Summer Experiences You Can’t Miss

Summer Experiences You Can’t Miss

Make the most of your summer!

By Emmy-Lou McKean | 15th December 2016

This season is set to be a scorcher and there’s nothing better than soaking up the sun with some of the Sunshine State’s best summer experiences.

From luxurious Friday afternoon drinks on the Gold Coast to relaxed Sunday sessions in Noosa, here are the ultimate things to do in Queensland this summer.

CRYSTAL BLUE SUMMERS

There’s only one way to truly enjoy summer and that’s on the water. Cruise into the weekend in style with QT’s Crystal Blue Summers. Until February 28 2017, you can spend every Friday evening lounging aboard a luxurious 80-foot Crystal Blue Super Yacht and discovering the Gold Coast’s world-famous waterways, champagne flute in hand.

Once you head back to QT Gold Coast, you can enjoy a drink in the Stingray Lounge before staying the night in a QT Dream Bed and waking up to a brekky for two in the Bazaar Restaurant! This sounds like summer to me!

SEA LIFE EXPERIENCES

Sea Life Sunshine Coast gives you the opportunity to get up close and personal with seals, sharks and other sea life. The experience packages range from one-on-one experiences to becoming a trainer for the day.

RAINBOW BEACH HORSE RIDING

Riding a horse along a beach is a bucket-list experience for many. Explore the tropical beauty of Rainbow Beach on a five-kilometre beach ride that caters to all levels of horse riding ability.

AQUA DONUT

This has to be one of the coolest ideas out! Aqua Donuts feature a gas BBQ station surrounded by seating for up to 10 people in (you guessed it) a donut shape! You can play your music wirelessly through the Bluetooth sound system and watch the shade umbrella light up with LED lights as the sun sets. And the best part about this floating version of a Sunday session? It runs on an electric motor and travels no faster than nine kilometres per hour so no boating license is required.

SIRROMET WINERY TOUR
