A Unique Restaurant at The Wharf Mooloolaba

Whether it be dining in caves in Italy, or trees in Thailand, there’s no denying that unique restaurants and dining experiences are becoming more and more popular all over the globe. And now, people can have a unique dining experience here at The Wharf Mooloolaba on board a permanently moored and restored wooden fishing trawler as part of the latest local offering – Prawn Star. 

A Cairns Icon

The first-ever Prawn Star restaurant began welcoming diners in 2014 and today serves thousands of happy customers at the picturesque Cairns Marlin Marina. With rave reviews from tourists and locals alike, it made perfect sense to invite the Cairns icon to join the already fantastic offering here at The Wharf. 

Business owner Danny Moore tells us, “we pride ourselves on creating an informal and fun atmosphere where our customers can enjoy the company of family and friends and make new friends while having a cold beverage. Culture is king at the Prawn Star.

“We were keen to replicate that experience in South-East Queensland, and we believe we have found the ideal location at The Wharf.”
