Who is up for surf vibes? Mooloolaba on the sunshine coast definitively delivers. We rented a self-contained apartment for a couple of days. We took daily walks around the block and of course to the beach. It was great to hear and see the waves. I have been living in the Whitsundays for a while and surf waves are not part of the daily scenery, so this was a welcome change of oceanscape for a little while.
The wharf has also been a source of entertainment and great food. Make sure you check it out. If you have a family, the Mooloolaba aquarium is a cool place too.
I also could not resist taking a surf lesson. I had not surfed for at least six years and even then was not terribly good at it but thoroughly enjoyed getting back on the surfboard. Thanks to the Maroochy surf school! Still a pretty abysmal surf performance on my part but got out of the water with a smile!
I had also planned to scuba dive the Ex H-MAS Brisbane with Sunreef but unfortunately due to the wind and overall stormy weather, the trip was cancelled. I will have to come back! If anybody has done it, please let me know in the comments what I have missed!
What a joy to walk on the beach at sunrise. If you have not seen my Youtube video, take a look…. here
Overall, this was a relaxing stay with a really nice change in oceanscape and lovely walks.
Stay tuned for my day trip to the hinterland of the beautiful sunny coast.
Until next time travel safe and enjoy this beautiful country!
