Caloundra

The holiday memories of a lifetime are all within reach at Caloundra - where the Sunshine Coast begins. Experience the uncrowded beaches with views of the heritage listed Glass House Mountains, the sparkling waters of the Pumicestone Passage, and a breath-taking coastal headland with interesting coves and sandy beaches.

Caloundra takes in several beaches each with their own personality and loyal devotees. There's Golden Beach, Bulcock Beach, Kings Beach, Shelly Beach, Moffat Beach, Dicky Beach and Currimundi.

The Caloundra Coastal Path stretches along some of the most scenic shorelines you could ever wish to see. The path is a continuous coastal link from Golden Beach in the south, around Caloundra Headland then Moffat Headland, before heading north following the long, sandy beaches of Kawana to Point Cartwright. Along the way it passes some historic sites including Military Jetty used for military operations in World War II, and the heritage listed Kings Beach Bathing Pavillion constructed in 1937. There are also magnificent views to enjoy at Moffat Beach, Kings Beach, Happy Valley and Bulcock Beach. The walk traverses some remnant coastal vegetation between Currimundi and Dicky Beach.

Kings Beach is Caloundra’s premier surfing beach and just behind the beach itself is a modern playground area, barbecue facilities and an amphitheatre for major events. A giant water fountain provides hours of entertainment while in front of the Surf Club there's a unique foreshore swimming pool.

Explore the coastline on a cycling or walking tour, on a cruise, by kayak or hop on a jet ski. If you love a round of golf then tee off at the challenging Greg Norman-designed Club Pelican. Nearby Corbould Park is one of the finest regional thoroughbred racing facilities in the country.

Major attractions in the area include Australia Zoo, Aussie World and the Ettamogah Pub, Big Kart Track and the Queensland Air Museum.

It only takes one look and you’re hooked on Caloundra as the place to refresh and rejuvenate.
