Bribie Island, QLD

Naturally beautiful, Bribie Island and its surrounding waters is a true showpiece of the Moreton Bay area.

Bribie is the northern-most of the islands in Moreton Bay and is the only island connected to the mainland by bridge, allowing traffic to flow to and from the island easily.

A haven for those seeking a “sea change”, young families, water sport enthusiasts and nature lovers, Bribie offers a compact range of experiences for all age groups. Extensive national parks, (some with camping facilities) a choice of surf beaches or calm protected beaches, some of the best fishing to be found, and a good range of restaurants and accommodation make Bribie an ideal destination for a short break or day trip..

The ecologically important Pumicestone Passage, formed by the channel which runs between Bribie Island and the Caboolture coastline, is a protected marine park and safe haven for dugongs, turtles, dolphins, incredibly diverse birdlife and an extensive network of mangrove swamps. The Bribie Island Ferryman offers excellent tours of the Pumicestone Passage with fascinating commentary along the way.

The picturesque foreshore at Bongaree is an excellent spot for a family outing with lots of picnic facilities, ample shady areas, boat ramps and calm water for kiddies to splash around in. It’s easy and inexpensive to hire small boats on Bribie. This is a great way to explore the Pumicestone Passage and surrounds at leisure.

For the more adventurous, head over to the eastern side of the island to Woorim Beach which is one of the closest patrolled surf beach to Brisbane. This is a popular spot for swimmers and board riders. You can even learn to surf at the surf school located here. Or just enjoy the surf view from the Surf Club on the foreshore.
