Caloundra’s Dicky Beach was named after the iron steamboat, the SS Dicky which ran aground during heavy seas on 12 February 1893. In 2014, the local Council decided that the deterioration of the wreck had created a hazard for swimmers and removed it from the foreshores.
Some deeply buried parts of the wreck have remained on the beach; other parts will be relocated into the foreshore park with an interpretive display, while other parts will be conserved and stored.
Today Dicky Beach is a fully patrolled beach and is home to the Dicky Beach Surf Life Saving Club. It is very popular for surfing and swimming in the waves, but also has a skatepark and playground in the adjoining park.
It is a great place to entertain the kids with plenty to do while you relax in the endless sunshine. Dicky Beach is around 3Kms from the centre of Caloundra or you can walk there via the coastal walkway.
