Santa Claus knows his way around a sleigh – but what about a surf boat? Jolly Old Saint Nick will makes an impressive entrance to the Sunshine Coast every Christmas Eve – not from the skies but from the sea. Before his mammoth flight around the world later that night – Santa drops by Mooloolaba Beach to greet the kids.
This has become somewhat of a tradition over the past few years – hundreds of people have turned out in the past to meet Santa.
Santa usually makes his grand entrance about 6pm just outside the Mooloolaba Surf Life Saving Club with the fireworks following an hour later.
