UPDATE: One cheeky Daily reader says they spotted the MP for Fairfax on the Sunshine Coast this morning, but not where you might expect. 

Jake Watson claimed he saw Mr Palmer getting shacked in the green room, closer examination reveals it is clearly not Clive. 

That said if you see him surfing let us know. 

Meanwhile Mr Palmer has since Tweeted about drinking hot chocolate in Buderim and admiring the golf course at Palmer Coolum Resort. 

 

EARLIER: IF YOU can believe what you read on Twitter, Clive Palmer might actually on the Sunshine Coast.

The Fairfax MP has copped flack from constituents and observers from further afield for rarely being seen around the electorate and for making his home on the Gold Coast.

With a Federal election looming Mr Palmer appears to be making his presence felt, Tweeting, he says, from within the bounds of Fairfax.

This morning he Tweeted about the "beautiful start to the day on the #SunshineCoast".

It was the third Tweet in 24 hours seeming to show Mr Palmer was in the area.

At the weekend he Tweeted from Peregian Beach.

Any sightings of Mr Palmer are yet to be reported.

If you've spotted Clive Palmer on the Sunshine Coast let us know in the comments below.
