Located directly south-west of the Caloundra CBD, Golden Beach is a tranquil haven lining the shores of the pristine Pumicestone Passage.
Settlement of the area dates from the late 19th century with land used primarily for farming and grazing. It began growing in popularity as a tourism and fishing destination in the 1950s, with rapid growth occurring from the 1960s into the 1980s.
Today Golden Beach is in high demand for its family-friendly atmosphere, housing affordability and accessibility to beaches and shops. However the biggest attraction remains its stunning natural beauty, with the protected passage providing the perfect venue for sailing, swimming and whetting a line.
