It's that time of year again!
The streets and canals of the Sunshine Coast will be lit up with colourful lights and Christmas displays, and we have a list of all the best light displays to check out on the Coast this Christmas!
Mooloolaba Yacht Club Christmas Boat Parade
The Mooloolaba Yacht Club Christmas Boat Parade is a Christmas lights display with a difference – you’ll find decorated hulls alongside houses!
A flotilla of local boats will light up The Mooloolah River with the spirit of the season again this year for the 15h annual Mooloolaba Christmas Boat Parade, organised by Mooloolaba Yacht Club.
Join the fun on Saturday, 22 December from 6.30pm and cheer on the boats as they stream down the Mooloolah River and Kawana Waters’ canal.
The Parade will start at 6:30pm and go anti-clockwise from The Mooloolaba Wharf to the end of Mooloolah Island, then down the main Kawana canal to Lawries Marina, back to the river, along past La Balsa Park and then back to The Mooloolaba Wharf for judging.
The best viewing locations are:
- Charles Clarke Reserve, River Esplanade, Mooloolaba
- The Wharf Mooloolaba & Penny Lane
- La Balsa Park, Buddina
Note: Charles Clarke Reserve is currently undergoing council works and therefore has limited space, however Penny Lane, La Balsa Park and the Wharf complex have brilliant vantage points.
Be sure to head down early to grab your spot and enjoy the festive atmosphere!
