Club Survey Aug 2021 – A snapshot in time of how we felt


The Outrigger Caloundra Canoe Club invited a club member, Paul, to conduct a survey.  The survey was intended to give members (perhaps past, present and future) an opportunity to share their thoughts about a range of issues from crossing the bar to social events. The survey was not compulsory.  34 responses were received between 19 August and 30 August, 2021.  It is unknown how many of these respondents were existing club members and how many were from past or potential future members.  Please keep this in mind as you read the results.  The data represents how people felt at the time they replied to the survey and is therefore a snapshot of a point in time.

Results can be found here OCCC 2021 Survey

The survey was anonymous, however, people were given the opportunity to provide comments and add their name.  While these comments will not be shared publicly on this website, they will be discussed in an open forum, in person, under the tree next to our club house.  This open forum will take place on Saturday 11 September after training for current club members.  We hope members aren’t shy in coming forward.  We are looking forward to an open and respectful discussion to move the club onwards and upwards.  As Uncle Bruce said at our post-training huddle on 28 August, let’s talk story under the tree like generations of paddlers have done so before us.  This is how we reconcile our differences and come together as one.

February 2021 Come & Try Program


Outrigger Caloundra is welcoming new members in 2021.  Please see our “Join Us” page for further information about our February 2021 Come and Try Program.  The next programs will run in May and August 2021.  The cost is $50 for three sessions and we’ll ask you to complete a registration form to sign up.

Thank you Sunshine Coast Council for supporting us!

Outrigger Caloundra has added a V3 from Are Tahiti to our fleet.  We were able to secure funding through the Sunshine Coast Council’s grant program to purchase a three-person canoe.  This canoe will give us more flexibility to accommodate everyone at training.  It will also be a great training canoe for upskilling our steerers!


Our Community Clubhouse

Outrigger Caloundra’s clubhouse has been a community facility since the 1960s.  Over the years the club has been home to the Caloundra All Boats Sailing Club, the Malibu Club and Caloundra State High School for marine studies.

Outrigger Caloundra have called the clubhouse at Leach Park, Golden Beach home since 2000.  We are a not-for-profit club managed by volunteers.  Our members maintain the surrounding grounds where our canoes are stored and we have made custom-built racks inside the club for both club owned and privately owned small water crafts for members.

We feel very privileged to be based on Pumicestone Passage with access to a boat ramp and car parking.  The ocean is at our doorstep and the passage is our playground when we can’t cross the bar.

At Ourigger Caloundra we understand that with privilege comes responsibility.  We understand that as individuals we do not “own” the facility; rather we are managing it and maintaining it the best we can for the collective use of our members and the community.  For example, Outrigger Caloundra opened its doors free of charge for a local band called the “Flying Pigs” to perform in December 2019.  All money raised went to the Sunshine Coast Integrated Family and Youth Service.  We have also offered to run a free 6 week program for kids in care within the Moreton region and we now offer a weekly session for kids aged from 8 to 12 every Saturday morning.

Outrigger Caloundra also acknowledges that the traditional custodians of the area have cared for the land and waters we use today for thousands of years.  It is our hope that we can build relationships with the traditional custodians and discuss ways we can learn more about Gubbi Gubbi culture and heritage.
