Description

With its sprawling expanse of bayside walkways and bikeways, plentiful parks and picnic facilities and designated off-leash areas, Clontarf is an ideal place to bring the family, including the dog, to enjoy a day out by the water.

Clontarf is a charming seaside area at the southernmost part of the Redcliffe Peninsula. A walk or cycle across the old Hornibrook Highway bridge, which is closed to traffic, at either sunrise or sunset is a must.

Clontarf is renowned for its many pelicans that reside in the area and can be seen perched on the light poles along the bridge. Pelican Park is named in honour of these coastal creatures and at around 10.00am each morning local volunteers feed the pelicans and provide an educational insight into these amazing sea birds.

The area is also home to a large Visitor Information Centre, children's playground area complete with a dedicated swing for people with a disability, and popular boat ramp.

Clontarf is also well known for kite flying, with conditions on the esplanade so favourable that an annual kite festival 'Kitefest' is hosted here in May attracting participants from across Australia.
