The main surfing beach is obviously popular with
surfers, although Maroochydore also hosts a number of
sheltered beaches popular with families, along Cotton
Tree Esplanade which is opposite the Maroochy River. The
Maroochydore beaches are backed by pretty parkland which
is ideal for picnics or walking.
Cotton Tree, an ocean-side
suburb on the Maroochy River, is a popular holiday spot,
well-serviced by holiday flats and a caravan park. The
rivermouth, which leisure craft now ply, was once the
site of a large timbermill from where the local lumber
was shipped to Brisbane by paddle-steamer. There are
river cruises and great fishing opportunities in this
aquatic paradise called Maroochydore.
In Maroochydore there are plenty of attractions that you
can enjoy, as well as a number of different festivals
and competitions. Maroochydore Australia is home to a
number of surfing and surf lifesaving events. Surfing is
a popular sport at Maroochydore, along with boating,
fishing and jet skiing.

associated with any thriving business centre,

biggest shopping venues with Sunshine Plaza and Big Top
