Mooloolah is located off the Steve Irwin Way (formerly Glass House Mountains Tourist Drive) via Mooloolah Connection Road with neighbouring communities of Glenview and Palmview being located just off the M1. Mooloolah is aboriginal for ‘black snake’. It is a peaceful, rural town with a variety of things to do.
You can grab a pint at the Ettamogah Pub, a restaurant and bar in an oddly proportioned architectural building, which is a popular focal point for photographs. The Pub is situated on the M1 at Palmview. Behind the Pub is a theme park based on a fairground concept called Aussie World.
Still looking for something to do, go horseback riding at the Mooloolah Valley Riding Centre, an Aussie dude ranch. The ranch also has some cute accommodation options. There are also walks and picnic spots to enjoy in the surrounds of Ewen Maddock Dam, just minutes from Mooloolah.
