Dicky Beach is an unspoiled stretch of sun-drenched white sand, on Queensland's magnificent Sunshine Coast. The north-east facing beach is about two kilometres north of Caloundra and was named after the iron screw Steamship SS Dicky which was washed ashore in 1893 during a cyclone with a crew of 11 and 40 tonnes of sand. Attempts to relaunch it proved unsuccessful so it was used for local dances until someone knocked over a kerosene lamp and it was burnt out.

SS Dicky is a photographic delight! The skeleton rests on a 800 metre long pristine beach stretch extending from low rocks at the northern end to a bluff and rock platform at the southern end.
