If you’re craving a seaside escape, less than an hour’s drive north of Brisbane will take you directly to paradise. Together Caloundra and the neighbouring town of Kawana form the Southern Gateway to the Sunshine Coast, and while they are known for their breathtaking coastal location, there’s plenty more to these regions than first meets the eye.
