Must Do Experiences


t The Duporth Riverside, we have the very best of both worlds, we have the glistening ocean and our pristine Maroochydore River. This is just one of the reasons why staying here can be both invigorating and refreshing and also calming and relaxing.

On your holiday with us, you can spend time enjoying all of the action-packed water sports that are available on the beach or you can take some time out and commune with nature along the Maroochy River.

Experience the Maroochy River

If you love food, then you will want to explore our fine dining and other eateries along the Maroochydore River. Why not spend a relaxing few hours at the Boat Shed in a lovely spot on Cotton Tree Point overlooking the water? Chose from their a la carte menu or their tapas menu, select a bottle of fine wine and enjoy the beautiful scenery.

Still want more? Then stroll down to the Ebb on Wharf Street for another example of fine dining using only the freshest produce and seafood and with wonderful waterfront views.

With all of our dining opportunities, you will need to work up an appetite and the Maroochy River has plenty of opportunities for you to do just that. Why not spend a relaxing few hours on a river cruise along our pristine waterways or hire a sailboat or kayak and make your own way along the river.

The wildlife along the Maroochydore River is truly spectacular. Birdwatchers come here all year long to catch sight of an abundance of waterbirds, such as Black Ducks, Cormorants and Spoonbills. The area is well known for the flocks of birds that nest along our waterways in this profoundly beautiful and untouched habitat.

The river scenery invites you to take a relaxing stroll along the wooden walkways and into the natural rainforest. Spend some time watching the native birdlife and stop for a cup of latte and a lamington at a local cafe. If you need a bit more excitement, you can even hire a jet ski or go paddle boarding on the river.

You can even throw a line in and catch a fish for your dinner, sign up the family for a fishing trip or drop a line off our private pontoon. The Maroochy River is a source of fun and relaxation for both residents and holiday makers alike and you will find plenty of activities for everyone in the family.

Then, at the end of a wonderful day of experiences on the Maroochy River, you can return to your luxurious and spacious apartment at The Duporth Riverside and watch daylight fade to night, whilst reflecting on your day.
