Kayaking in Lake Currimundi
Canoeing, kayaking and stand up paddleboarding at Currimundi Lake is a top way to enjoy some water fun without the waves. The lake is a fantastic spot for younger kids to paddle in the shallow waters safely with loads of space for a marquee to make a day of it.
Hire your boards right on the lake’s edge at Thrills Espresso and wrap up the day with fish and chips, ice-creams or a smoothie from one of the two cafes at the mouth of the creek.
Currimundi is arguably one of the best places on the coast to spend the day with the kids. Big or small they’re bound to have a ball, so get amongst it next time you’re in Kawana.
Mooloolah River Mouth, Mooloolaba, Sunshine Coast
Nestled at the foot of Point Cartwright and adjoining Mooloolaba Spit, La Balsa park has it all for families. With extensive playgrounds and multiple BBQ areas set on the banks of the sparkling Mooloolah River, is a hot spot of fun and relaxation.
Enjoy a swim or snorkel in the calm waters or stand at the end of the rock wall and watch the yachts and boats cruise by. Head for the surf around the point or challenge your family to a foot race up the grassy hill of Point Cartwright, before rambling back down.
The history behind the park’s name ‘La Balsa’ is full of adventure too, so it’s worth investigating during your day out. We won’t give it away, but here’s a hint: Ahoy from South America!
The coastlines of Kawana, including Buddina, Wurtulla, Birtinya, Warana and Currimundi offer some of the most pristine beaches in the world with clean white sands, consistent surf and life savers stations making sure parents can feel at ease with their kids in the water.
