Dicky Beach is an unspoiled stretch of sun-drenched white sand, on Queensland’s magnificent Sunshine Coast.

The north-east facing beach is about two kilometres north of Caloundra and was named after the iron screw Steamship SS Dicky which was washed ashore in 1893 during a cyclone with a crew of 11 and 40 tonnes of sand. Attempts to relaunch it proved unsuccessful so it was used for local dances until someone knocked over a kerosene lamp and it was burnt out.

There’s so much to love about this beach. Between surfing or swimming in the waves and easy hours in the skatepark and at the playground, the kids will have plenty to do while you relax in the endless sunshine.
