Reasons to Explore Downtown Caloundra this Summer

The Sunshine Coast Region of Australia is ideal for the summer months as it offers visitors a break from the relentless heat of the cities while not being too far away. Caloundra is one of the main attractions of the region, being as it is on the coast (with seven gorgeous beaches) and just over an hour’s drive from Brisbane.

Christmas may be over now, but that doesn’t mean that the fun stops. January is as action-packed a month as any other, so of you’re thinking of coming to visit us, then this is just a taste of what’s in store for you.
