Just a 200 metre walk to the north of Breeze is the peaceful green parkland of the HMAS Brisbane lookout overlooking the Mooloolaba coastline and a locals favourite sunbathing, snorkeling and fishing bay.
It’s hard to talk about the Esplanade without mentioning Mooloolaba Beach. It is one of the safest swimming beaches on the Sunshine Coast with it’s a north-facing aspect protected from the prevailing southerlies and sou-easterlies with near perfect conditions all year round. It’s good for surfing newbies too.
The eastern end of Moolooaba is also a great place to explore. Enjoy the walk along the pristine beach to the spit. There are plenty of diversions along the walkway through the trees for the kids, and lots of seated areas to enjoy the views.
Further and beyond is Point Cartwright which requires a car if you’re preferring an excursion that doesn’t involve a really long walk. Point Cartwright is not patrolled beach and situated at the very northern end of Kawana beach.
It’s well known for its surfing point break. The high cliffs of the coastal headland reserve provides a great vantage point over Mooloolaba, the Mooloolah River mouth, Mount Coolum to the north and Kawana Beach to the south.
Migrating humpback whales and turtles as well as ships entering and leaving the Port of Brisbane can also be viewed from Point Cartwright. It also a good place for picnics.
Mooloolaba is host to some of the most beautiful wedding spots on the Sunshine Coast.
