The Sunshine Coast's hottest destination

Getting Here

Mooloolaba is one of the most popular locations when coming to the Sunshine Coast due to its easy access, central location, local airport and proximity to Brisbane, Australia’s third largest city!

Arriving to the Sunshine Coast is made easy for both international and domestic travellers. Our local airport is situated in Marcoola, just a short distance north of Mooloolaba, the hub of the Sunshine Coast. 

With multiple daily direct flights operating from Melbourne, Sydney Adelaide and Auckland during the winter months, there are plenty of opportunities to jump on a flight and head north to the beautiful beaches and sunshine in Mooloolaba. 

Coming from Brisbane, Gympie or even more locally? Mooloolaba has a range of access opportunities through the Sunshine Coast’s vast rail and bus networks. Want to head south from Noosa, then jump in the car and cruise down the Sunshine Motorway for 40min and you will be in the heart of Mooloolaba! Planning a cheeky trip north from Caloundra, then you can expect a pleasant 30min drive up Nicklin Way before arriving in Mooloolaba.
