Things to do in caloundra

Hi, I'm going to caloundra to stay with a friend at the end of august. She will be working some of the time that I am there and so I will be left to entertain myself. How easy is it to get around and what can I get up to there? any trips or must do things. I have never been before. Thanks

Caloundra is a great relaxing place to stay.

Be sure to get up in the hinterland areas of Peachester, Maleny, Montville and Flaxton. Beautiful.

Actually, HappyQ has done a great list of ideas:

It really depends where she lives in Caloundra, it is a beautiful town but reasonably quiet, not a lot to do to entertain yourself unless you like to surf, fish or go to the RSL club... lol

With a car you will be able to get around and enjoy the surrounding areas.

There is a good local bus service which operates around town and also runs up and down the coast .

The shopping here is I think equal to brisbane.

There are are some nice walks around the beaches infact you can walk from currimundi to the end of Pelican Waters.

Which covers Dicky Beach, Moffat Beach, Shelly Beach, Kings Beach ,Bulcock Beach and Golden Beach.

There is a race course (horses) which has a meeting at least every Sunday and some mid week .

If you caught the bus to Noosa you would see lots of the coast and have no trouble filling your day in Hastings Street (main street)and the beach.

Enjoy your stay
