Once just a small port at the mouth of Mooloolah River, Mooloolaba is now a hotbed of tourism and a place more than worth adding to your Sunshine Coast itinerary.
You'll visit kid-friendly attractions like Point Cartwright and Gardners Falls. Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Buderim Forest Park and HMAS Brisbane. When in Mooloolaba, make a side trip to see Mount Ngungun in Glass House Mountains, approximately 34 minutes away. There's much more to do: stroll through Mooloolaba Beach, kick back and relax at Kings Beach, soothe aching muscles at some of the top local wellness centers, and get up close to creatures of the deep with a dolphin and whale watching tour.

Find out how to plan Mooloolaba trip without stress by asking Inspirock to help create an itinerary.

Drive from Rainbow Beach to Mooloolaba in 2 hours. In July in Mooloolaba, expect temperatures between 24°C during the day and 11°C at night. Finish your sightseeing early on the 3rd (Sat) so you can travel back home.
