Caloundra – a lifestyle and business destination
Whether you have lived here all your life, are moving here for the first time or are just visiting, I welcome you to beautiful Caloundra.
Our State Electorate appeals to those wanting a tree or a sea change, boasting the best of both worlds – magnificent beaches, Pumicestone Passage, as well as the picturesque areas of Beerwah, Landsborough, Mooloolah and Glenview.
Along the shores of the Pumicestone Passage sits the town of Caloundra central which is both a lifestyle and business destination. Tourism is a given as Caloundra is blessed to be flanked by some of the region’s best beaches: Shelly, Moffat, Dicky, Kings, Currimundi, Bulcock and Golden Beach. Caloundra is home to many thriving small businesses, an aerodrome, an air museum and a burgeoning industrial park, which is balanced by Caloundra’s rich art and culture scene and the large number of non-for-profit organisations which are well supported by the local community. To Caloundra’s South the new development of Aura continues to grow, attracting more families and first-time residents in search of Coastal life.
Travelling West from Caloundra across the Bruce Highway, you will find a number of charming townships nestled into the foothills of the Glass House Mountains. Beerwah, Landsborough and parts of Mooloolah and Glenview make up Caloundra’s Hinterland with each boasting their own unique identity. While some travellers coming to our region have an unfair and unfounded perception that the Hinterland is not destinations for culture or nightlife – locals know this is simply untrue. Don’t miss out on the rich experiences of food, music, art and culture that is thriving in our picturesque Hinterland.
The Sunshine Coast has one of the largest regional economies in Australia, but we started with humble beginnings as a cattle and timber economy, then in the late 1800s growing into a small-farming and agricultural economy which is still strong in many of Caloundra’s hinterland towns. It’s no surprise given our coastal position and sub-tropical climate which is ideal for a wide range of agriculture and food products. Agriculture will continue and has a strong future and continuing place in our regional identity.
Come to Caloundra to stay – It is a great place to live, work and raise a family.
