Description

Margate, near Redcliffe, is a coastal strip which features one of the Moreton Bay area's longest mainland stretches of sand beach.

It also boasts a long, flat boardwalk promenade, making it ideal for those who like to walk, cycle, rollerblade or even scooter. There's always a lively and active atmosphere just metres from the waters of Moreton Bay.

Seating and shelters, with barbecues and other picnic amenities are located at regular intervals along the esplanade for visitors. There's a popular swimming spot with clean white sand and sheltered waters - making it a favorite dipping spot for families with young children.

When the wind is up, Scotts Point at the southern end of Margate is perfect for windsurfing. This is one of the few locations close to Brisbane which is not majorly affected by tides.

The quaint swimming pavilion at Scotts Point is an historical reference to a bygone era. There are many Norfolk Pine trees lining the esplanade which were planted by the first settlers in the area, more than 150 years ago.

With eateries and seaside stores conveniently located along the esplanade or nearby Oxley Avenue, Margate is well worth a visit. It's about 50 minutes' drive from the centre of Brisbane.
