Finally, after quite a few years being separated by COVID and a few wet years, summer has well and truly come back to the region, and it has been welcomed with glorious beach days where the sight of cabanas and beach umbrellas have been the main view along the shoreline. Local photographer Kerry Mulgrew snapped this view of Coolum Main Beach and said – “The festive season has blessed us with stunning weather, perfect for getting out with my camera and capturing the holiday spirit at Coolum.” If you would like to see more of Kerry’s beautiful local photography, please visit www.kezignphotography.com.au where you can find lots of great prints for sale which include images from Noosa to Coolum amongst others.
