About

Mooloolaba Marina is situated riverside on a narrow spit of parkland five minutes walk from downtown Mooloolaba on the Sunshine Coast. Wedged in between Mooloolah River to the south and the sweeping strip of Mooloolaba’s famous beach to the north, Mooloolaba Marina has a pretty handy location.

At the heart of Queensland’s Sunshine Coast, Mooloolaba is a coastal town with a labyrinth of man-made canals that snake through leafy suburbs an hours’ drive north of Brisbane.

The area has a vibrant holiday feel, no doubt in part because of all that sunshine and vast parklands that connect sea with civilisation. With mild winters and warm summers, it’s a popular getaway destination year round.

Marina Access

The Marina is located in a safe, protected harbour, open all weather and all tides. Entry is via the mouth of the Mooloolah River at Point Cartwright (lighthouse).
For details on the latest conditions at the river entrance, please check current Notices to Mariners on the Marine Safety Queensland web site.

Social Events

The Marina is renowned for its friendly and welcoming environment with many regular social events. Every Friday night a BBQ is held at the Sunshine Coast Yacht Club which is situated on the waterfront amidst lawns and palm trees. Sailors can either BYO meat or purchase meat packs from the bar, along with reasonably priced drinks. The Yacht Club welcomes you to join them and be part of a friendly social environment.

Like to dine out? Mooloolaba is a gourmands heaven with fresh seafood, direct from the trawler right at the end of the Spit. A short walk to Mooloolaba is a range of dining options from Chinese, Mexican, Thai, Italian: every taste on the globe is available. After dinner, enjoy the nightlife at one of the surf clubs or excellent bars dotted along the beaches right up the Sunshine Coast.

Pet Friendly

The Mooloolaba Marina is pet friendly! Your moggy or pooch is welcome, but please keep the canine on a leash and your favourite feline on board. Always remember to clean up after your pet and consider the neighbours at all times.
