Stunning coast views and quiet valleys
THE elevated, yet affordable suburb of Aroona is named after the aboriginal word meaning ‘place of running waters’.
Nestled between Caloundra and Little Mountain, Aroona is located within the Caloundra urban centre.
Situated between the highway and the beach on Caloundra’s northern edge, the area has transitioned from a mere two houses per street in the 1970s, to a vital cross-section of housing styles covering the whole spectrum.
With the privilege of being elevated, Aroona offers a ridgeline of stunning coastal views from Mooloolaba to the north and Caloundra to the south-east, and is home to quiet valleys that form the baseline of the community.
Real estate in this suburb varies from the middle-of-the-range homes dating back to the late 1970s, to the modern residences that are fast becoming a key ingredient to the Coast’s growth.
Ideal for the new home owner or investor, the designs beam with potential as there is the option to add or extend, or even put in a pool for cool relief on those summer days.
This suburb is popular with first home buyers as well as long-term residents and appeals to a range of different demographics.
Aroona’s Central Park offers a haven for recreation. There is a basketball half court and space for park cricket as well as a children’s playground. The natural surrounds make it ideal for family picnics and parties or simply to sit in the shade and reflect on life.
You will also find the natural bushland of Ben Bennett Park with its walking and mountain bike trails.
The path is easily followed as it guides visitors through the vegetation of melaleuca and eucalypt forests.
It’s such a lovely place to relax and experience one of the few areas of coastal lowland vine forest. With free entry from sunrise to sunset, this is a family friendly park worth a visit, especially on a quiet Sunday afternoon.
Encompassing 1.9sq km of the Sunshine Coast, Aroona is located in the ideal situation where you can have it all, without the busy traffic and crowds.
Located west of Nicklin Way, Aroona offers easy access to Dicky Beach’s surf, sand and shops.
With easy access to the Bruce Highway, this central location is one not to miss.
There is a local neighbourhood shopping centre and major service station yet it is also favoured for its close proximity to Caloundra CBD and sports facilities, including Caloundra Golf Club and the Arthur St sports grounds, aquatic centre and YMCA. Aroona is convenient to a variety of schools including Currimundi Primary School, Talara Primary College, Pacific Lutheran College and Caloundra State High School while the Currimundi Marketplace and Parklands Shopping Centre are very handy.
