From bustling esplanades to uncrowded havens; this slice of the Sunshine Coast has it all. If you fancy some fresh seafood, take a trip to Mooloolaba Spit or hop on one of the many fishing charters to catch your own.
From June to November, you can venture out and swim with whales or stay aboard on a whale-watching cruise. Sunreef, a local dive operator have commenced trips to Mudjimba Island, or as the locals know it, Old Woman Island, a haven for wildlife. “It’s such a great and an iconic spot on the Sunshine Coast. And it’s only 10 minutes from Mooloolaba itself by a boat, so it’s quick to get to an easy to get to. It’s teeming with marine life, from turtles to wobbegongs, various fish species, heaps and heaps of nudibranchs, which are tiny, colourful slugs and lots of squids as well.”
While at the Wharf enjoy local produce at the eateries and bars, shop or stroll around the boardwalk taking in the Marina and river views. If you prefer an ocean adventure on dry land, take the kids to Sea Life Sunshine Coast, where you can discover thousands of marine and freshwater animals.
