Dicky Beach

Why Become a Local?

Dicky Beach is a charming seaside place that got its name from the S.S. Dicky that was forced aground in 1893 during heavy seas. Residents and visitors are attracted to its beautiful beach with its long stretch of clean white sand, just north of Caloundra. Dicky Beach has come into its own with new housing estates and no high rise buildings, allowing it to have that quieter feel creating a permanent holiday vibe, where residents are able to stroll along the beach, dine at local cafes or relax at the surf club.

Local Style

In keeping with the quiet coastal feel of Dicky Beach, the variety of residential properties includes cosy weatherboard beach homes, upscale modern builds and vacation style apartments. Land sizes average around 600msq and because of its exclusive location on the Sunshine Coast, most properties are tightly held for the long term.

Local Dining, Shopping & Recreation

Café’s are scattered at the central point of Dicky Beach, with more eateries within walking distance at Currimundi and Moffat Beach. Larger restaurants are nearby on Bulcock Street in Caloundra and popular restaurants along the esplanade in Mooloolaba. Residents can enjoy the close proximity of Currimundi Market Place and Stockland Shopping Centre for basic retail requirements with Bulcock Street showcasing an eclectic mix of fashion stores. An extensive walkway links Caloundra’s beachside suburbs, with sporting facilities and parks in nearby suburbs. The wreck of the SS Dicky lays ashore along Dicky Beach, the skeleton now a fun point to explore while enjoying the beautiful Sunshine Coast weather.
