Seven Queensland sports presenter Nathan Spurling is lucky enough to put his passion into practice every night. Nathan’s love for sports and being active is perfectly suited to living on the Sunshine Coast.
A Great Day Out for Nathan starts with a sunrise climb up Mount Coolum. It’s a graduated 1.6km hike, or around 30 minutes each way, but the views at the top are well worth the effort. After starting the day on a natural high, the world’s your oyster and the Sunshine Coast offers plenty of activities and beaches to explore. A walk along Mooloolaba beach, with a coffee in hand, is a regular routine for Nathan…and just across the road is one of his favourite hangouts.
Taps Mooloolaba is a craft beer bar, where you can pour your own beer. They have a huge selection of ales and beverages, as well as a delicious menu (Nathan suggests trying the double-double burger – with double beef, bacon, and mac-n-cheese!). Taps also offer live entertainment, board games, giant Jenga and Super Mario Kart so you can re-live your youth with friends. The Sunshine Coast has a great, relaxed, friendly vibe and Nathan wouldn’t want to call any other place home.
