Impromptu adventuring, exploring our backyard and then putting pen to paper, hoping to entice you to try one, if not all, of our escapades, is my true reward!

Oh me gosh, how exciting is this! The annual Caloundra Music Festival is back! Get ready to immerse yourself in four days of sun, surf and music at the beautiful Kings Beach in Caloundra over the September/October long weekend.
This not-for-profit, eleventh family friendly community event is a celebration of the environment, cultural achievements and community pride of the Caloundra area and is proudly sponsored by the Sunshine Coast Council. For other major sponsors, please click here.
Kings Beach and its surroundings will throb to the beat of a line-up of entertainment featuring some of the best of the Australian music industry as well as awesome international artists.

The Caloundra Music Festival aims to bring a broad audience of locals and visitors together in celebration, to enjoy world-class music, food, arts and local culture, and to showcase the natural beauty, creative talents and unique character of the Sunshine Coast'.
Here's the A - Z of the 2017 Caloundra Music Festival's Artists. To read more about the exceptional talent on offer or to watch their music videos, please click each relevant link.
Okay, that's the music sorted. Please note that when there are no days/dates mentioned that the organisers have not as yet made those details available.
In addition to all the sensational musical talent, the Caloundra Music Festival sports it's very own Funky Forest, home to the Sun Stage with a heap load of fun and exciting activities for the children. Nestled under the shady trees of Kings Beach Park, kids of all ages can create, play and explore. Daily workshops, sports and games can be viewed in the mini programme, available at the festival gates. There will be:
African Drumming workshops;
Circus workshops (juggling, hula hoops and more);
Art and Craft activités;
Magic Tie Dye;
Most of these activities are free but some of the workshops will incur a small cost to cover the materials.
Such an awesome, jam-packed long weekend of entertainment. Now, all we need is accommodation. The Caloundra Music Festival has that sorted too, with either camping or glamping (my style of camping). The Caloundra State Primary School is providing camping facilities during the Caloundra Music Festival on the lower school grounds. The four-hectare site is flat, open and elevated with some shady sites, providing families with affordable accommodation options. For important information on Camping prices please click here. Please read the Camping Conditions of Entry here.To book your camping, please click here.
Perhaps, you're like me and would prefer the glamping option. The Caloundra Music Festival has the 'fussier' than usual campers sorted too, with luxury Glamping Bell Tent accommodation in a private area also located at the Caloundra State Primary School.
