A sunbathed chair, hot dog sunbathers and the sunbathe in a park on the South Island are just some of the activities that can be enjoyed by a person who’s never been to one before.
It’s one of the ways the sun has been warming the world and there’s plenty of opportunity to get out and enjoy the scenery.
The South Island is the most remote part of New Zealand and has its own unique culture.
The Sunshine Coast has its history dating back to when the Pilbara first settled here.
The name is derived from the sunbeams it reflects.
“It’s a very unique and distinctive place.
There are so many different kinds of things to see, explore, see how the birds work and it’s a bit like the world is being told by birds,” said Dr Jennifer Leighton from the University of Auckland.
She said people from the Sunshine Coast had a special place in their hearts and would love to spend time with them.
“We’ve got the traditional bush walking and it looks amazing.
There’s this incredible beauty, like there’s a lot of nature that’s here.
There was a beautiful landscape there when it was first settled and it continues to be beautiful.”
Dr Leighton said the Sunshine coast was a place of beauty and the people of the region would love for their ancestors to come to the area and explore.
“They’ll be surprised and thrilled to discover this amazing place and what it means to the Pilbarans,” she said.
There’s a huge amount of history and heritage in the area, Dr Leighton added.
She has seen many different sunbathes and has had many interesting experiences.
“I’ve had a great time, I’m just a little bit surprised and a bit amazed at how much time I’ve had here.
It’s a place I would love my ancestors to visit,” she explained.
Sunbathing in a bushThe Sunshine coast is home to a large number of different species of birds, including the Australian kookaburra, the black-necked blackbird and the southern goshawk.
“This area has a lot to offer in terms of bird life and what we have here is a really unique environment.
It has a huge biodiversity and a really great diversity of birds,” Dr Leightnes said.”
There are quite a lot and they’re not just a few in the region but a lot more than there are birds around.”
She said there were birds in the Sunshine region that would be hard to see anywhere else.
“You could actually see them all the time in a small way and they would be very subtle,” she laughed.
Dr Leightne was amazed by how many birds were present in the beach area.
“The southern gushow and they are pretty much all there,” she described.
“When I went out there for a walk one morning, I didn’t see them at all.”
Dr Lylenes said the sunbaths on the Sunshine were very different from the ones on the coast, but that was not a bad thing.
“If you want to be a bird watcher or a sunbather, it’s going to be much more interesting because it’s so different,” she agreed.
“People are really attracted to the unique environment and the unique people.”
Dr Lee said the best sunbatchers would want to spend some time in the wild and have a good time with other birds and wildlife.
“Sunbathes are great because they’re so peaceful, they’re very natural and you don’t have to be up all night worrying about anything, so that’s really the key to a really good experience,” she added.
