When you think of a journey in Australia, your mind begins to fill with visions of surf trips along the coast. Driving over dunes in search of the perfect wave whilst the sun beats down overhead, scorching the sand. You certainly don’t think of a journey on snow and even less so of one into the untouched and relatively unexplored Main Range of the Australian high country. But, that’s just what we did, we took the road less traveled. We tread new ground, searched until the point of absolute exhaustion and nearly came away second best to mother nature. However, in the process, we scored an ultimate adventure experienced by few and came away with an epic story to tell.Read More
Winter has finally come, which means there’s no better opportunity for Corona to partner up with Thredbo to bring snow and music enthusiasts a gig, live and loud on the slopes, featuring a headline performance from Sydney soul-rockers, The Preatures.
As part of Corona Sunsets, The Thredbo Alpine Hotel Poolside will host The Preatures and a string of other live acts including Polish Club under the alpine sky on Saturday the 26th of August. No need to break open the piggy bank either, as this gig is completely free of charge.
Coming in hot before their massive national tour in support of their sophomore album Girlhood, The Preatures will take centre stage, providing crowds with a thrilling combination of rock and soul. The Preatures rose to fame with their single ‘Is This How You Feel?’ and have been dominating the airways ever since. This is the perfect chance to catch the four-piece perform songs from Girlhood – the highly praised follow-up to their 2014 hit album Blue Planet Eyes.
It’s not the first time Corona has collaborated with The Preatures; they played a run of exclusive live and stripped back acoustic shows for us in 2015 to rave reviews, and we’re stoked to be presenting them again this winter at Thredbo!
The self-proclaimed sweatiest band in Sydney, Polish Club, will get the stage simmering for The Preatures from 4:30pm, with DJ Radge keeping the crowd vibing between [...]

We’re right in the midst of Australia’s winter and while it has its benefits in terms of swell, it’s also the perfect time to escape the blistering cold, venture somewhere tropical and thaw out on a deserted white sand beach. Sounds enticing, doesn’t it? The islands of Fiji boast some of the most stunning shorelines imaginable and beautiful ocean life to rival that of any other reef in the world, not to mention world class waves–including the legendary Cloudbreak.Read More
We’re back, this time we’ve traded the sands and cliffs of the Australian leg for fibreglass and a romantically decrepit tower. We’re here at tour stop number five and we’ve brought along our lenses once again to capture the fantastic peripherals of competitive surfing in the latest Stab x Corona Beach Chair episode.Read More
It was a typical Sunday morning. I’d woken up at my mate’s place after a couple of beers the night before. We checked the surf forecast for the local beach, and with the report not showing too much potential, we opted to stay put for the moment. We were in no rush to go anywhere. It was then I got a phone call from a friend I hadn’t heard from in a while, and the outcome of the conversation was better than I’d hoped—an invite and a paid return flight to South Oz for a surf trip.Read More
