With the necessities of living taken care of, the rest of the Sunshine Coast becomes your playground. Park your car and live like a local — it’s easy to walk to most places. You’ll enjoy strolling around the coastline with either esplanades or boardwalks to pave the way, especially the new Mooloolaba Boardwalk. It’s part of a huge upgrade and development for the area with new lighting, improved places to access the beach and more seating and viewing platforms not to mention 10,000 native plants to re-vegetate the land. The pathway takes you all the way along to the Mooloolaba Spit which on a good day is a very pleasant walk. (We don’t get many bad days either).
You don’t have to go far to find other beach or ocean activities either. The Alex Headlands is a superb spot to visit if you’re a keen surfer. Surfer that are starting out will find the Mooloolaba Beach ideal. The waves are gentle though big enough to ride and the sandy bottom is quite forgiving. There’s also a surf school at Mooloolaba too where noobies can perfect their surf skills.
Having said that all you need in the way of shopping is under the Bigtop Shopping Centre, we recommend that you get your prawns for the BBQ from Mooloolaba. Fresh off the boat to you at the fish markets on Mooloolaba Spit. There’s nothing quite like catch of the day. And you should definitely catch this Maroochydore accommodation near Bigtop Shopping Centre. Book now.
