First Avenue Bed and Breakfast, Brisbane City

A warm welcome awaits you at First avenue Bed and Breakfast, located in Sandgate, an historic waterfront northern suburb in Brisbane, Queensland, Australia.

It’s your choice, stroll from First Avenue B and B along the waterfront, visit local restaurants and coffee shops overlooking the bay, cycle along the waterfront path and admire views of the bay and adjoining Queenslander homes, relax in the nearby public pool beside the bay, cook a barbecue in one of the many picnic areas along the foreshore, watch children fishing and crabbing from the pier, or toss over a line to try your luck.

Admire stunning sunrises and sunsets over Bramble Bay, walk bare feet in the sand and collect shells on the low tide, enjoy the tranquility of the picturesque gazebo in Dowse Lagoon, a short walk from the B and B past the local shopping centre with hairdressers, convenience stores and post office.

Relax and enjoy a book down by the bay, or a complimentary cup of tea in your unit or on the upstairs sheltered verandahs at First Avenue Bed and Breakfast.

Only a short walk from First Avenue Bed and Breakfast is Sandgate railway station. Take a 35 minute train ride to Brisbane City if you wish to be tempted by the capital’s city stores, or enjoy one of the world class live shows at nearby Boondall Entertainment Centre.

The popular Sunshine Coast is only a one hour drive north of Sandgate. Visit Noosa, the Glasshouse Mountains, quaint Montville in the hinterland and return to your comfortable base at First Avenue Bed and Breakfast.

Or if boating is your scene, a well appointed marina and yacht club are only a short drive away.

Where Are Australia's Best Beaches?

Australia's Best Beaches

Australia has miles and miles of shoreline but which beaches are really great? Ultimately it depends on what you're looking for in a beach. Pristine wilderness without a single footprint in sight, the sparkle of cosmopolitan high rise on the waters edge, the adrenalin pumping roar of a powerful surf beach, or quite simply the perfect white squeaky sand that squelches between your toes.
