Claim This Caloundra West Park As Your Own
If you're looking for a park long forgotten by the general public and even the local council, you've come to the right place. The Rotary Park Duck Holes Creek seems to have fallen off the radar for many but this can also work to your advantage.

The Caloundra West Park is an ideal place for a picnic. You'll find plenty of spots to set up for the day. Bring a picnic blanket and sit under the shade of one of the many trees or take up residence on a picnic table by the lake. They even have a couple of electric barbecues here so bring a couple of snags and fry up a barbecue. It's as good as doing it in your own backyard.

There aren't too many wide open areas here with all the trees, so kicking a ball around could prove difficult. You will find however a small playground; it's nothing too special but it'll do. It hasn't got a shade sail but with plenty of tall trees around you should have plenty of protection.

There is a public toilet at the park but it has been closed. Alternative public amenities are available adjacent to the Caloundra Visitor Information Centre. That's just opposite the park but crossing Caloundra Road can be a bit of a hassle - especially if you've got young children in tow.
