Mooloolaba

— 4 nights
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 Spas as well as Australia Zoo. Relax by the water at Mooloolaba Beach and Marcoola Beach. Satisfy your inner culture vulture at Sunshine Coast Craft Beer Tours and Pioneer Cottage Buderim. There's much more to do: get up close to creatures of the deep with a dolphin and whale watching tour, observe the fascinating underwater world at SEA LIFE Sunshine Coast, buy something for everyone on your list at Maroochydore, Sunshine Plaza, and identify plant and animal life at Buderim Forest Park.

Beaches, sun-drenched streets, and a relaxed ambience are the defining elements of Sunshine Coast, a region just north of Brisbane. Having grown rapidly in the 1960s and 1970s, Sunshine Coast became a popular destination for surfers in particular and has now grown into a well-managed city focused on "green" economic development.
