My Happy Place in Oz: Mooloolaba Beach on the Sunshine Coast

G'day from Oz lovely friends! Thanks so much for stopping by to visit. I hope that your week was as wonderful as mine! I've just returned from my 'happy place', Mooloolaba Beach on the Sunshine Coast in sunny Queensland!

I'm sure that you know by now that Mooloolaba is one of my most favourite places in the world! It's less than an hour's drive away from my hometown of Brisbane so it's so easy to get there for a quick weekend getaway or, in our case, a relaxing week-long vacation.

The Sunshine Coast is famous for its beautiful blue waters of the Pacific Ocean and some of the best weather conditions in the world! In summer the average temperature is 28 degrees C (82F) and in winter the temperature reaches about 18 degrees C (65F). Perhaps that's one of the reasons why the Sunshine Coast has experienced such significant population growth and urban development over the last 30 years.

I love Mooloolaba because it is literally a walk away from everything one could possibly need for a good holiday. There are great coffee shops, cafes and restaurants all along the main strip and there are lots of stylish shops and boutiques if you fancy doing a bit of retail therapy. I often get my hair done there and often get my nails done while I'm on holidays too. There is even a large supermarket at the end of the esplanade for all of your grocery needs. There are so many options for accommodation as well, from the iconic beachfront Peninsular Resort which is right on the Esplanade to the family-friendly Caribbean Apartments which is just one block away from the beach.

The beach itself is absolutely stunning. There are some areas which are suitable for surfers and the areas that are patrolled are usually just perfect for people who like to body surf or use their boogie boards.

There are also some really calm sections of the beach that make it perfect for families with young children. Mooloolaba Beach is actually sheltered by Point Cartwright. You can see the lighthouse and lookout in the picture below. This makes Mooloolaba the pick of the beaches for families, beach-goers and water-sports enthusiasts...for everyone!

If I haven't convinced you that Mooloolaba is the best beach and vacation spot in Queensland then maybe this will!




It sure is hard to be home after such a great week away but at least I know I'm only a quick drive away from the best beach in world if I need another dose of Beach Therapy!

Thanks for stopping by today. Hope you have a magical week.

Best wishes,

Natasha In Oz
