Mooloolaba Beach is a fantastic holiday destination for everyone with plenty of parks, shops and cafes on offer. For the foodies you have the Parkyn Parade seafood precinct, or try catching lunch yourself on a fishing charter on the serene waters of the Mooloolah River and out to the bay.
You can also experience the beautiful reefs and colourful fish species on a scuba diving expedition, which may take you to explore the sunken wreck of the ex HMAS Brisbane. Or visit the wharf and aquarium at SEA LIFE Sunshine Coast and swim with a seal. In winter you can treat yourself to a life-changing whale watching and whale swim tour from the marina and discover just how intelligent those huge creatures really are, or head down to the spit and watch the fishing boats come in with the fresh catch of the day.
