Things to do
Mooloolaba Beach is one of the most picturesque on the Sunshine Coast with its clean, white sands and azure waters. The beach is patrolled every day of the year by lifeguards and is perfect for those a little more timid in the sea as the waves aren’t too big. The beach is the perfect hang out as long as you slip, slop and slap. If you’re interested in doing more than lazing about on the sand then learning to surf is a great way to spend your holidays.
Point Cartwright Light is an active lighthouse located on Point Cartwright, a point near the mouth of the Mooloolaba River, in Mooloolaba. It marks the entrance to the North West Channel, a deep water channel into Moreton Bay and the Port of Brisbane, and provides guidance into the Mooloolaba Harbour.
