A unique development with access to the Sunshine Coast


Located close to Brisbane, it takes approximately 40 minutes to reach the gateway turnoff and only an hour to the international and domestic airports and city centre. It is also only 30 minutes to the Sunshine Coast Airport.

With its proximity to the open waters of Pumicestone Passage and the Caloundra CBD, Pelican Waters is fortunate to be one of the most strategically located master planned communities on the Sunshine Coast.

Caloundra city centre is within 5 minutes drive and offers a leisurely stroll throughout the many shops located along the main street and Bulcock Beach boardwalks.

It takes only 5 minutes to the Nicklin Way, which provides easy access to other areas of the Sunshine Coast such as the Sunshine Coast University Hospital in Kawana, Maroochydore, Mooloolaba and Noosa.

Bribie Island and Moreton Island are both close by and the Glasshouse Mountains are within 30 minutes’ drive.
