Waterfalls and Walks on the Sunshine Coast
We all love a leisurely walk along Mooloolaba Beach, especially at sunset. Why not explore a little further a field and discover some of the great waterfalls and walks that the Sunshine Coast has to offer.
The Buderim Forest Waterfall walk is a short drive from Mooloolaba and is located less than 1 kilometre from Buderim Village. Escape into this 45 hectare oasis, get back to nature and enjoy the many varieties or trees and ferns, babbling waterfalls, and native fauna. Why not make a booking at Harry’s on Buderim, the iconic restuarant that is positioned on the edge of the Buderim Forest Park. Set in a 140 year old homestead and offering locally produce and seasonal menus, Harry’s is a taste of Sunshine Coast.
Kondalilla Falls: A leisurely 40Km drive from Mooloolaba, north-west via Montville brings you to the Kondalilla Falls National Park, in the Blackall Ranges. The Kondalilla Falls circuit is a 5Km walk requiring a medium level of fitness, it has gentle downward slopes but there are a lot of steps on the return journey.
The walk starts at the top of the stunning Skene Creek which falls 90 metres down to the rainforest floor – an awesome stunning spectacle.
Gardeners Falls: This is freshwater swimming at its best. Gardeners Falls at Maleny is a secluded jewel just 45Km west of Coolum Beach. Located not far from Falls Creek Road at Obi Obi, it is just a short walk to the falls from the sealed car park and is one of the prettiest waterways in Australia.
Booloumba Falls and Gorge: Located within Kenilworth State Forest. Drive down Sunday Creek Road, 7Km past Kenilworth and take the turnoff for Booloumba Creek picnic and camping areas. These falls are a short 3Km walk from here and you will love the large rock pool above the falls – though they can be very popular on weekends.
Located in First Avenue, you will love the great central location of this resort. Walk to the Mooloolaba Esplanade, Main Beach and the Wharf precinct. Take advantage of the Sunshine Coast walking paths and head out for that early morning walk…a great way to get the blood pumping and explore a little more of the Sunshine Coast.
You will be spoilt for choice with a great range of cafes and restaurants at your fingertips. Seek out the weekend farmers market at Kawana or Noosa for fresh local produce, cheeses, meats and olive, perfect for those nights when you would prefer to self cater.
You will find this very comfortable Mooloolaba resort is ideally located and the perfect choice for your Sunshine Coast stay.
