Sunshine Coast residents are being urged to break away from their day-to-day and enjoy some stellar events to keep many entertained this month.
From rugby to disc-golf, bowling and canoeing, plus cabaret, the arts, comedy and a free family-friendly festival there really is something for everyone to experience and enjoy.
This weekend, Beach Rugby Australia will take over a section of Mooloolaba Beach for the Beach 5s rugby, which will be a real sport spectacle for locals and visitors to enjoy.
To celebrate the fresh new Mooloolaba Northern Parkland, the Mooloolaba Esplanade will transform with oceans of free family friendly fun on Saturday, November 5, from 10am – 9pm.
