Caloundra

Gateway to southern Queensland’s winter playground of the Sunshine Coast, Caloundra, just 96 kilometres north of Brisbane, is wealthy in both surf beaches and sheltered waterways tailored for fishing, boating, water-skiing and sail-boarding.

Caloundra is the business centre for the area, but developing villages such as Kawana Waters and Pelican Waters are quite self-contained and are only a few minutes from stunning surf beaches. If you prefer calmer waters, Bulcock Beach, which features a coastal boardwalk and is a favoured spot of anglers, and Golden Beach are the go.

Caloundra also has direct access to Pumicestone Passage – the stretch of water separating Bribie from the mainland – which is a haven for anglers, boaties, water-skiers and sail-boarders. Caloundra also has its share of man-made attractions.

Caloundra is the doorstep to the Sunshine Coast’s beautiful and absorbing hinterland where arts and craft galleries abound. The town’s Racecourse is one of the State’s best and hosts regular Sunday meetings.

Distance from Brisbane (State Capital): 96 Kilometres.

Where Are Australia's Best Beaches?

Australia's Best Beaches

Australia has miles and miles of shoreline but which beaches are really great? Ultimately it depends on what you're looking for in a beach. Pristine wilderness without a single footprint in sight, the sparkle of cosmopolitan high rise on the waters edge, the adrenalin pumping roar of a powerful surf beach, or quite simply the perfect white squeaky sand that squelches between your toes.
