You’ll find the charming holiday hotspot of Caloundra just over an hour’s drive north of Brisbane. It’s an ideal daytrip destination and we’ve also found a way for you to save a few pennies along the way.
Caloundra is a seaside town with laid-back vibes that will have you feeling instantly relaxed. Whether you crave serenity or activity, this natural playground has it all – free picnic areas; plenty of patrolled beaches; colourful Saturday markets; and it’s paradise for water babies. There are also plenty of culinary adventures, with an exploding bar, dining and café culture.
There’s nothing like a bit of salt air to build up an appetite, and a great way to satisfy it is with a steak, perfectly cooked to your liking on a hot-stone! Stone’s at Dickys’ signature dish is a self-sizzled steak, prepared at your own table – on a hot stone heated to 300 degrees. And here’s the tasty bit where you can save some money…
If you’re a Youi customer, you can save 20% off your bill at Stones (up to $25).

Caloundra Jet Ski offers small, personalised eco-safaris of Pumicestone Passage aboard their clean, green fun machines. Ken Jeffreys has been offering water-based adventures for 5 years – from 30 minute joyrides to half day tours. The most popular is a 90 minute thrill ride called the Glasshouse Twister… and it’s no surprise that it offers up stunning views of the Glasshouse Mountains from the water.
Pumicestone Passage stretches for 35 kilometres – from Caloundra in the north to Deception Bay in the south – and Ken explains the natural and ecological significance of the area along the way. He’s certainly a passionate guide and his high-tech headsets allow guests to interreact from the jet skis.
Ken’s tours cater to all ages from 8 and up. If you’d like to discover this gem of a region for yourself, you’ll find all the details on the Caloundra Jet Ski website. You can also book directly through RedBalloon, it’s a brilliant Christmas gift idea!
