Mooloolaba River Canal Cruise Review
from the Mooloolaba Wharf 3 times a day is a fabulous canal cruise,
that will surely get your head dreaming of mansions and the lifestyle
of the mega rich.
Fabulous Sunshine Coast waterfront mansions, with
price tags of up to 10 million dollars, stand proudly along the waters
edge and are certain dream catchers for those wishing for a better life.
The Canal Cruise Company operates from the Mooloolaba Wharf aboard
the restored river ferry " Mudjimba" Your skipper keeps up a very informative
commentary, as you cruise the Kawana Canals and Mooloolah River Islands.
One of the many highlights of the canal cruise is the opportunity to
take a photo of the late Steve Irwin's boat "Croc One". This
is the boat that Steve Irwin was diving from on that fateful day a stingray
took his life. The luxurious Croc One is rarely used now, and stays
moored outside the Irwin's house on the canal's waterfront.
When the land first was offered for sale, people regarded the Sunshine
Coast canal area as a possible flood catastrophe and shied away from
buying blocks. Going for as little as seven thousand dollars, people
with foresight cashed in big time.
The area was flood free when Brisbane
was badly flooded in 1974, which started a building spree and today
a waterfront block would sell for over 1 million dollars. That is if
any were to become available.
cruise will take you past the Mooloolaba Marina and the local Sunshine
Coast fishing fleet, where prawn and tuna trawlers tie up to unload
their fresh catch and make ready for another days work.
If they are
around, the skipper will slow and feed the pelicans that frequent the
area or give the many silver gulls a few fish as you pass by.
Yet it is the luxurious houses that steal the show as you gently glide
in the calm water of the canal and lagoons. The Mooloolaba Canal Cruise
is deemed as one of the best attractions of the Sunshine Coast area
and we can wholeheartedly give the cruise our personal tick of approval.
The cruise takes just over an hour and at the price, is well worth the money. A great value packed cruise and certain
to start you dreaming of a better life.
