I'm a Sunshine Coast journalist who jumped out of a lengthy mainstream media career 18 months ago to do some hearty work for the soul. A pescatarian sharing with you her secrets on our little piece of coast paradise.
SUNSHINE Coast local Laura Di Mambro is counting down the days until thousands of guests start to arrive on her doorstep for a "life-changing" Queensland' festival in her home town. Final preparations are under way for The Conscious Life Festival, a jam-packed two-day program of events fast becoming one of the most comprehensive health and wellbeing carnivals on Queensland's calendar year.
Five months after Mother Nature forced a last minute reschedule, Peregian Beach event organiser Laura Di Mambro is in passionate anticipation for the moment she can connect her guests with 121 good friends – who just happen to be among the most celebrated and recognized health and wellbeing practitioners, performers and educators in the country.
Brighten up your weekend
"The Sunshine Coast is such a health conscious paradise - where better to bring all the wonderful modalities and specialists under one roof to showcase what unique and diverse products and services many business and individuals have to offer," Ms Di Mambro says.
"The health and wellbeing industry is one of the fastest growing in the world. The Sunshine Coast is proof of this growing phenomena with so many individuals devoting their time and energy to improving their health and that of others."
In its fourth year, The Conscious Life Festival boasts its biggest ever number of exhibitors whose single focus is to show you how to improve your health and wellbeing - in ways both imaginable and unimaginable: whether it's for you, your family or the environment in which you live. Professionals, students, Mums and Dads from all backgrounds and walks of life will shake off their every day chaos in a quest to explore alternative methods of better health, happiness, well-being and self-development.
Even those especially "spirited" little ones aren't forgotten, with the exclusive The Conscious Life Festival sanctum "Kids Culture" – a fun and magical haven for kids to create, explore and learn: from quiet sacred sanctuaries to vibrant and energetic interactive workshops, all promoting conscious and nurturing development. The Conscious Life Festival offers a fun and friendly environment for people of all ages to explore alternative methods and all aspects of health, happiness, well-being and self-development. The festival is on this Saturday, August 2nd and Sunday August 3rd in the tranquil and always idyllic Peregian Beach just off Old Emu Mountain Road, Sunshine Coast, with easy access by car and just two minutes off the Sunshine Motorway.
Tickets are just $10, and children under the age of 16 ARE free!!
