Australia’s number one tourist attraction, with over 1,000 animals spread across 70 acres, you can get up close and personal with the wildlife or check out the spectacular Wildlife Warriors show in the world famous Australia Zoo Crocoseum and you will get to see their motto in action – conservation through education. See the tigers play, feed an elephant, watch a crocodile launch itself from the water or cuddle a koala.
Bring your own or hire a 4WD. Enjoy a guided tour of Fraser Island, with its white sandy beaches flanked by strikingly coloured sand cliffs, over 100 freshwater lakes and ancient rainforest.
Visit the famous Eumundi Markets, held on Wednesdays and Saturdays, where you will find organic fruit and vegetables and homemade preserves. Antique shoppers should visit The Old Butter Factory Markets. Make sure you get there early so you don’t miss out on some of the festivities or the great bargains.
Spend a few hours at the Mooloolaba Wharf, wandering through the various shops, or enjoying lunch at one of the many restaurants. Enjoy a Canal Cruise, enjoy a sunset kayak, hire a jet ski or learn to surf. Walk along the Mooloolaba Rock Wall, which takes about 20 minutes. The area is also great for scuba diving, including the HMAS Brisbane.
