Sunshine Coast Tourism offers media assistance for qualified journalists, bloggers, and influencers interested in experiencing the lifestyle and hospitality of the region.

We appreciate and respect your intention to create inspiring media coverage to share with your audiences in broadcast, print, and digital mediums. Please note that the level of support we can provide varies and depends on our current resources, season, and target markets, as well as your assignment and previous coverage.

Note that we have currently paused media visits to the Sunshine Coast over the summer months. We are still happy to provide information, visual assets, and help of that nature. If you have an idea for a story for publication in the fall/winter season, please reach out.

  • Images and b-roll
  • General information, story ideas, and contacts
