Maroochydore is a coastal suburb of the Sunshine Coast, Queensland, Australia, and is the central suburb of the Maroochydore urban centre.

Maroochydore contains a popular surf beach. The Maroochy River's southern bank forms a virtually unbroken stretch of parkland and picnic spots in the area known as Cotton Tree. An oceanway encourages sustainable travel by pedestrians and cyclists along the beaches.

Maroochydore is also a major commercial area of the Sunshine Coast with most shopping precincts located in the central business district. It is home to the Sunshine Plaza[2] shopping centre and the Sunshine Coast's major bus interchange for TransLink services on Sunshine Coast.
