November Newsletter 2015

Welcome to our November Newsletter 2015. We  enjoyed the spectacle of a couple of early storms in the latter part of October. Some of our guests really enjoy the splendour of a good lightning show over the sea!

We managed to get an hour to visit the Buderim Garden Festival. It was fabulous – the flowers and plants entered for competition was wide ranging. There were also some very knowledgeable people selling plants. We were delighted to see the garden photo competition entries and art inspired by gardens. We have made a note for 2016 already

The Sunshine Coast Sky Divers have a permit which allows them to land on Mooloolaba Beach for the next few months. Their first commercial skydive onto Mooloolaba Beach caused great excitement at the end of September. The tandem skydives onto a beach are a popular way to celebrate a milestone.

We want to revisit some local businesses this month as they keep making our guests happy! The first one is Ebony fashions. Leisa doubled the size of her shop last November and also extended the range of accessories and fashions. They have lots of repeat clients from all round the world who have them as a must do when they’re in Mooloolaba. Whether you’re looking for an outfit for a special occasion, or smart casual wear for a cruise this is the place to go. At the moment they have a great range of fascinators ready for Melbourne Cup festivities.

The other shop which continually has interesting home wares, gifts and beachwear is Out Vogue. Collette has an eye for the unusual finishing touch – like interesting vases and cushions. The extensive range of necklaces also gives a nice finish to an outfit. Wo

Jennifer attended a high tea at The Edge which is on the wharf near Sea Life Underwater World and was blown away by the effort Heather and her team had gone to, to ensure the success of the event. The tables were set and decorated beautifully and the food set out (in abundance) attractively. Heather will cater for groups of all sizes who want to enjoy her high teas.


Some people have them for a special occasion, a fund raiser, a charity event or just because they want one. The most amazing thing was that only the sandwiches could not be eaten by those who required food to be gluten free – the canapés, savouries, cakes and scones were all gf – and totally delicious.


The next Sunshine Coast Choral Society concert will be “A French Christmas” at Caloundra Uniting Church on 13th December. This concert will feature Saint-Saens’ “Christmas Oratorio” and traditional carols with a French connection. Adrian King will conduct the choir, while the fabulous Natasha Koch will accompany the choir on piano and organ.
