The silly season is upon us, and if you’d rather be sunning yourself in a tropical paradise than hitting the shops on Christmas Eve we have good news. It’s not too late to book a last minute escape without breaking the bank! Here are some ideas from Skyscanner Australia…
Many people have their summer getaways locked in before July, but for some of us, the festive season creeps up without warning every year. If you’re hoping to get away from it all this summer, don’t lose hope. There are still plenty of bargain holidays to be found for the last minute organiser (or as we like to say spontaneous organiser…)
Here’s a roundup of some of the best holidays in Australia you can book right now to relax over the summer.
For some fun in the sun, fly into the Sunshine Coast and head to Noosa. Take advantage of Noosa National Park and walk some of the coastal trails or head to the summit for an excellent view. There are many beautiful beaches on offer for you to cool down or spend an afternoon with a book.
Hastings Street offers a variety of restaurants and cafes as well as shops ranging from high-end fashion to affordable surf wear.
Sending you a virtual post card from beautiful Noosa Main Beach! ???? An essential when visiting Noosa is a trip to Noosa Main Beach, one of the few beaches along Australia’s east coast that faces north, providing a protected calm space to swim.

On your way to or from Sunshine Coast airport, consider stopping at Australia Zoo for a close encounter with some crocodiles, Steve Irwin style.
Anchor Hotel Noosa has free wifi, free parking and a swimming pool within a five-minute drive of Hastings Street.
