October – What’s on at The Wharf Mooloolaba

This month, a spooktacular Halloween heads to The Wharf, and we bid farewell to the gentle giants of the sea as October brings the FIN-ish of the 2023 whale season!

From new retail openings that promise fresh experiences to a stellar lineup of outdoor activities, plus food and drink events hosted by our fantastic teams… if a trip to The Wharf isn’t already pencilled into your calendar this month, then make room!

Whale season is coming to a close!

October marks the last month of Mooloolaba’s 2023 Whale Season – and what a season it was! 

But If you think you’ve missed the boat – don’t fret! The season is not over, not yet. 

You still have an opportunity to book a unique Whale Experience with one of our incredible teams at The Wharf. Enjoy the adrenaline rush of Sunreef’s Swim with Whales tour, or soak it all in with the premiere Whale Watching experience aboard Whale One. We have the bucket list experiences (still) waiting for you! And if you can’t make it this year, that’s OK – we’ll see you next year at the Humpback Highway that is Mooloolaba.

New Retail Opening! Saltwater Experiences

Following the successful launch of Saltwater Eco Tours in 2020, we are excited to announce the launch of their new retail store – Saltwater Experiences!

A dedicated First Nations retail store located right in the heart of The Wharf,  Saltwater Experiences showcases Indigenous products, artists, designers, food makers,  business owners and much more. 

Saltwater Experiences allows the local community and visitors to the region to connect with authentic, high-quality Indigenous products and assist in growing the region’s cultural inclusiveness, awareness and tourism economy. 

Congratulations to Simon & the entire Saltwater team on this exciting new venture.
