Mooloolaba Holidays with Kids

Your kids will love a holiday in Mooloolaba. The Sunshine Coast presents a plethora of holiday options as it is home to some of the best beaches in the country. Mooloolaba is one of its most popular locations. It is right in the middle of the Sunshine Coast and the best local accommodation choices line the beachfront. Apartment style resorts are the most popular choice for families on holiday with their kids. This is because they provide the option of separate bedrooms and self catering for cooking and washing. This option helps to keep the family budget in check. It is also great if mum and dad want to entertain at night as the children can watch TV is a separate room or be put to bed depending on their age. Mooloolaba has plenty of this type of accommodation and much of it is right on the beachfront. This proximity is also very convenient as everything can be within walking distance of your family accommodation.

The Mooloolaba beachfront is also heavy on dining options. Everything from fast food outlets to fantastic bistros and restaurant is available. Holiday activities and attractions are also available in large numbers. Daily whale watching trips operate from Mooloolaba, on the Sunshine Coast during the annual whale watching season. This runs from June to November. They are run by the Australia Zoo people who provide an informative day out. Underwater World is one of Australia’s best aquariums and it is walking distance from the local holiday accommodation. Steve Irwin’s famous Australia Zoo can be accessed by shuttle bus and both of these attractions are hard to beat for entertaining the kids.

All Aussie kids love a drive in the country and a barbecue. Take a drive into the Blackall ranges and visit Maleny and Mapleton. Try Lady Cairncross Park for a picnic and admire the fantastic views of the Glasshouse Mountains or go for a walk in the rainforest where you will see rare red cedar trees which were almost logged to extinction.

Mooloolaba is one of the best destinations on the Sunshine Coast for a holiday with the kids.
