Travel Tips from people who've been to Caloundra
Delightful holiday beach resort town within easy reach of Brisbane.
In recent times Caloundra has changed. Once a truly classic Queensland retirement town - units with ocean views, senior citizens making their way carefully along the beachfront, old men tossing fishing lines in Pumicestone Channel - it has now become a mixture of young commuters . Noted for its excellent surf beaches, extending southwards for 30 km from Buddina Beach through Kings and Bulcock Beaches at Caloundra city centre, south to Pelican Waters in the Pumicestone Channel. South of Currimundi Beach is Dicky Beach, named after the SS Dicky which ran aground there in 1893. One of the more popular of the area's beaches, it is patrolled every day, offering swimming, fishing and surfing, as well as children's play facilities, a skate park and picnic-barbecue facilities. The Caloundra Markets are held every Sunday from 7.00 a.m. to noon on West Terrace (adjacent the hospital), while the Caloundra Twilight Time Markets are held Fridays from 5.00 p.m. to 9.00 p.m. at Centrepoint Plaza, in Minchinton St.
Come to Caloundra for the Caloundra Music Festical - held annually in October, this festival is into its second year and is already rating amongst some of the best for the country to attend.
What more could you ask for than lying back under the Queensland Spring sun, listening to your favourite artists, as well as a few surprise newcomers, whilst you watch the waves roll in from the shores beyond the stage? A weekend for all ages with a wealth of activities going begging on the beautiful Sunshine Coast.
If you just want to relax for a while, have access to numerous stunning beaches without the crowds of the Goldcoast, Caloundra is a great place to unwind for a couple of days :)
