CREWS contesting the International Rally of Queensland this week were symbolically welcomed to the Sunshine Coast in a photo shoot at Caloundra's Kings Beach this morning.

Members of the Metropolitan Caloundra Surf Life Saving Club, who devote their time to protecting swimmers at one of the coast's most picturesque beaches, came through the breakers in Inflatable Rescue Boats carrying flags of the seven nations represented at IROQ - India, China, Malaysia, Japan, Czech Republic, New Zealand and Australia.

They landed on the shore and walked up the beach to present the flags to (above, from left) Malcolm Read, Michael Young, Brendan Reeves, Tom Wilde, Pavel Dresler and Jan Kopecky.

First-time visitors Kopecky and Dresler said they were impressed by the natural beauty of the Sunshine Coast.
