The vibrant coastal village of Cleveland is a warm, friendly, cosmopolitan area brimming with plenty to see and do. There is an elegant marina, great places to eat and excellent public facilities throughout the precinct. Once in Cleveland, that relaxed bayside feel is infectious.
Cleveland is the commercial hub of the Redland Bay region, and the launch point to North Stradbroke Island.
An important port for the Moreton Bay Settlement, Cleveland has many links to its colonial past preserved for visitors to enjoy today. History buffs will be keen to visit sites along Cleveland’s local Heritage Trail throughout the area.
Families will love Cleveland’s beautiful foreshore areas for picnics or barbecues and its many playgrounds to keep children happy! Public art and streetscapes add another dimension making this seaside village a truly lovely place to visit.
Conversation and nature is an important part of Cleveland too, and is a value residents feel strongly about. Take a walk through the Black Swamp Wetlands with its abundant bird and wildlife, and watch thousands of flying foxes fly over the area each night at dusk.
Check out the Cleveland Markets held every Sunday on Bloomfield Street, featuring local arts and crafts. Art lovers should also visit Redland Art Gallery.
Raby Bay Harbourside is a major dining, entertainment and boating hub. Enjoy local seafood and beautiful bay views. Brunch overlooking the Marina is a local favourite at Raby Bay. Here you can also charter a boat to go deep sea fishing or sailing. And for those seeking a rejuvenating retreat, head to the Harbour Day Spa and choose from its extensive menu of luxury treatments.
