Book your place here.

The Feb 2020 Sunshine Writing Lab will run at The Sebel Maroochydore, on the gorgeous Sunshine Coast. From their website:

Perfectly positioned with spectacular views of the Pacific Ocean and close to the region’s best restaurants, shopping and tourist attractions, The Sebel Maroochydore is a relaxing seaside getaway just 15 minutes from Sunshine Coast airport.

This contemporary Maroochydore resort is right on the beach providing guests with direct access to the beautiful, patrolled surf beach of Maroochydore. You are also only a hop skip and a jump away from local restaurants, cafes, beach shops and the Sunshine Coast, offering a great location and an ideal base for visitors wanting to explore the region.


14-20 Aerodrome Road, Maroochydore, Queensland, Australia

Staying Longer?

If you’re from out of town and would like to add a day or two to explore Maroochydore or the Sunshine Coast a little more, you’ll find lots to do here. That’s if you can be tempted away from the beach and the local cafes!
