy!
