Birtinya is a suburb on the Sunshine Coast, between Caloundra and Mooloolaba. It was part of the original Kawana Waters project that began in the early 1960s, and until recently has become a large development containing modern houses, new apartment buildings a newly constructed university hospital, all in an easy walk to the beach. Oceanside is the latest precinct to be released from Stockland.

Birtinya shares a transport corridor with a new road and a bus service. The Home Central Shopping Centre (anchor tenants such as trade secret, spotlight, early settler and other large homewhere retailers) has been opened. The western shoreline of Lake Kawana has several house and apartment estates, including Birtinya Island with lake and canal shorelines. Proximity to public transport, the Kawana Town Centre and the Sunshine Coast University Private hospital are strong selling points and are driving substantial growth in property prices.
