One of the most attractive areas in Australia, Caloundra City is within an hour’s drive of Brisbane and is the gateway to the Sunshine Coast. Caloundra City lays claim to 10 of Queensland’s most popular patrolled beaches as well as beautiful rain forests and numerous botanical, environmental and national parks.

According to the Draft Caloundra City Local Growth Management Strategy (LGMS) projections, by 2026 Caloundra City will have an estimated resident population of 162,500. From 2004 to 2026 this will require 34,750 new dwellings.



Membership of our club is strong at 27 and increasing. We reflect a cross-section of the Caloundra community – with representatives from a broad range of businesses and the professions. Our ages range from twenties to eighties and we live between mountains and ocean, rain forest and marine life.

Our commitment to improving the status of local women is challenging in one of the most rapidly growing parts of Australia. We target raising several thousand dollars annually to fund ‘RISE Project‘ for local women who are victims of domestic violence. 

We are planning to raise $90,000 in 90 days to complete the building requirements of our project:
