  • Check out the sunrise

    The sun rising over the sea is always spectacular but when you add a few cluds on the horizon, Norfolk Pines and fishing boats and have the advantage of a bit of height you are in for a treat. It is well worth getting woken by the lorikeets.

So much time to look on every travel page.I am hoping these links will be of assistance when you are looking for somewhere special..So let us look at...

  • Hogs Breath Cafe

    Well I went to Hogs Breath with the idea in the back of my mind that as I had a guest from Brisbane with me I would have to make a quick exit and go to close by up-market See Restaurant if the food at Hogs Breath was only 'so so'....why was I there then? Well it was a Virtual tourist Meet so.......Not being a 'steak person' (and those that ordered...

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    I borrowed a bicycle from the hostel i stayed at in mooloolaba one day and went for a little bicycle tour of Mooloolaba and cycling there was pretty ok.
    Mooloolaba is a town that takes sports serious and they have some streets with bikelanes and you have a good bike/walking path along the beach aswell.
    Just be ware that Australia is not the biggest cycling nation on earth, so the car drivers might not always be aware of cyclists by the side of the road, but in general cycling in Mooloolaba was pretty ok.
