2023 Queensland’s Top Tourism Town

We are thrilled to see our beautiful coastal town being named the 2023 Queensland Top Tourism Town. This is a huge achievement for our community, and it reflects the hard work and dedication of everyone who calls Caloundra home.

Caloundra is a hidden gem on the Sunshine Coast, and it has always been a popular holiday destination for locals and visitors alike. Our town’s stunning beaches, beautiful coastline, and picturesque parks make it an ideal place for visitors to unwind and relax. The warm welcome and excellent customer service provided by our locals make it a memorable experience for anyone who visits.

The award is a testament to the hard work and dedication of our Caloundra community in delivering an outstanding visitor experience. Locals take pride in showcasing the beauty of their town to visitors, and they work together to deliver an exceptional experience. The award will undoubtedly attract more visitors to town, which will help boost the local economy, supporting small businesses and setting up future generations to have life options.

One of our event highlights in Caloundra is the annual Caloundra Music Festival, which was recently named Festival of the Year at the Qld Music Awards. The festival is a celebration of music, art, and culture, and it attracts visitors from all over Australia. The festival is just one of the many events that make Caloundra shine for visitors and locals alike.

Caloundra is also known for its commitment to sustainability and preserving the natural environment. Our town has a strong focus on eco-tourism, with many local businesses implementing sustainable practices to minimise their impact on the environment. This commitment to sustainability is something that the locals are proud of and something that visitors can appreciate.
