Maroochydore is a 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.
