Fringed by golden sand, Dicky Beach lures you in with its tropical weather, laid-back vibes, a flourishing arts scene and breezy cafes and bistros. Dicky Beach is also popular for the legendary Caloundra Music Festival, one of Queensland's top cultural events.
Things to do
Soaking up the sun is a top priority on Dicky Beach’s grassy foreshore, which has picnic areas, a skate park and playground. Stretch your legs on the scenic Coastal Pathway, which stretches for nine kilometres along the shoreline. Along the way you'll pass hidden beaches, lighthouses and secret surf spots.
The Dicky Beach Surf Club serves up some of the best fish and chips in town and offers sweeping views over the Coral Sea. Nearby Moffat Beach Brewing Company is another local favourite, serving up tasty pub meals and craft beer.
Every Sunday, locals flock to the Caloundra Street Fair, held on Bulcock Street. It features a myriad of market stalls, from local art and handcrafted jewellery to street food and fresh produce.
Located at Caloundra Airport, the Queensland Air Museum is housed in a pair of hangars. Inside you'll find an impressive collection of aircraft, including an iconic F-111 fighter jet owned by the Royal Australian Air Force.
Anchored by a bustling cafe strip, Dicky Beach is easy to navigate on foot. It's a few kilometres from Caloundra, with local buses travelling between the two coastal towns. Sunshine Coast Airport is a 30-minute drive up the coast.
