 End of the beach

Mooloolaba is situated on the Sunshine Coast just north of Brisbane in sunny Queensland and there is a plethora of fun things to do around here if you decide to stay at a backpackers hostel in the area. One of the most popular attractions is the famous Underwater World, a giant aquarium in which you walk through tunnels that run through the middle of the pools so that you can watch the fish swim above and around you. For those who are game, they also have opportunities for you to get in the tanks and swim with the sharks.

Mooloolaba is also close to Australia Zoo, the family zoo founded by the father of the late wildlife expert Steve Irwin; to this day the zoo is still run by his wife and kids. The zoo is one of the more open and animal-friendly zoos you will find in the world; there is also an amazing legacy to Steve Irwin there for fans of the Crocodile Hunter to pay their respects. The zoo is expansive and you can enjoy different shows during the day, including the feeding of the crocodiles, and other really cool things.

Food is also a big thing in this area. Food places of interest that you may want to visit are the Ginger Factory, the Big Pineapple Sunday Market, the nut and chocolate factory, some of the many strawberry farms in the area, or the cheese factory. And for those who are just looking to spend some time on the beach, it is a great place to hang out and enjoy the sand and surf (wave-riding lessons are offered here too).

Hostels in Mooloolaba are located close to the beach and in the main area of town. You should be able to ask at your Mooloolaba hostel for information on where you can find food, attractions, and anything else that you may need during your stay.
