Holiday Homes in Dicky Beach

Beach side town

Dicky Beach is located in the Sunshine Coast in Queensland, a state in north east Australia. The coastal town is located approximately five km north-east of Caloundra, the southernmost community on the Sunshine Coast and is only one hour north of Brisbane, the capital of Queensland. Its pristine sun drenched sands and varied holiday accommodation calls to visitors to partake of its relaxing beach breaks.

Ahoy! Shipwreck

Dicky Beach has the inaugural honour of being the only recreational beach in the world that has been named after a shipwreck (the S.S. Dicky). In February 1893, the iron steamboat, SS Dicky was swept onto the shore by a cyclone and high seas, carrying 11 passengers and crew along with 40 tonnes of sand. The sand dispersed and all those aboard the ship were all brought safely to the beach. The ship managed to re-float, however, heavy seas turned the ship around and back onto the sand where the iron skeleton of the ship remains to this day.

For some unique holiday snaps, remember to bring along your camera from your holiday home and take some holiday photos with your family posing with the distinctive ship wreck!

Fun activities

The Dicky Beach Surf Life Saving Club has a proud history of over 50 years and regularly patrols the beach that they are named after every day of the year. Dicky Beach is known as a child friendly and safe swimming beach and stretches north toward Point Cartwright and south to Moffat Beach. The beach is also popular with experienced surfers.

Tooway Lake is located in the northern boundary of Dicky Beach and is great for those looking for calm and protected swimming. In addition to the beach and lake, there is a creek that is located close by that enters the ocean, however, it is not suitable for swimming. On the other hand, you can try your hand at fishing while you are there.

For holiday makers who enjoy walking, change from your swimming gear to comfortable clothing at your holiday apartment and walk along the boardwalk that runs from Dicky Beach to Currimundi. The length of the boardwalk is about 2.5kms and beautiful scenery of the beach and ocean can be viewed as you stroll along the boardwalk.

A park located adjacent to Dicky Beach features picnic facilities, a barbeque area and a playground for the smaller children and skate bowl for bigger children. This is perfect for families to relax and enjoy their afternoon there.

Dicky Beach also has a small shopping centre where you can buy groceries should you wish to cook a delicious meal at your self-serviced holiday apartment. Otherwise, for those who just want a holiday with no cooking involved, there are a couple of restaurants for you to dine at.

Beautiful, quiet, central, clean and bright apartment with everything you need!

5 of 5
We had a wonderful mini break with our 18 month old staying at Julie's beautiful apartment. Everything we needed for our stay was included and we really appreciated all the little extras that made our stay comfortable- beach towels, high chair, portacot, coffee machine, beach toys, wifi, Netflix, plus all the extra treats that Julie left for us! We had such a fabulous, relaxing stay. The apartment is superbly situated right across the road from the beach and a playground which was awesome! And there are lots of little cafes and shops within walking distance. The apartment was safe and quiet and Julie had left it impeccably clean for our check in which is always appreciated. The bed was really comfortable, the kitchen was large and modern and there was plenty of room so we never felt cramped. We will definitely be back again in future, it was such great value for money and we couldn't believe our luck getting such beautiful, sunny weather in winter! Thanks so much for everything Julie! We loved it ☺️

Clean and Tidy. As described spacious 4 bedroom 3 bathroom (Main Bath & 2 Ensuites) We had a group of 7 adults, 5 singles and one couple. We fit everyone comfortably even in the bunks. Tina responded quickly to our messages and did everything she could to make sure we were happy. Thank you Tina we would love to stay again!
