A bumper Sunshine Coast events program is proving a major winner for local tourism, with Henzells’ holiday letting business Accom Caloundra riding the crest of the wave.
Eight major events are scheduled between now and November, with the Caloundra Music Festival taking centre stage on the southern Sunshine Coast.
Accom Caloundra Holiday Team Leader Danielle Smithson says accommodation was already nearly fully booked for the music and cultural showpiece from September 30 to October 3.
“The forward booking trend for this year’s music festival has been exceptionally strong with people from throughout South East Queensland and interstate getting in early so they don’t miss out,’’ Danielle said.
“It’s becoming so popular that people just rebook for the next year once they leave. We manage around 100 holiday rentals in Kings Beach and the surrounding area which will be totally booked out for the music festival,’’ she said.
Accom Caloundra is working closely with tourism entities Sunshine Coast Events and Visit Sunshine Coast to spread the word about the region’s exciting events program.
Accom Caloundra offers a range of incentives for people to book during events time, including discounts of up to 20% on holiday accommodation.
Here’s just a small snapshot of the local events coming our way, providing the perfect incentive to visit beautiful Caloundra and stay for a holiday. The Sunshine Coast Marathon (Aug 21); Australian Motocross Championships (Aug 27-28); Ironman World Championships (Sept 4), Music and Visual Arts Festival (Sept 10), Caloundra Music Festival (Sept 30 to Oct 3), Australian Police and Emergency Services Games (Sept 28 to Oct 15), Wanderlust Sunshine Coast (Oct 20-23), Nutri-Grain Ironman and Ironwoman Series (Nov 28-29).
