Can you keep a secret? Neither can we.

That’s why we’re cruising to Gladstone, the only port from which you can access the lesser-known, southern Great Barrier Reef, said to be the most beautiful part. As the gateway to the Sunshine Coast, Mooloolaba is blessed with beautiful beaches and heavenly hinterland. Head to Mooloolaba Esplanade for alfresco dining (make sure to try the famous Mooloolaba prawn). Then hit Mooloolaba Beach, one of Queensland’s best and safest swimming beaches. While in Moreton Island, you can handfeed wild dolphins, try parasailing, quad biking and much more!

"It's so easy to do so many things of an evening as they are all available and all in close vicinity. I can have dinner, drinks, see a show and go dancing all in one night!"
