Caloundra, Sunshine Coast
As the southern gateway to the Sunshine Coast, Caloundra City offers the type of 'get away from it all' holiday so many enjoy. One of Queensland's favourite family holiday destinations is Caloundra. The big attractions are its special relaxed Sunshine Coast lifestyle, the sun, sand and surf.
Caloundra has more than 30 kilometres of beaches, stretching from Bribie Island in the south through to Kawana in the north. The beautiful Pumicestone Passage is an added attraction and a haven for lovers of all water sports. Certainly a top spot for fishing, it also harbours two of the most popular beaches on the coast - Bulcock and Golden beaches.
unsurpassed views visit Mary Cairncross Park, near Maleny at the
southern end of the Blackall Ranges and take in the Glass House Mountains
and an uninterrupted panorama of the blue Pacific all the way to
Moreton Island and the skyline of Brisbane.
The Glass House Mountains comprise four spectacular mountains - Beerwah, Tibrogargan, Ngungun and Coonowrin which are fully protected within separate National Parks - ideal for bush walking through open eucalypt forest and for the more adventurous, a climber's paradise. Incredible views can be experienced from the summits.
These form the centrepiece of a visually fascinating region - with tropical fruit plantations, pine forests, delightful tourist drives, scenic walks, waterfalls and an abundance of native flora and fauna.
Wildlife is aplenty - including a family or two of wallabies which often rest up on the lovely golf links at Beerwah. The townships throughout the Hinterland each have a charm of their own, along with a wonderful range of restaurants and arts and crafts shops.
Bribie Island, Caloundra
Island is a 32 kilometre stretch of coastline providing a mecca for
fishermen and is separated from the mainland by Pumicestone Channel.
A flora and fauna reserve, the Island is largely undeveloped and
offers a relaxing and peaceful environment.
So much to do and see there's something for everyone in beautiful Caloundra.
