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.
Your day-by-day itinerary now includes Glass House Mountains National Park, Australia Zoo and Point Cartwright. Head to Art on Cairncross and Seaview Art Galleryfor plenty of shopping. Get a sense of the local culture at Queensland Air Museum and Caloundra Regional Art Gallery. Change things up with a short trip to Mary Cairncross Scenic Reserve in Maleny (about 34 minutes away). There's much more to do: wander the streets of Downtown Caloundra, let the kids burn off some steam at Buderim Lions Park, take a tour by water with Coastal Cruises Mooloolaba, and explore the galleries of Caloundra RSL Military Display.
