Sunshine Coast Town – Mooloolaba

Mooloolaba is a township in the centre of two prominent waterways, the Mooloolah River and Mooloolaba beach. The generally calm waterways and patrolled beaches make it a favourite destination for families and people looking for safe waters to enjoy their activities.

Point Cartwright, an all-weather port with an active lighthouse, shelters the main beach and provides pleasant water conditions for surfing, swimming, scuba diving, among other activities.

Mooloolaba Attractions, Activities & Things To Do on the Sunshine Coast QLD


A lot of the attractions are somewhat connected to its waterways. The amazing fishing spots draw beginner and advanced anglers into the town, who are delighted in the water conditions, variety of fish, and helpful facilities. The local port has a big parking lot, pontoons, boat ramps, and areas for cleaning fish, which further establishes Mooloolaba’s waterways as a favourite destination of local and out-of-town fishermen.

A list of Mooloolaba attractions would not be complete without “The Spit” and “The Esplanade.” If you are looking for fresh local seafood prepared in the most appetising way, then visit any of the dining and eating establishments in “The Spit.” Fish and chips is a crowd favourite and a must-try dish for those who are visiting from out-of-town. Alfresco dining near the beach is what the Esplanade offers.

Mooloolaba is a laid back township that is good for a family-friendly weekend getaway. It has the amenities of a resort town, only without the messy traffic and the crowds of people.
