Drovers Pizza Cruise


Owner/operators husband-and-wife team Shane and Jodie have been involved in the pizza and restaurant industry for over 20 years and have had several restaurants on the Sunshine Coast as well as back in Melbourne. Shane learned his skills as a pizzaiolo in such iconic places as Lygon St. and Chapel St. In 2014, they came up with the idea of combining their passion for pizza with their love of the Mooloolaba River, and so the concept of building a custom wood fired cruising restaurant began. Five years later, that concept is now a reality with The Drover, conducting regular pizza, craft beer, and wine tasting cruises departing from the Mooloolaba Marina daily.

So whether it is a lunch time or sunset cruise with fresh wood fired pizza, or maybe a craft beer or wine tasting cruises showcasing a variety of locally brewed craft beers from the local breweries and wines from some of the Hinterland wineries, we have a cruise to satisfy all passengers looking for an experience like no other.

Running monthly Meet the Brewer & Wine Steward cruises, The Drover will be showcasing a particular brewery or winery on the Sunshine Coast or Hinterlands for that month with their top choice line of craft beers available on tap aboard The Drover, and wineries bringing a select and seasonal range of wines on board, giving guests the opportunity to talk-one-on one with the brewer/wine steward. All of this is something unique and different to any other experience on the Mooloolaba  River.
