Staying at a hotel just to sleep in a nice room? Nah, staying at a hotel to make full use of all the incredible amenities, like a takeaway picnic pack from @​reefhousepalmcove 🌴🧺 These perfect packs can be enjoyed wherever your heart desires, whether that's on the beach, by the pool, in-room or on a day out exploring our beautiful region ☀️🌊

Rain or shine we still love our hikes! 🥾☀️

There's nothing better than the view from the top of a mountain and you can check out this view on #MountBartleFrere, @queensland’s largest mountain 🌿⛰ If you're not too keen on the 15km trek over the mountain, don't worry, you’re spoilt for choice with a huge range of walks to suit every person & fitness level 🌴🏃🏻‍♀️

⚠️ Remember to check the weather conditions & only set out on hiking adventures when it is safe to do so.

Don’t go to bed too early! Sunset at #KurrimineBeach is worth the wait 🌙💜 This is one of the few places in the region that you can access the reef straight from the shoreline at low tide, making the beach alongside #KingReef the main attraction 🌊 Keep your eye out along the shoreline & you might spot manta rays, turtles & other colourful marine life trawling the shallows 🐠🐢

Not only is Kurrimine Beach home to some incredible sandy shores, but there’s also beachfront accommodation, restaurants, cafes and even a winery 🍷
