As far as dynamic (geographical) duos go, neighbouring towns Mooloolaba and Maroochydore are the dazzling gems of the Sunshine Coast, Queensland.
Striking the perfect balance between work and play, laid-back Maroochydore with its prime location and waterfront access, takes life in its stride. And although Maroochydore is the bustling business hub of the Sunshine Coast, the sparkling shoreline and green open spaces will give you a taste of the great outdoors.
A place where surfie vibes and suits collide, Maroochydore – the CBD of Queensland’s Sunshine Coast – is flanked by the crashing swells of the deep blue and the calm waters of the Maroochy River. And although easy-going days are always high on the agenda, Maroochydore hits the mark when it comes to urban living by the sea.
Another draw card is its close proximity to the equally buzzing Mooloolaba — an 11-minute drive, to be exact. One of the Sunshine Coast’s most talked about beachside towns, Mooloolaba is an outdoor lover’s paradise that hits the mark when it comes to easy-going days filled with water-based adventures.
Mooloolaba’s beautiful coastline, vibrant town and unbeatable facilities – including Sea Life’s magical underwater world – are all within easy walking distance of the beachfront resorts and holiday rentals. And although there is a distinct holiday feel to Mooloolaba, you need only meander around the canals of Mooloolah River to see how the locals live. Stunning waterfront properties complete with lush tropical gardens and private wharves with moored boats – boasting a life that is filled with pleasure and ease.
