Visit Sunshine Coast CEO Simon Latchford said with one of Australia's Top 10 beaches on TripAdvisor as the playground, Mooloolaba is brimming with incredible food experiences, immersive encounters and a hub for iconic events.
“As an extension of our Come to Life campaign launched earlier in the year, this is an enticing compilation of hero Mooloolaba ‘must-dos’ that tell a powerful story and will resonate with potential visitors to the Sunshine Coast. A suite of images representing our brand pillars has also been produced to accompany the video content.
“Following the success of last year, the first half of the 2017 has continued to be busy for the Sunshine Coast as we experience steady increases in domestic and international visitors. These results would not be possible without the support of our tourism operators and the power of groups working together.
“This initiative is another example of our organisation promoting the Sunshine Coast by shining the spotlight on a star destination and working in collaboration with Mooloolaba Business and Tourism and Sunshine Coast Council. We will continue to deliver more of these exciting outcomes by working closely with key destinations across the Coast to promote the wider region,” said Simon.
“This campaign will not only remind residents that Mooloolaba is one of the Coast’s most iconic locations, it will also promote it to those people who live in regional Queensland,” Cr Connolly said.
“Mooloolaba Beach makes the top 10 list on TripAdvisor’s best beaches in Australia with its sapphire coloured waters and white sand – making it an excellent holiday haven.
“Besides our pristine beaches, there are also many attractions and excellent restaurants to explore – there is literally something for everyone!”
Mooloolaba Business and Tourism Executive and owner of Lot 104, Bruce Ferguson said it was important to remain competitive with other holiday destinations.
“Mooloolaba Business and Tourism (MB&T) hope this promotion attracts attention back to the natural wonders and activities that a Mooloolaba holiday has to offer.
“Coupled with this we have planned and created a voucher website for local businesses to make offers to visitors via a download to mobile phones. There will be ongoing offers throughout the television campaign. MB&T are also instigating the start of twilight markets along the Esplanade on a Friday night.
“MB&T appreciate the support to achieve this advertising campaign for Mooloolaba and we look forward to the success of this combined effort,” added Mr Ferguson.
The television commercial accurately reflects the five Visit Sunshine Coast brand pillars, leveraging a variety of iconic visitor experiences:
• Contemporary beach culture - family fun on the spectacular shores of Mooloolaba Beach • Wonders of nature - Australia’s first humpback whale swim and Point Cartwright • Innovative food and produce - trawler to plate with Mooloolaba Prawns to dining at Spice Bar (one of Australia’s Top 10 TripAdvisor restaurants) and the additional sidewalk treasures of Mooloolaba Esplanade •Immersive encounters - swimming with seals at SEA LIFE and with humpback whales off the coast of Mooloolaba •Exhilarating events - aerial thrills of Mooloolaba Triathlon. ...

Tow, tow, tow your boat.......All eyes were on Mooloolaba Beach today as the stranded crabbing boat, the Matahari, was towed up the beach, ready for dismantling and removal over the next couple of day...
Craig SeeleyI offered my LARC and I have spare sand floatation tyres which easily could have been made into a dolly to salvage the vessel at less risk to the environment and less cost.
What a wasted carbon footprint!
This boat was actually low risk and easily reserected.
I know this I've done it before!
I understand there are liabilities and bonds involved but don't see the benefits of breaking the vessel up given what I've seen?
After a public voting competition, SEA LIFE Sunshine Coast’s newest residents - two baby Black Blotched Fantail Rays – have today been named Cookies and Cream.
The two female rays were born in ‘Shark Shipwreck’ at SEA LIFE Sunshine Coast on the 20th of May, before moving into the Ray Nursery in the Rocky Shore area which they now call home along with their 15 fellow tankmates.
“Cookies and Cream have a really strong sisterly bond and have been sticking together since day one,” said SEA LIFE Sunshine Coast Senior Aquarist, Amanda Reno. “They are such posers and love having their photo taken. They rest against the glass waiting for their close-up all day long!”
The decision of what to name the new rays was put to the public two weeks ago, and received an impressive 1500 entries from SEA LIFE guests visiting during the school holidays. After shortlisting the top ten names, Cookies and Cream were the clear favourite amongst SEA LIFE Sunshine Coast staff for the rays’ evident likeness to the classic sweet treat.
Renowned local celebrity chef Matt Golinski will showcase his significant knowledge of local produce for the exclusive menu at the black tie event while the McDermott Aviation Group hangar at Sunshine Coast Airport will be transformed with a vintage aviation theme which is sure to delight guests.
“Last year’s event was a great success with around $75,000 raised to support SunnyKids as well as several other local charities, this year the dedicated committee headed by Karen Neuendorf are committed to make the event even more spectacular," Mayor Jamieson said.
“The theme for this year’s Ball is ‘the sky is the limit’ and that really fits in well with where the Sunshine Coast is heading into the future. It’s an exciting time to live on the Sunshine Coast but the fundraising from this event highlights our unique community spirit and commitment to support those who need it most."
SunnyKids President Karen Neuendorf said the Mayoral Ball would continue last year’s theme of elegance and sophistication with limited speeches and fundraising on the night.
"I really think we hit on a winner last year by maximising the amount of time guests had to socialise. This year we will focus on premium food and wine and great entertainment. Guests will enjoy dancing with the big band, as well as socialising with their guests in a really unique location.
“The primary goal of the Ball is to raise community awareness and important funds for the tireless work which SunnyKids undertakes on behalf of our community to support disadvantaged families and we are committed to achieving that via this year’s Mayoral Ball," Karen said.
