Where to Get Romantic This Valentine’s Day

Why not get romantic this Valentine’s Day and treat your loved one with a Caloundra getaway for two? Caloundra and surrounding region is packed with plenty of things to do that fall under the romantic category. Here’s some ideas:

A Romantic Caloundra Sunset Cruise

See Caloundra’s pristine waterways – take in a sunset, and marvel at the bright lights of the city, with that special someone on a Caloundra Sunset Cruise.

Sit back with your loved one and your favourite drink and reflect in the glow of a Glasshouse Mountain Sunset. Relax on cushioned seating downstairs or take in a 360 degree view upstairs while life on the waterway passes you by. BYO drinks and nibbles. Prices start from $25 per person. Cruise depart Friday and Saturday evenings only.

For more information and bookings visit Caloundra Cruises.

A Champagne Sunset Helicopter Flight

Watch the sunset behind the Sunshine Coast Hinterland with your special someone during a romantic evening soaring through the sky in your own private helicopter. Select from two Sunshine Coast destinations, including a 30-minute flight from Caloundra past Mooloolaba, Coolum Beach, and Nambour; or from Caloundra to Bribie Island and over the Pumicestone Passage. Both flights offer totally unique views with incredible vantage points to experience the incredible hinterlands across the region bathing in the glow of the setting sun.

Prices start from $590 per couple. For more information and bookings visit Oceanview Helicopters

Take a Drive into the Sunshine Coast Hinterland

The beautiful Sunshine Coast Hinterland and the charming towns of Maleny and Montville are a comfortable driving distance from Caloundra. With an average elevation of 450m, the cooler temperatures in the hinterland offer a cool change from the coast.

Maleny, Montville and surrounding areas, are mainly lush green farmlands and are rich with skilled artisans. The arts and crafts in both villages are an art lover’s delight.

Both Maleny and Montville have an abundance of fine dining options with restaurants and cafes available, both in the towns and on its outskirts. Or stop by for some wine tasting at Flame Hill Vineyard in Maleny.

Its location on the range overlooking the Sunshine Coast, makes it a popular place to stop and take photos or have a romantic picnic lunch.

Get into Caloundra’s Bar & Live Music Scene

There are a selection of great bars offering craft beers, fine wines and live music entertainment across Caloundra that are perfect for a date night. These include:

Moffat Beach Brewing Co.
6 boutique beers and original, local musicians. Live every Friday and Saturday night at 5pm and at the 3.30pm Sunday Sessions. Located at 12 Seaview Terrace, Moffat Beach.

Take a Stroll Along Caloundra Coastal Pathway

Take a stroll or hire two bikes and cruise along the foreshore on the Caloundra Coastal Pathway that runs along the spectacular Caloundra coastline.

Spanning 25 kilometres, the stretch of coast runs as a continuous path from Golden Beach in the south, where it hugs Pumicestone Passage, then passes Bulcock Beach and Kings Beach making its way round Caloundra Headland going north along the sandy beaches of Kawana to Mooloolaba.

There are plenty of spots along the way to enjoy a picnic lunch or stop by at one of the numerous cafes and coffee shops situated not far off the pathway where you can relax and take in some refreshments.
