Favourite Ways to Stay Cool this Summer

Strawberries are one of Australia’s favourite foods for cooling off this summer, and now there’s a study to prove it.

A survey by the SilverNeedle Hospitality group, as part of its Cool Summer campaign, asked Aussies to rate their favourite ways of staying cool this summer.

The most popular way to beat the heat was taking a dip in the swimming pool and the best cool day out was a trip to the beach, rather than visiting a water park or the zoo.

The Gold Coast took out the honours for best summer getaway, with almost 46% of the vote. It was closely followed by Noosa. Not surprisingly, Alice Springs was not in the running, with less than 3% of the vote.

Based on the survey, Australians voted for strawberries over a glass of fresh lemonade when it came to food and drinks to keep you refreshed in the summer heat.
