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.

The house is beautifully and thoughtfully maintained, with everything we needed for a great holiday. The beach is stunning and is only a few meters away. We loved going to sleep and waking up to the sound of the waves. Will be coming back for more!

When we arrived we were greeted by the lovely host Kym. A truly lovely lady with a sincere concern for our pleasant stay. Kym offered us plenty of extras including extra sheets, local information and her phone number if there was anything we needed. The house itself has bucket loads of character with a stunning kitchen, bathrooms and outdoor deck area to catch the sea breeze. Plenty of room for extra cars, quite neighbours and gated access to restaurants and cafes behind the home. I can honestly recommend this home for any family wanting a quiet getaway with the most relaxing vibe imaginable! 5 stars +!
