We dropped in as we were driving past and thought that it looked good. Unfortunately, more than half of the stores seemed to be closed which gave it quite a depressing atmosphere. The ones that were there (mainly restaurants) looked new and inviting. It is...More

For so long this has been a run down ‘tacky’ area. The only reason I would come here is to go whale watching on ‘Whale One.’ There has been a lot written about a big renovation to transform the wharf but we are a long...More

The Mooloolaba Wharf is being re developed as a centre for food and drink. The completed outlets look great and fit with the location and ambience. A must visit when in Mooloolaba

The tired look of the wharf is being shaken off with some great new foodie places. A tavern impresses with a (surprise!) nautical theme, plus several other cafes & restaurants new to the area. One of note... & very popular ... is Rice Boi. Sammy...More

Has been a couple of years since last there and found it in a sorry state this time. Looking very tired and sad with many shops now closed and vacant. Disappointing to see where it had got to.
