Australia’s Sunshine Coast. Home to breathtaking beaches, gorgeous weather and great food. The region has also seen record numbers in tourism growth of late. With new infrastructure, global events and Sunshine Coast Airport increasing capacity, it’s easy to see why domestic and international visitors continue to flock to the area’s golden sands. Here’s a couple of things to do in Mooloolaba on your next short break!
It seems like there’s a great beach around every corner in Australia and Mooloolaba is no different. Heralded as one of the country’s best and most child friendly beaches, the region’s warm weather makes taking a dip here a year round event! Grab a good book, a beach towel and head down for an afternoon of relaxation…
SEA LIFE Mooloolaba
Whether its swimming with sharks, playing with seals or admiring the ‘Bay of Rays’, SEA LIFE Mooloolaba is the place to go to get up close and personal with a variety of sea creatures. The brand new ‘Jurassic Seas’ interactive exhibit take you back in time to the ancient beasts that once roamed the waters before they became extinct. Especially relevant for the kids (or the big kids amongst you)!
Dolphin Watching & Snorkelling
Because who wouldn’t be keen on seeing dolphins that frequent the shores of Mooloolaba? Well head on down to The Wharf near Parkyn Parade for the best vantage point. There are also whale watching tours that take you up and down the coast, getting you even closer to the action! Feel like a dip? The Wharf is a great place to grab some snorkelling gear and discover coral and fish in the clear waters.
Due to the area’s relaxed holiday vibe you’ll need accommodation that matches the same mentality. Mooloolaba’s latest accommodation offering, Breeze Mooloolaba, an Ascend Hotel Collection Member, is perfectly positioned just moments from the beach. The hotel is also on the doorstep of a stretch of restaurants, shops, cafes and bars!
