Some of the Activities & Attractions around Mooloolaba:


GOLF

While staying in Mooloolaba you may like a game of golf or two. Better known courses around here include the new Maroochy Waters (formally Horton Park), Twin Waters, Noosa Springs, Headland or Mt Coolum. Not so well known but fun to play include Beerwah, Tewantin Noosa, Caloundra. Prices for golf have come down a bit in the last 12 months. There are many beaut courses in the area and we're happy to make recommendations and arrangements for you.

UNDERWATER WORLD - SEALIFE

It's just down the road and well worth a visit. If you're staying for a week or more we recommend the 14 Day VIP pass that entitles you to unlimited visits during that time.

AUSTRALIA ZOO

You're sure seen the television about Australia Zoo. It's the closest thing we have to a theme park on the Sunshine Coast and everyone who visits has a great time. Arrive before 10:00 am to ensure you don't miss the show in the Crocoseum.

CANAL CRUISES

These leave from The Wharf adjacent to Underwater World and are a lovely way to look at the canals, the river and some rather special houses.

MARKETS

The most famous of our markets is the one at Eumundi which operates on Wed & Sat. Enjoyment of these is enhanced if you're a well experienced shopper. In addition great fresh food can also be found at markets at the Kawana Primary School, The Big Top at Maroochydore, Fishermans Rd and The Big Pineapple...check at the office for days and times.

SHOPPING

As well as the markets the experienced shopper will enjoy the variety on The Esplanade and the sheer bulk of shops at Sunshine Plaza and Kawana Shopping World.

THE HINTERLAND

At least one day can be spent touring the little villages in the Hinterland. There are plenty of shops, markets, a few wineries and cheese factories well worth the visit. One delight not to be missed is ice cream at Colin James deli in the main street of Maleny.

SURFING LESSONS

There are lovely beach and point breaks in the area. If you're a keen surfer you'll know all about them. If the kids want lessons there are a couple of really good surf schools here that we can recommend to you.

FISHING

There are more fish caught by the commercial fleet that operates out of Mooloolaba that any other port on the eastern seaboard of Australia. This doesn’t guarantee that you'll catch fish here but there are a couple of options available to you. Beach fishing, river fishing or charter boat fishing. Each are good fun and often rewarding.
