A world of special Sunshine Coast Deals

Vanessa Bussoletti

Visit Sunshine Coast has partnered with Escape Travel to launch a major new campaign offering a wide range of activities and accommodation deals over the winter period and beyond.

The booking validity period is from 5 to 26 April 2017.

The campaign, with the tagline ‘I want to feel refreshed’ is one of the first campaigns launched under Escape Travel’s new ‘I want’ brand campaign. The special offers will be extensively promoted in the media as well as through Escape Travel’s 165 national stores to entice people to plan a Sunshine Coast holiday.

Great Beach Drive

The deals cover the full Sunshine Coast region from Caloundra in the south to Rainbow Beach in the north.

Visit Sunshine Coast CEO, Simon Latchford, said “We know visitors are seeking diversity and the Sunshine Coast is more than just stunning beaches: we have wonders of nature, fresh local food, exhilarating events and immersive encounters in abundance.

“The exciting thing about this campaign is the deals not only feature accommodation but tours and activities such as swimming with humpback whales and exploring the Great Beach Drive as well as event packages during Caloundra Music Festival and Noosa Food and Wine,” said Mr Latchford.
