“Place of Beech Trees”

From the local Kabi language “Kal/owen” meaning beech tree and “dha” to denote place. The genetic name is Gmelina Leichhardtii many of which still remain throughtpot the estate. Local white settlers have adapted the native term “Kal/owen/dha” for this area which has settled phonetically on the currently pronounced “Caloundra”.
