MOOLOOLABA RESTAURANTS AND NIGHTLIFE

Experience world-class Mooloolaba dining

Mooloolaba is second to none for restaurant dining on the Sunshine Coast. From beachfront dining, marina waterfront dining and quaint brunch cafes bursting with character, Mooloolaba is a foodie’s playground with something for any mood, craving and occasion.

Mooloolaba Wharf, Mooloolaba Esplanade and Brisbane Road are a few Mooloolaba dining hotspots that shouldn’t be left ignored – especially if dining on holiday is one of your favorite things to do.

The best thing is that these popular dining hubs are situated close together, putting all the best Mooloolaba Esplanade restaurants just a stroll away before, or after, swimming, sunbathing and surfing on Mooloolaba Beach.

The Boat Shed Restaurant

Take the short drive from Mooloolaba to Maroochydore to shop at world-famous Sunshine Plaza, then stop by The Boat Shed Restaurant for another memorable Sunshine Coast dining experience.

The Boat Shed provides casual, yet sophisticated, waterfront dining at the mouth of Maroochy River, with picturesque views across Goat Island and Pincushion Island. The lunch and dinner menu, focused on local produce, is contemporary Australian cuisine at its best, with just a few of its main dishes including pan-fried swordfish, chargrilled lamb rump and south Australian mussels.

For riverfront al fresco dining and some of the best and freshest seafood mains in the region, The Boat Shed shouldn’t go amiss when it’s time for lunch or dinner in Mooloolaba.

Parkyn Parade Seafood Precinct

Parkyn Parade Seafood Precinct is a must-visit hub for the finest and freshest seafood the Sunshine Coast has to offer. A marketplace and fresh fish market, Parkyn Parade Seafood Precinct is where you will find freshly caught shellfish, fish and the famous Mooloolaba king prawns.

These can be sampled onsite or bought to-go for a Mooloolaba barbecue lunch. Alternatively, Parkyn Parade Seafood Precinct is also home to a number of world-class seafood restaurants, including Fish on Parkyn – one of Mooloolaba’s most highly regarded seafood bistros.

Simply put, if seafood is your favourite cuisine, you can’t leave Mooloolaba without visiting Parkyn Parade Seafood Precinct.

Mooloolaba Surf Club

Mooloolaba Beach and The Surf Club Mooloolaba go hand-in-hand. Situated right on the beachfront – and only a short stroll away from our location at Aegean Mooloolaba – Mooloolaba Surf Club offers casual bistro dining with views right across Mooloolaba Beach and the Pacific Ocean.

Whether you need a cool drink to perk you up, a filling lunch or dinner after swimming, or a casual bistro where you can feed the whole family, The Surf Club Mooloolaba has everything to offer across its onsite Boathouse Restaurant, Bayview Bar, Coffee Corner and Surf Club Bar establishments.

Andrew Niebling

We have stayed at the Aegean a couple of times now, its just been repainted on the outside and has got new balcony furniture. The ocean or marina views are great rooms to get, especially in summer as the balcony’s are in the shade from early afternoon onwards. Its a great location right in the heart of Mooloolaba with great views and easy walking distance to everything. The interior rooms are a little dated but

The location was perfect for us, chasing a beachy holiday! Walking distance to everything! The size of the apartment was a perfect little getaway for our family. Would definitely return & recommend.

Debra B

Stayed here for 2 weeks, location is fabulous and unit was spacious and comfortable. The whole complex is clean the pool was great and the spa on our roof top great. Bathroom was a little on the small sign but manageable. The managers are lovely and made us feel quite welcome. We enjoyed our stay and would definately rebook at the Aegean again hopefully soon.

Prof and Mrs Pilsner

We stayed in a 2 bedroom apartment, which was a perfect size for a family with two teenagers. The location is perfect, with everything you could need within easy walking distance and great views. The apartments are clean, and the shared facilities well maintained. In particular it was great that the pool was heated warm enough that you could swim even in winter – we took advantage of it every day. The private rooftop balcony
