The Mooloolah River National Park is only a few minutes drive from the Sunshine Coast, which makes it a convenient location to visit on your next stay on the coast. This park is divided into two zones: the Mooloolah River Section and the Jowarra Section. Both areas are known for protecting the coastal rainforests in this area which face the danger of extinction.

There is a lot to see and do in this wonderful park, including bushwalking, canoeing up the Mooloolah River or cycling along the edge of the park. There are short walking tracks in the Jowarra section and some fire management trails that can be used as tracks in the Mooloolah section.

Another beautiful garden in Sippy Downs is the Maroochy Bushland Botanic Gardens. This breathtaking garden boasts a year-round green setting with a picture-perfect backdrop of the lake and lush flowering plants. Picnicking is also a popular activity here as well as canoeing on the still water lake.
