The resort town of Mooloolaba has a reputation as a popular central Sunshine Coast tourist destination. The township boasts a mixture of ocean beaches and riverfront, and a wide variety of quality restaurants and eateries.
Surfers can enjoy the Mooloolaba beaches or the nearby beaches of Alexandra Headland, Coolum and Maroochydore. The scenic gems of the Sunshine Coast hinterland are just a short drive inland.
Mooloolaba is a favourite anchorage for ocean cruisers and game fishermen with its all-weather port and international standard marinas. It is home to a large trawling fleet and is also the finishing point for blue-water sailing races from both Sydney and Auckland.
