Tours & Attractions

Spinnaker Quays guests enjoy convenient access to many local attractions! A beach holiday at Mooloolaba can be complemented with a wide range of activities for you and your family.

A few suggestions:


We are able to arrange golf at Twin Waters at special rates for guests. Other courses for fun include Maroochy River, Headlands, Mt Coolum, and Beerwah.

Sealife Mooloolaba (formerly Underwater World Sealife)

If you’re staying for a week or more we suggest getting a VIP pass that entitles you to unlimited visits during your holiday... and it’s just down the road!
If you have younger children:

  • Purchase your family ticket.
  • Go in early so as to see the Seal Show.
  • Wander around until there's a bit of tiredness, get a stamp on your arm, come back have a rest, then go back later to see the rest of the displays and make it an enjoyable day!
