Dicky Beach is to my knowledge the only beach named after ship; the SS Dicky, a 226 ton steam ship that ran aground during heavy seas in February 1893. She was re-floated, but heavy seas turned the ship about and back onto the sand where...More

Great beach to visit. Clean and lovely area. You can also watch the ships go by really close as they head out of Brisbane. A great walkway that is quite wide and suitable for those with mobility issues. Also quite a few seats along the...More

It was good to see a beach that caters to dog owners. I do not think I ever saw so many happy dogs in my life. Very long with ample space for a lot of dogs and owners.

This patrolled beach is beautiful and relaxing. It's not crowded like Kings beach and mostly visited by locals and families. There are two electric bbqs and covered benches close to the beach. It also has a couple of open showers.

Caloundra is spoilt for good beaches - this rates down my list - small parking area between a caravan park and the beach which is a short walk away - great for walking the dog but just did not appeal to me

This is a great little beach in a part of Australia that has many good beaches. It’s close to shops and cafes and is perfect for a day in the sun.

This is not the biggest beach around. Just north of Dicky Beach, you can find another beach that is much longer. That being said, they pretty much share the same ocean, so your experiences will probably be the same at both. If you are already...More
