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