We hired a double kayak for $20 for one hour. This was great value compared to places we have seen in other areas. We found the one hour hire was enough as beginners but we could have extended for $15/hr thereafter. This area is perfect for kayaking especially during low tide to allow you to explore the sandbanks. We kayaked for a while and beached the kayak on a huge sandbank to explore by foot. Awesome fun!

Kings Beach

Reviewed By car0line2811 - Caloundra, Australia

Kings Beach has it all! Safe, lifeguard patrolled beach for swimmers and surfers, broad areas of sand which are brilliant for walkers, rock wall, lovely cafes right near the water..... On the day we visited, dozens of kite surfers brightened up the sky with their colourful canopies dancing above the waves. Just magical!

Caloundra Lighthouses

Reviewed By DACCLES - Toowoomba, Australia

I walk to and from this lighthouse every afternoon. Magical view across the ocean. This is often enhanced by a marvellous vista of cargo ships passing by. If you are lucky, you may even have the benefit of spotting a cruise liner, as has been my fortune this fortnight on more than one occasion.

Currimundi Lake

Reviewed By DACCLES - Toowoomba, Australia

I did a long walk from my holiday unit at the Esplanade on Kings Beach to Lake Currimundi on a friend's recommendation. I was not disappointed. I bought food from a local cafe on the beach, then enjoyed a picnic lunch, a swim on the relatively placid and calm beach and enjoyed some time in the late autumn Sunshine. It was a most enjoyable way to spend an afternoon. Highly recommended!

Bulcock Beach

Reviewed By Helen D - Redland Bay, Queensland, Australia

What a great beach, patrolled. Great for families with small children, no big waves, lovely grassed areas and under cover table and seats. And a great shower area to wash away the sand

Bill's Boat Hire and Bike Hire

Experience and Explore the Pumicestone Passage and the Nth tip of Bribie Island - only accessable via powered/non-powered vessels and we have Pontoon Boats, 1/2 cabin boat and tinnies, Bikes (2 wheel and 4 wheel), Kayaks and Stand Up Paddle Board Hire.

Reviewed By G2305QQchris - Dartmouth, United Kingdom

This was by far the best day of our holiday thanks to Bills Boat hire. Very friendly staff and great trip on 10 seat pontoon boat. Boat worked great and provided a great platform for our day and exploration round the area. By far a better place to explore with a better boat than in Noosa and that was still a great experience. We booked to go again but due to a rainy afternoon had to cancel for a more indoor orientated activity. Again the staff couldn’t have been more accommodating of our change in plans. If you visit Coloundra you have to make a trip to Bills Boat and bike hire!!!

Blue Water Kayak Tours

Reviewed By Kaput - Melbourne, Australia

We kayaked with a family of 4 (two teenagers). The kayaks were easy to manoeuvre and our hosts let us set the pace and were friendly and knowledgable. We saw a prolific amount of bird life, a beautiful coastal carpet python and the wake of a large stingray. Great exercise and interesting adventure. The only sad thing is that urbanisation is encroaching on kayaking territory (take heed Caloundra council). I preferred this to jet skiing as it was quiet, and peaceful which allows you to get up close, but if you have time, do both.
