Driving North from Brisbane, Caloundra is the first of the seaside towns you will discover on the Sunshine Coast. With both exposed ocean beaches and it's calm sheltered waterways that are protected by Bribie Island, it offers something for everyone.
Less than one hours drive from the main city centre of Brisbane, it is a popular destination for many of the States's Capital's residents looking for short weekend breaks or romantic getaways.
Behind the coast lies the National Parks of the Glass House Mountains and for those looking to capture a little piece of nature, many bush walks feature lush vegetation, plentiful bird and animal life as well as breath taking waterfalls and other sites.
Caloundra Tourism has a great website to learn more about your visit to the area.
