Venue Review: The Yacht Club

The Sunshine Coast’s largest dance floor resides at this Mooloolaba wedding venue, and it overlooks the ocean. The Yacht Club will accommodate up to 180 guests, and will tailor a package to suit a wedding of small numbers, too. The professional and flexible wedding coordinator helps you every step of the way – even arranging a water taxi for you and your guests to and from your canal-front accommodation. Or BYO watercraft! 

The charming location in Mooloolaba, being one of the Sunshine Coast’s most popular coastal towns, offers the perfect waterfront experience. There are beach or canal-front ceremony locations within walking distance, making it nice and easy for you and your guests to navigate your way through your wedding day.
