Dicky Beach is a suburb in Caloundra, on the Sunshine Coast in Queensland, Australia. Of the same name is Dicky Beach, which is one of the Caloundra beaches.

The suburb & beach was named after the ship, the SS Dicky, which ran aground during heavy seas on 4 February 1893. It was re-floated, but again, heavy seas turned the ship about and back onto the sand where it remains to this day.
