Often referred to as the beating heart of the Sunshine Coast, Maroochydore is where you can enjoy an ocean dip during the day and a cocktail at night.


From the seaside suburb of Cotton Tree – perfect for families - is a popular place for a picnic or BBQ and true to its name, it is dotted with sprawling native cotton trees, to the surfing hotpot that is Alexandra Headland, there is something for everyone.


Take a stroll along the scenic coastal walk stretching from Cotton Tree to Alexandra Headland and soak it all in.


In light of the current COVID-19 situation, please check with individual businesses regarding operations.

Feast on gourmet delights by the sidewalk, sip a cocktail in a bar, or soak up some live music along Ocean Street in Maroochydore, a vibrant hive of cultural activity. Or head over to Sunshine Plaza, the largest shopping centre on the Sunshine Coast, where you will find hundreds of retail stores, restaurants and cinemas.
