Mooloolaba Holiday Activities – Rain or Shine

Here are a great range of holiday activities to enjoy when the sun is shining on beautiful Mooloolaba.

The Beaches –  from Noosa to Caloundra the beaches are stunning, in fact they are world class and they do Australia proud. There are fun packed main beaches, quiet tucked away beaches, rocky exploring beaches, rough and surfy beaches, calm and shady beaches… with mile after mile of golden sandy beaches. However you want to relax- be it quietly or adventurously you will find the perfect beach for you. Mooloolaba beach right on our door step is a gorgeous wide bay, with two patrolled sections to choose from surrounded by boardwalks, cafes and parks all for you to enjoy.

Rock pooling - My children can spend hours pottering on the rocks just along the front from Seaview Resort. It’s lovely to find a perch, dip your feet in the cool water and watch children do what they do best- explore nature and their imaginations flow. Fish and chips at the Spit- a leisurely 20 minute amble (or a quick drive) along Mooloolaba’s beach front takes you round to the Spit. This is the perfect place for fish and chips with lots of restaurants to choose from. It is also the place to buy all your fresh sea food straight off the trawler. There are picnic tables and a park for the children to entertain themselves whilst you sit

If you do happen to experience rain on your Mooloolaba holiday, here are some alternative indoor activities that kids are sure to enjoy.

The Big Boing - Indoor trampoline heaven for the kiddies. Book online for your slot, turn up and bounce to your hearts content. You’ll need a car for this one as it’s about 20mins down the road from Mooloolaba.

Chipmunks -  Indoor play park for the children, next door to the Big Boing. Clean, well kept, with lots of climbing and ball pits to keep the little’uns amused.

Sunshine Plaza – If the Sun’s not shining then it’s time to shop! Sunshine Plaza is a short drive away or the bus stop is literally just out the front of our Resort.

Cinemas - Birch Carroll and Coyle located at Sunshine Plaza. We always have the weekly listings printed on the notice board by reception and with a write up on each film to help with your choice.

Cafes –  There are so many lovely places to sit and grab a coffee and cake and watch the world go by. Mooloolaba Esplanade is the perfect place for relaxed holiday people watching.

Rain or shine, there is always something for everyone to enjoy and we hope that you will enjoy a wonderful holiday in our beautiful part of the world.

Mooloolaba Holiday Activities

Head outdoors to enjoy the natural beauty of the Sunshine Coast. Here are a few local places that are a must visit on your Mooloolaba holiday.

Point Cartwright

A great place to visit, right on our door step, Point Cartwright is the spit of land on the other side of the river from Mooloolaba harbour. You have to drive there but it’s well worth a visit as there are nice walks, a nature reserve, a little park, outdoor exercise equipment and quite spots along the river for a peaceful swim. It’s a lovely pace to stroll and take in the beautiful views and you can walk round the coast line onto the stretch of golden sands that leads all the way down to Caloundra. There is good surf around the point and it’s a good spot to sit and watch the action.

Eumundi Markets

One word- AMAZING! So much colour, so much to see. Chocked full of handmade goodies, arts, crafts, clothes and delicious food stalls. There is entertainment ranging from musicians to magicians to pony rides. Eumundi Village is a very special place and it hosts some very special and unique markets every Wednesday and Saturday mornings. It is also just up the road from Noosa so it is quite easy to combine the two into a day out. Eumundi Markets are about a 40min drive from Mooloolaba but if you don’t have a car don’t worry! We can The Hinterland- the Hinterland surrounding Mooloolaba is absolutely stunning. With gorgeous little places to visit perched high on the ridge overlooking the Coast. Mapleton, Montville and Maleny are very picturesque and offer a different slice of life, so green with beautiful undulating hills. They are worth a visit just to potter round the shops and to take in the atmosphere but there is also a cheese factory at Montville and a very popular Dairy at Maleny both offering tours and tastings. There is a tourist information on the road to Maleny for ideas and inspiration.

Kondililla Falls

Just outside Montville the Falls are within a National Park where you can stroll through the forest or do a serious hike up and down the hills and valleys. The Falls themselves are a 90 metre drop and spectacular to see.

It’s an unusual sight to drive to Bli Bli from Maroochydore and come across a Norman style Castle in front of you but yes, we have a Castle! Complete with moat, towers and turrets, drawbridge and dungeon! Why not put your child in the stocks whilst you enjoy a German sausage platter and a nice cold beer. The view from the top is well worth the visit.

Mooloolaba Restaurant Review

Mooloolaba restaurant

Journey to Bollywood

Brisbane Road, Mooloolaba

Journey to Bollywood is the perfect Indian Restaurant (not that we are bias!). The interior is traditionally Indian, lots of gold and bright fabrics, which makes for a great atmosphere and the food is the best Indian food we’ve come across locally. We have been here many times and always enjoyed new and different curries whilst chatting over shared plates. There is an extensive menu and lots of vegetarian choices. They are very flexible if you have any allergies and all food is offered mild, medium, hot or Indian hot- depending on how brave you are! They can even do hot on the side if you want to spice your own. I have recommended this restaurant to our guests before and people have always come back happy and with full bellies.

Mooloolaba Resort Accommodation Guest Review

“Great Location”

We stayed in a two bed apartment on the 10th floor. Everything was spotless and the furnishings were modern and comfortable. The view was amazing, and only a short walk to all the shops and the beach only across the road.Yes there is traffic noise which we expected as it is on a main road, but it didn’t bother us and at night it was pretty quiet. The pool was lovely and warm, it caught the sun in the morning,so was great for a morning swim. The reception staff were very pleasant and helpful and even though we got there a bit early, our apartment was ready for us,which we didn’t expect. We’ll definitely be back for our next holiday!

Why not see for yourself? Ring us today at The Seaview and book your Mooloolaba resort accommodation and get ready for a beach side holiday to remember.

You don’t have to go far to enjoy the immersive experience at SeaLife Mooloolaba . Another world has been bought to the surface for some convenient viewing. There’s a vast collection of live sharks, fish and stingray, and encounters and shows as well.

Touch the baby stingrays that flap around their miniature reef habitat. You can get to watch the otters: natural performers and expert swimmers, while the Seals Behaving Badly Show is highly entertaining. An encounter swimming and playing with the seals is also memorable. View the world’s only captive giant squid and wander past a billabong where a freshwater crocodile floats, with its eyes breaking the surface. How about a “A Fish Called Honda” — a repurposed car with a funky tropical fishtank built inside.
