History[edit]

The club started in 1973 and played in the Sunshine Coast and Gympie Districts AFL. After winning back to back premierships in 1987 and 1988 the club transferred to the QAFL for the 1990 season.

The switch was not a success as Morningside kicked a record score against them - Morningside 47.28.310 defeated Caloundra 1.3.9.[3]

After returning to the Sunshine Coast in 1991 it won the premiership, and followed up again in 1992.

In 1993, the league shut down and the Sunshine coast clubs played in the Brisbane AFL. Caloundra lost the 1993 Grand final to Maroochydore by eleven points. In 2000, a major reorganization of football in southern Queensland saw Caloundra placed in division one.

After being runner-up in 2007 and 2008 the club won the 2010 premiership by defeating the Coorparoo Kings 9.16.70 to 7.12.54.[4]
