Profile

Growing in popularity, Caloundra is an ideally located beach community offering great value for money in the accommodation stakes compared with its more pricey local neighbours such as Noosa Heads and Mooloolaba. A quick drive around Caloundra will reveal a community in the midst of change. Where previously Caloundra was considered somewhat of a refuge for older residents, it has become popular with younger buyers looking to take advantage of its excellent facilities and location.

The seachange phenomenon has also had a big impact on the area with 'cashed-up' buyers moving from their traditional city homes, and setting themselves up for semi, or permanent retirement in a coastal village environment. Anecdotal reports from local agents suggest a variety of factors contributed to Caloundra's surge in popularity in the early 2000s - namely location and affordability. Caloundra's relative affordability is amazing considering it is located on the coast just over one hour's drive from the Brisbane CBD. For this reason buyers and industry professionals alike believe Caloundra represents excellent value for money and a solid investment for the future.
