May 2016 Newsletter

May 2016 Newsletter May 2016 newsletter. Mooloolaba Beach was the scene of sprints and flags events for the Australian National Surf Life Saving Championships in April. The beach in front of the Surf Club was sectioned off and groomed. A large spectator stand was erected. Maroochydore and Alex beaches hosted other events over the ten days of competition. We were impressed with the organisation involved and congratulate the three surf clubs which hosted the event, the thousands of competitors, administrators and officials who took part.

November Newsletter 2015

Welcome to our November Newsletter 2015. We  enjoyed the spectacle of a couple of early storms in the latter part of October. Some of our guests really enjoy the splendour of a good lightning show over the sea! We managed to get an hour to visit the Buderim Garden Festival. It was fabulous – the flowers and plants entered for competition was wide ranging. There were also some very knowledgeable people selling plants. We were delighted to see the garden photo competition entries and art inspired by gardens. We have made a note for 2016 already The Sunshine Coast Sky...

Mooloolaba- refresh the soul.

Mooloolaba is the ideal place to refresh the soul – the open bay allows a view to the horizon, with the comings and goings of all kinds of water-craft to watch as it goes about its busy-ness: container ships entering and departing Moreton Bay, the pilot boats, coast guard boat, fishing boats of all descriptions including tuna trawlers, prawn boats, commercial fishers, weekend fishers, and runabouts; surf boat crews, dragon boat crews, yachts of all sizes, jet skis, stand-up paddle boarders, are all part of the patterns to wonder at.

Mooloolaba Beach Access steps and stairs

Mooloolaba Beach is a 2.4km stretch of beautiful white sand. Accessing the beach is possible from many points. The designs of the individual Mooloolaba Beach access points are quite varied, from the solid concrete steps at the Northern part of the beach surrounded by rock pools, through to sandy cuttings between casuarina trees. Some are just a footpath that finishes when it reaches the sand and some are elegant aluminium constructions designed to withstand the king tides and storms that ravage the coast from time to time, taking large quantities of sand, before bringing the sand back a short time later. Mooloolaba’s iconic Loo...

Family Holidays in Winter

Family holidays in winter were a feature of this writer’s childhood. Not everyone can get to holiday with family during the summer months. The writer has many memories of winter holidays because that’s when the cows were “dry” and Dad could get a couple of days away. Here in Mooloolaba the weather never really gets too cold to enjoy the beach. The sea temperature rarely goes below 20 degrees C. With the life guards on patrol year round it is still a good place to have a swim if you are from cooler climates. With families, children seem to enjoy...

Winter beach

The great thing about living at the beach is you get to enjoy the moods, colours and patterns of the waves and sand as they change through out the year. The cooler colours of the sea and waters off Mooloolaba beach are enchanting: the shades of greys and sea greens, bluish hues and contrasting white of wave caps and foam. Walking along the beach during the winter months is special as there are few people, some seagulls and some crabs scuttling around. Mostly winters bring calmer seas, and the water temperature rarely drops below 20 degrees Celsius. A winter storm brings added...
