Early this week, Caloundra Chamber of Commerce CEO Olivia Sainsbury, decided to cancel all Caloundra markets.
“We all need to take our social responsibility and take social distancing seriously. Hence the best thing to do is to cancel all markets for the sake of our community and staff. ” Olivia said.
“We are taking extra precautions to protect against the spread of the Coronavirus. At this stage, our team are all working full time from home”.
As the situation is changing rapidly, Olivia recommends that everyone should stay up to date with the latest information about the spread of COVID-19 as well as what you can do to protect yourself.

The Caloundra Street Fair is a fantastic event held along Bulcock Street, the main street of Caloundra. It is a wonderful community street market that operates every Sunday from 8am to 1pm. Many of the local traders also open to add to the atmosphere. The Fair attracts thousands of visitors as well as locals. It is designed to showcase new and regular stall holders displaying varying homemade products and services, along with fresh food, plants, herbs, flowers, art works and well-being and health products.
It’s a must visit for locals and for people from the surrounding districts. The Fair attracts a great turnout of visitors who relax and soak up the atmosphere, enjoying the food and entertainment from the many local performers. These local performers provide street entertainment and create an atmosphere that is thoroughly enjoyed by all who attend.
There is something for everyone.
During a recent visit to the Caloundra Street Fair, we came across this beautiful bird. The very friendly parrot was out on an excursion from the Maleny Botanic Gardens and Bird World. The bird had his handler with him, who explained that he was one of many birds representing over sixty countries. At the Maleny Botanic Garden, visitors can sit near waterfalls and watch, listen to and photograph the birds who are happy to sit on a waiting arm or head. Visitors can also take part in a guided tour through the aviaries that cover over 1400 square metres.
So come down to Caloundra Street Fair, enjoy the fun, food, coffee and browse the streetscape at your leisure.
Why not call into the Caloundra Street Fair next Sunday?…
