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 Noosa Main Beach and Sea Life Sunshine Coast. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Mooloolaba: Mount Ninderry (in Yandina) and Noosa National Park (in Noosa). And it doesn't end there: kick back and relax at Mooloolaba Beach, make a splash at Thrill Hill Waterslide, discover the deep blue sea with a scuba or snorkeling tour, and let little ones run wild at Buderim Lions Park.

To find out how to plan a trip to Mooloolaba, use our trip itinerary maker.
