Kawana Waters is an unofficial place name on the Sunshine Coast in Queensland, Australia, between Caloundra and Maroochydore along the Coral Sea coast. It was originally the estate development name and has passed into common usage. The official suburbs (listed below) are connected by the Nicklin Way arterial road. It is sometimes incorrectly referred to as Kawana, which is actually a suburb of Rockhampton.

Many shopping and sporting facilities, including Kawana Shoppingworld are located in the Kawana Waters estate area.



Kawana Waters is a narrow urban area bounded roughly by Mooloolah River to the north and northwest, the ocean to the east and Currimundi Lake to the south.

The Kawana Waters urban centre consists of the following suburbs:


The suburbs within the Kawana Waters estate area are served by Sunbus Sunshine Coast, who operate a bus interchange at Kawana Shoppingworld. Bus routes 600–619 connect Kawana Waters with Caloundra, Maroochydore, Buderim, Landsborough and Nambour.[2]

Landsborough and Nambour stations on the Nambour / Gympie North Line offer regular services to Brisbane, operated by QR Citytrain. There are also coach services from Kawana Waters to Brisbane Airport.[3]
