Inspired by all things in, on and under the sea, the Mooloolaba Foreshore Festival will feature the latest parkland additions including an epic adventure playground, oceanfront picnic and barbecue areas as well as sensational viewing decks for all those magical photo moments.

At 'Ocean Alley' on the Esplanade, there will be ocean displays and workshops, delicious food, free rides and face painting and heaps of activities for everyone to enjoy. Book a table to dine in at one of the popular esplanade cafes and/or restaurants or 'bring your own' picnic, spread a rug on a new grass patch and enjoy a beautiful winter sunset.
