Travel Tips for Maroochydore

MAROOCHYDORE & MOOLOOLABA

by balhannah

"ONE OF MY FAVORITES!"

Maroochydore I love!

To me, it is situated centrally on the Sunshine Coast, which makes it a

good place to stay, and then go exploring the Sunshine coast.

The name Maroochydore comes from the Aboriginal word "Murukutchi-da"

meaning "the home of the black swan".

You will sometimes see a pair of black swans on the river or in one of

Maroochydore's waterways, though pelicans are much more common.

Stretching to Noosa National Park, the long Maroochydore Beach is

excellent for swimmers, and surfers.

There are great views to Point Cartwright and to Mudjimba Island (once owned by Sean Connery).

Along the river you'll find lovely picnic areas and still-water swimming destinations.

If you journey to the mouth of the river, you will see Pincushion Island,

a tall sand and rock formation famed for its fishing.

You can hit the beach, cruise the river, clean out the shops and dine in the

restaurants all in the one day!

"MOO!! MOO!!! MOOLOOLABA!"

Mooloolaba sits on a spit of land between a marina on the Mooloolah River

and beautiful ocean beaches and Point Cartwright.

It is only a short distance from Maroochydore.

There are plenty of restaurants, shopping, white beaches with patrolled

areas for swimming and surfing, and walks along the broadwalk.

It is located approximately 100 km (1 hour) from Brisbane

The name Mooloolaba is thought to have derived from either the Aboriginal

word 'mulu' for snapper fish or from 'mullu' meaning red-bellied black snake.

The Mooloolah River mouth and harbour was chartered in 1861.

Mooloolah Heads was the gateway to the Maroochy District between 1870 to 1884.

Due to the protection Point Cartwright offered, the port was preferred over the Maroochy River.

Steamers carried produce, passengers and timber between Mooloolaba and Brisbane.

Throughout the 1920s the population increased, and there were many

Holiday cottages and houses dotted along the river and the narrow

spit.

Boat hire and fishing were also very popular. As the roads and public

amenities improved, Mooloolaba continued to develop as both a premier

residential and holiday location.With a sub-tropical climate and ocean breezes, it is never stifling hot

and rarely freezingly cold.

Tropical lighting storms are common in the summer months.

The temperature range from 17°C to 28°C in Summer, and 7°C to 23°C in Winter.

All major coach lines service the Sunshine Coast, with transit centres

at Caloundra, Maroochydore, Nambour and Noosa. Regular daily services

operate between the Sunshine Coast and Brisbane.

Visit Underwater World while here, it is great!
