Have you decided to spend your two-day vacation at Caloundra? This Sunshine Coast suburb actually deserves a longer stay. But it doesn’t mean a two-day holiday isn’t enough. All you need to do is find an accessible place to stay, such as at Pumicestone Chase, Edgecliff, or Gazeaway. Then, be sure to include the following activities to make the most out of your vacation.


Start your day by taking a coastal walk.

The 25-km of coast from the Golden Beach to Mooloolaba offers a scenic view of the beach. Consider having your coastal walk in the morning to take Instagram-worthy pictures of the pinkish blue sky during sunrise. As you enjoy the seaview in Pumicestone Passage, keep an eye for dolphins and birds. Also, don’t miss to take pictures of the Kings Beach Bathing Pavilion and the historical Military Jetty. You can also stay at the Monterey Lodge Caloundra Unit 10 for an easy access and view of the beach.

Do some adrenaline-rushing water sports around Pumicestone Passage.

Opt to stay at Pumicestone Chase. Here, you’ll live near Bribie Island and Pumicestone Passage and enjoy pristine waters to swim in. Right after you take a coastal walk, you can proceed to having some aquatic escapades. Rent a jet ski. Rent a boat to explore the waterways lined with mangrove that leads to a marine park green zone. Bring along a water-proof camera with you to take pictures of dolphins, turtles, and over 350 bird species in the area. Take a look at Accom Caloundra

Enjoy a delectable dinner at Bulcock Beach.

Head to Bulcock Beach to wrap up the first day of your vacation. Try the fish and chips at Sandbar Café and Kiosk. You can also find salads and designer burgers to satisfy your palate. Then, grab cupcakes for midnight snacks at Stormie D’s Cupcakery. The best thing about Bulcock Beach is the availability of transportation options to anywhere in Sunshine Coast. After dinner, you can easily get a ride to your accommodation in Caloundra QLD.


Climb or trek.

It would be great to head to the mountains for the second day of your vacation. Aside from the stunning beaches near Pumicestone Chase, the Sunshine Coast also has picturesque mountain views to boast. Specifically, visit the Glass House Mountains National Park where you can choose to go on a 45-minute or 3-hour hiking trail. Toilets and picnic tables are also available at the park. Or if you’re a harcore outdoor junkie, you can try climbing the mountains’ rocky outcrops.

Spend a couple of hours on museum and zoo hopping.

Don’t miss to get to know the culture and heritage of Caloundra while you’re here. If you’ve spent the morning of your second day doing intensive outdoor adventures up the Glass House Mountain, spend the afternoon doing more relaxed activities, such as visiting museums and zoos. Go on a city tour to see the heritage lighthouses, the Queensland Air Museum, Aussie World, Underwater World, and the Australia Zoo.

With these activities, your two-day stay here at Caloundra will surely be a blast. If you’re now in search of a suitable holiday letting Caloundra has to offer, you can browse great picks at Accom Caloundra. For more details, visit at:
