The Sunshine Coast Beaches – Day Two

December 6, 2006

The Mooloolaba BeachThis morning, we set out pretty early to explore some of the beaches. We went to visit the lighthouse at Point Cartwright in Mooloolaba. The beach here is really magnificent – white and long with calm, azure blue seas.

The delicious SizzlerWe then took a drive along the coast and stopped off a Marichydore (interesting names – they have Aboriginal orgins). Here, we went for lunch at Sizzler. This was a delicious trip down memory lane as Uncle Jules took my family there when we first visited Sydney in 1994. It made a great impression. The restaurant is centred around an extensive buffet, which costs $11 for a never-ending plate. There are soups, salads, pasta and the yummiest potato skins. I ate my fill and then finished it off with a self-made ice-cream sundae complete with smarties, marshies and oreo cookie crumbles – yum!!!!

We then walked off our lunch at the Sunshine Beach Plaza – which is a pretty big mall with all the main Ozzie chain stores.

Our last stop for the day was a game of cave putt-putt – it was a very tricky course but we had good fun. I guess I shouldn’t really admit this, but Jeff beat me…not by much though.
