Mudjimba 4564, QLD
Twin Waters Resort is built around a large artificial lake, 1 km north of the Maroochy River. It parallels part of the southern 1.5 km of beach (1544B) which runs on down to the river mouth (Fig. 4.121). The Esplanade runs the length of the beach with a car park on the southern spit. The resort has an access track to the beach at the northern end of the resort, together with an amenity block. Rips persist right to the river mouth, where there is a deep tidal channel and strong tidal currents.
This is a long, potentially hazardous beach with persistent rips and strong currents. You should only swim in the surf at the patrolled Marcoola Beach, or under the supervision of the lifeguards at Coolum and Twin Waters resorts. Always check for rips before entering, stay on the attached inner bar and clear of the rip channels and deeper outer trough.
