A new writer, I live on the beautiful Sunshine Coast. I am always finding something different to explore...

Beat stress with a beach walk
Ever popular, Mooloolaba is one of my all time favourite beach walks. There are rock pools to explore, or walk along to the Spit.

Once I have browsed the shops I like to grab a takeaway coffee from my favourite cafe Oliver's and stroll over to the beach.

Coffee from Olivers
What a great way to start the day

Often I will sit on the grass watching the energetic ones jogging along listening to their ipods, people walking their dogs, which is an ever popular pastime, and taking in the panoramic views from Point Cartwright to the south and Coolum to the north, with Mudjimba (Old Woman) Island keeping watch.

A 40 minute walk to the Spit

Mountains sit ghostly in the background while the Maroochy buildings line for foreground.

Often a pod of dolphins or whales will put on a show if you're lucky enough to be watching.

Walking along the beach or paths will take you to the Mooloolaba Spit. Personally I prefer the pathways as there is more to see.

Heading past the Mooloolaba Surf Club a boardwalk will take you to the Mooloolaba Spit. Please take care as the pathways are for bike riders and walkers alike.

There are plenty of parks for the kiddies, picnic spots, toilet facilities and stairs down to the patrolled beach.

As you leave the boardwalk, a concrete path continues all the way to the spit with plenty of shade from the trees. Arriving at the Spit end of Mooloolaba you will find great seafood shopping and dining.

Great place for families

A popular spot for families there are toilet facilities, a great kiddies park and plenty of barbecue areas. What better way to dine than fresh seafood straight to barbie...yum!!!

Heading into the marina
popular for fishing and boating

Continuing down the walk will take you through the tree lined path to the Mooloolaba Spit, a favourite place for boaties and fishermen alike.


Sunset is a wonderful time for this walk as you sit on the end of the spit watching the boats come in for the night and the sun setting to the east.

The walk from the Esplanade Mooloolaba to the Spit takes about 40 minutes depending on how fast you walk and is an easy walk with no real fitness needed.
