WHILE Hawthorn calls Tasmania its second home thanks to a multi-million sponsorship deal with that state's government, the Melbourne-based AFL club is feeling pretty comfortable on the Sunshine Coast.

The Hawks hit Mooloolaba Beach on the second day of their week-long training camp on the Coast yesterday, and proved a drawcard for passers-by.

Working up a sweat, the 2013 premiership favourites, featuring superstars such as Lance Franklin and Cyril Rioli, completed a two-hour fitness circuit.

The players will be back at the Maroochydore Multi-Sports Complex this morning for a skills session.

"That's what we're here for, to do some hard work," Hawk forward Michael

Osborne said.

"It did work well last year. We got some good results and got some good fitness into the boys."
