Suburb Profile

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 real estate Golden Beach is in high demand for its family-friendly atmosphere, comparative 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 in tranquil waters and whetting a line.

It is fair to say the once sleepy southern reaches of Caloundra on the Sunshine Coast have come alive in recent years and the good news is that with the inevitable progress, none of the laidback charm has been lost.

The Golden Beach Qld market shines bright as one of Caloundra’s emerging destinations for liveability and recreation, combining stunning natural attractions and excellent infrastructure.

A popular coastal pathway winds along the Esplanade foreshore passing shady barbecue areas, playgrounds, numerous swimming and fishing spots and boat launch facilities.

The town is also home to historical landmarks including Military Jetty. These days the picturesque pier is a peaceful place to fish, swim and take in the stunning scenery however it was a different situation in wartime when the waters of Pumicestone Passage were busy with the transportation of troops, goods and important military equipment from the jetty to fortifications on Bribie Island.

The Sunshine Coast Council’s Heritage Library officers have documented the interesting history of Golden Beach. 

For example, Golden Beach was named after the golden wattles which once flourished in the area. It was also a hub of aquatic industry where lime burners processed oyster shells and a fish cannery operated.

One of the first landholders at Golden Beach and the now Pelican Waters was Australian explorer William Landsborough who took up 960 hectares of land upon his retirement.

The Henzell family still has the original 1881 documents of the “Deed of Grant for Conditional Purchase” for land bestowed on Landsborough for his exploration efforts. Roy Henzell Senior began developing residential subdivisions in Golden Beach around 1960.

Today, family-friendly Golden Beach Qld has transformed into a sophisticated living environment while still retaining the sense of privacy and old school charm that property owners and visitors love.
