OPINION: Is there anything quite as fantastic as the sights and sounds of an Australian summer?
Leather on willow, the splash in the pool and the fizz of a coke.
Every year as the weather heats up everybody seems to crawl from their homes and realise there is life away from an electronic device.
Fishing lines are thrown, four-wheel-drives start churning and the smell of sunscreen fills the air.
And I, along with most people I think, have a memory of that one awesome summer.
Whether it be the first time you visited at a new beachside place, that girl you met or the summer of cricket.
There is just something about summer that gets people up and active.
I've made a pledge to myself after a recent visit to a camping and boating store to make the most of it.
This summer I'm going to enjoy that beer, swim at that beach and explore somewhere I haven't been before. I've got four weeks off from December 12 so I need your help to find the best spots on the Queensland coastline.
I have a four-wheel drive, a boat and a kayak so nowhere is off-limits.
