You can't get the train all the way. You have to get off at Landsborough and then take a bus to Caloundra. The bus sits outside the small station and don't wait long, so don't waste any time, just exit the station. They are normal public buses and don't have racks for lots of luggage. You'll need to change trains at Central station to as the airport train won't go all the way.
All the information you need is on the trans link journey planner. Get a GO card to pay for your transport.Edited: 06 October 2017, 11:37
It's not the easiest place to get to via public transport ... considered a shuttle?
Even if you take the train/bus option, the bus stops at the bus station in the centre of Caloundra (which was luckily close to AM's accom when she stayed earlier in the year) but Rolling Surf is about a 10-15 minute walk from the bus station, although you could take a cab for that bit.
Rolling Surf is a great location - enjoy!

Thank you for the replies and info
If you are looking to change trains it's probably quicker to change at EAGLE JUNCTION rather than going all the way to Central (which basically wastes about 40 minutes going both ways).

Good point from mhjeffrey - and they will announce on the train to change at Eagle Junction for the Landsborough line.
