Strawberries on Gold Coast beach ‚Äúcoolest”

 

Suckling on a sweet and succulent strawberry has many Aussies salivating this summer.

The survey conducted by SilverNeedle Hospitality for their “COOL Summer” campaign asked Australia to reveal their favourite ways of staying cool this summer.

Fresh lemonade was just behind fresh strawberries for a favourite cooling down food, and Aussies voted a quick dip in the pool was the best way to stay cool in summer.

The ever-popular beach was still a firm favourite for a “cool” day out with almost half of the survey respondents opting for the sand in their toes as opposed to a water park or a trip to the zoo.

The Gold Coast topped the results as the ultimate summer getaway with 35.7%, closely followed by Noosa. Poor Alice Springs fell way behind with only 2.9% choosing Australia’s belly.

The summer campaign offers guests “cool” holiday getaways from as little as $82 when they book a hotel at any of those in the SilverNeedle network within Asia and Australia until March next year.

If you happen to stay at one of SilverNeedle boutique hotels (Chifely, Penrith, Country Comfort, Terrigal, Australis, Noosa  or Australis Soveriegn) in the next few weeks, be sure to claim your FREE ice block, available in numerous  delicious flavours.

What could be cooler?
