sunshine coast playground

If you dream of a holiday that recaptures your childhood, in a place that allows you time and space with your loved ones, the Caloundra region makes it all possible. With so much to do, the ‘Playground of the Sunshine Coast’ is a fitting name for this region, but be careful — you may find yourself doing very little. You could easily spend days on end simply enjoying the sunshine, entranced by the dramatic outlines of the Glass House Mountains silhouetted along the hinterland horizon.

The time-delayed fountain at Kings Beach will have the kids giggling for hours, as it catches them unawares, and they’ll happily spend days running between the beach, the fountain and the fully fenced saltwater pool, which overlooks the beach.

Look for hermit crabs along Dicky Beach’s rock hopping shoreline, race the kids on bikes along the hand-railed boardwalk hugging the shoreline from Bulcock Beach to Kings Beach. Experienced surfers in the family will want to make a beeline for Moffat Beach, renowned for it’s awesome surf break.

When you’ve had your fill of the beach, take a riverboat cruise down the calm straits of Pumicestone Passage or play a few rounds of golf at the Greg Norman designed Pelican Waters Golf Club. Pick a winner at the Sunshine Coast Turf Club, or browse the bustling Bulcock Street Sunday markets.
