Maroochydore

Maroochydore - Sunshine Coast - Queensland

Maroochydore on Queenslands Sunshine Coast is situated just 100 kilometres north of Brisbane where your holiday experience has the potential to be as diverse as you choose. This sun drenched coastal town will keep you entertained with activities for water lovers and land lovers alike with an array of activities for young and old. Occasionally you may spot a black swan on the Maroochy River or in one of the many waterways, giving credence to the Aboriginal meaning of the name Maroochydore, meaning "home of the black swan".

Just a short distance away from the year round patrolled beach visitors can relax on their balcony of a beachfront resort apartment or enjoy the spoils alongside the Maroochy River at the holiday parks and resorts. The dining options are endless with an incredible choice of clubs, pubs, cosmopolitan cafes and restaurants to tantalise your taste buds. Local markets are held every Sunday and shopping enthusiasts will be more than satisfied as they wander around the largest shopping centre on the coast at the Sunshine Plaza.

If it's action that makes an ideal holiday for you, the choices are endless with surfing, canoeing, jet skiing, kayaking, kite surfing and much more or maybe a nice stroll from the beach to the cafes, restaurants and clubs nearby is more your thing. Take in the glorious views south of the beach to Point Cartwright and north to Mudjimba Island or venture to the mouth of the river to take in the sight of the mysterious Pincushion Island, where this tall, sand and rock formation appears to change its position in the river. If you require more action than this, the beauty of Maroochydore is that it is so close to many other attractions including Top Shots Fun Park, Suncoast Cable Watersports, The Sunshine Castle and Aussie World to name a few.
