What to see and do in Caloundra

Caloundra’s oldest building is the 1896 lighthouse that still stands to this day. It’s on display alongside the 1968 signal station on Canberra Terrace behind Kings Beach.  

Both lighthouses are a great way to learn about Caloundra’s past and both lighthouses are open for tours operated by the Friends of the Caloundra Lighthouses Association. Visitors are encouraged to book ahead to secure a spot. 

Nearby, two Caloundra locals, Steve and Kirra Grace, have created Caloundra’s first distillery. It’s called Beachtree Distilling Co and they produce two gins and vodka and they’ve got big plans for more. Visitors are invited to pop in, enjoy a grazing platter and tasting and pick up some spirits to take home.

For those wanting to enjoy a night or two in Caloundra, a great option is Rumba Beach Resort at Bulcock Beach. And for Weekender viewers, they’re offering a special deal.
