Frequently Asked Questions

Are there any good fishing spots nearby?

We have everything here – I we mean everything. Take an escorted day trip and go Big Game Fishing, fish the outer reef or the Maroochy River. Hire your own boat and potter around at your own pace or just throw a line in along the beach.

Are there any good walking trails nearby?

Definitely. If you like walking then we have great paths all the way from Mooloolaba to Maroochydore. Cotton Tree is a great spot to start from and you can walk for kilometres along trails or the beaches. You can even ride your bike and take the children along.

Are your apartments close to restaurants?

Yes. We are close to everything from first class, award winning restaurants to cafes, pizza parlours, coffee shops, bars and everything in between. You will have no problem finding something that suits your tastes and your budget.

Does every room have a view?

All of our modern apartments have magnificent ocean views with expansive balconies.

How close is the beach?

Directly across the road is the Alexandra Headlands Beach and just a few minutes’ walk away is Mooloolaba Beach. Traffic lights are located in front of Mandolin Resort for a safer crossing.

How close is the shopping?

Sunshine Plaza is only a short 20 minutes’ walk away, and being one of Queensland’s largest shopping centres it has everything you need. There are lots of boutique shops and smaller shopping centres and plazas in Maroochydore. All are within an easy walk or you can take the bus which stops outside every 15 minutes. When you arrive at Mandolin Resort just ask our friendly staff and they will point you in the right direction.

How far away are Mooloolaba and Noosa?

Mooloolaba is just a few minutes’ scenic walk along the beach from Mandolin Resort and Noosa is around a 30 minute drive.

Is the beach safe to swim?

Yes. Alexandra Beach is fully patrolled every day all year round. We are located just opposite the Surf Life Saving Club and it is only a few minutes’ walk to a safe and securely patrolled beach. And we have some of Australia’s best surf here as well – with ‘The Bluff’ just across the road – and is safe for experienced or novice surfers.

Is there public transport close by?

Yes. The local bus stops every 15 minutes just outside Mandolin Resort. This is great for local trips but you can also travel down to Brisbane and the airport or anywhere around the Sunshine Coast.
