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.

During winter, the temperature is usually 20 – 25 celsius during the day and a little cooler during the evening. The months from July to November are the best months to holiday at Dicky Beach.

Getting there from the UK

Dicky Beach is easily reached from the UK by flying into Sunshine Coast Airport at Maroochydore and then it is a 30 minute drive to the coastal town. Alternatively, you can also fly into Brisbane International Airport and take an airport transfer that takes approximately to Dicky Beach.

Beautiful and refreshing

5 of 5
We stayed in this beautiful unit this Christmas period and also on four of the past five years. The aspect and views are second to none and its décor is very tastefully done. The unit has a very beautiful feel to it and the white French shuttering in the bedroom and the overhead fans throughout give a beautiful sense of tasteful and timeless charm. On Boxing Day this year the fridge packed in but to her immense credit the owner organised and had a brand new fridge ordered and fitted within 12 hours..! Have booked the unit for next year as well ..!!

Beautiful Family Home

5 of 5
Situated in a lovely quite street, just mere metres from the Lake, we were left wanting for nothing. Linen, bath towels are provided which is a major plus for those who have a long drive as there is no need to make beds upon arrival. There are many small little touches that make this house ideal for families. A very thoughtful touch was the fruit platter which the kids enjoyed at the beach. Carol was a very gracious host and kept in touch to ensure our small holiday was an enjoyable one. Jan 2018
