What can we do in Caloundra?
Caloundra is one of a kind beachside town that makes for a truly lovely place to enjoy your holiday. There is so much in the area to do.
Spend your days soaking up the sun on one of the georgeous beaches or head to the galleries, wineries and restaurants in the spectacular hinterland for a visual feast and a taste sensation.
Some of the best beaches on the entire Sunshine Coast can be found between Pumicestone Passage and Point Cartwright; right here in the Caloundra region. These include the spectaclar Golden Beach and Bulcock Beaches. Check out the family friendly Kings Beach, a world class surfing destination where so many events take place, and Currimundi with its sheltered lake area ideal for the kids to swim in. So often these beach areas are uncrowded, so you can enjoy the sun, sea and sand in peace.
The famous Glass House Mountains are another natural wonder in the area, with hikes and trails that will take you into the heart of the bushland. You may want to check out the Glasshouse Mountains Lookout, which is about ten kilometres from the quaint Glasshouse Mountains township. This National Parks area in the Beerburrum West State Forrest features an observation area with panoramic views of the Glasshouse Mountain peaks, Caloundra, Maroochydore and as far away as Brisbane and Moreton Island. At the observation area you will find a shelter with picnic tables and BBQs, a walking track and toilets. Enjoy a light meal and the spectacular views from the nearby Glasshouse Mountains Lookout Cafe.
No visit to the area is complete without a visit to the Glasshouse Mountains Visitor and Interpetive Centre where you can learn so much about the surrounding area. As with most Information Centres, the volunteers are always keen to share their extensive knowledge of the region with you.
The Pumicestone Passage area on the edge of Caloundra City is another firm favourite with both locals and visitors alike. Spend a very pleasant day enjoying the almost river-like waterway. Pack a picnic or have a BBQ at one of the provided electric BBQs along the shoreline. For some exercise why not hire a bike and go on a self-guided tour, or jump in a kayak and venture out on the beautiful blue protected waters.
The Pumicestone Passage, also known as the Pumicestone Channel is the narrow waterway between Bribie Island and the coastal strip of the mainland. This area is thirty five kilometers long and stretches from Caloundra in the north to Deception Bay in the south. This spectacular waterway is a marine park and includes the oldest registered fish habitat in Queensland. The area is also recognised as one of the most important bird habitats in Queensland. This waterway which is also home to dugongs, is protected by its inclusion in three international environmental treaties.The Caloundra end of this special waterway is a sheltered recreational area popular for fishing, swimming and boating. A real playground.
If you're travelling with kids or feel like some good, old fashioned fun, head to Aussie World or The Big Kart Track. The Australia Zoo and Queensland Air Museum are also in the area, so you can continue to discover what makes this country great.
