International Rally of Queensland returns to Oaks Oasis

17 Jun 2014

Favourite Sunshine Coast resort Oaks Oasis, Caloundra has this week signed a mutually beneficial sponsorship agreement with one of the region’s largest annual sporting events, the International Rally of Queensland, that will see the event return to the popular property for the next three years.

A crowd of competitors from overseas, including the likes of Europe, India and Asia, and all around Australia will call Oaks Oasis their ‘home away from home’ during the three-day event, running from Friday 20 June – Sunday 22 June 2014.

The resort has also been named as the official organizational and media headquarters of the Rally, lending to its impressive conferencing and events venues and facilities.

General Manager of Sales for Oaks Hotels & Resorts Daniel Csortan said, “We are thrilled to welcome back the International Rally of Queensland for the next three years. The event has found its way into the hearts of Queenslanders and rally-enthusiasts from all over and it really brings a buzz to Caloundra and Oaks Oasis alike. It is also greatly beneficial to other tourism operators in the region who can capitalize on the thousands of visitors and spectators who flock to the Sunshine Coast for the weekend event.”

The festivities kick off from Friday 20 June 2014, with the free Ceremonial Street Party giving locals the chance to meet the drivers, see the cars and enjoy a smorgasbord of food, drinks and entertainment before the racing kicks off on Saturday at Imbil Forest, running through until Sunday afternoon.

After experiencing the exhilarating rally action by day or night, Oaks Oasis is inviting competitors, VIPs and guests to retreat to the tropical surroundings of the resort and its comfortable coastal-inspired accommodation. And for those still fired up and not yet ready to retire, they can splash around in the fully heated water play park, dive into the lagoon-style pool and spa, enjoy a game of tennis on the floodlit court, or indulge in a tasty meal and well-earned drink at the popular restaurant and bar. 

Oaks Oasis’ very own Reflections Restaurant and Bar will also host a dedicated Rally after park, open to the public on Sunday evening. 

Event Director Paul Woodward said, “Oaks Oasis is perfectly suited to the needs of a large event such as ours, with a range of different accommodation rooms for groups and individuals all with wireless internet access, plus complimentary on-site parking, a restaurant and bar, myriad leisure facilities and state of the art conference venues.

Oaks Oasis comprises 180 guest rooms, ranging from hotel rooms to self contained studios, one, two and three bedroom apartments and villas, set amongst 10 acres of manicured gardens. Other leisure facilities include a central, tropical pool with heated spa, children’s playground, onsite restaurant and bar, beach volleyball court, miniature putting green and floodlit tennis court. The property is just metres Golden Beach and other nearby attractions.
