Description

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. It's the only Queensland island connected to the mainland by bridge, allowing easy access.

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 calmer protected beaches, and some of the best fishing to be found. There's also a good range of restaurants and accommodation to 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, and a diverse birdlife and extensive network of mangrove swamps. The Bribie Island Ferryman offers excellent tours of the 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 also easy and inexpensive to hire small boats on Bribie.

For the more adventurous, head over to the eastern side of the island to Woorim Beach. This patrolled surf beach is one of the closest to Brisbane. It's a popular spot for swimmers and board riders. Learn to surf at the surf school, or just enjoy the view from the Surf Club on the foreshore.

Bribie Island is about an hour and 20 minutes' drive from the Brisbane central business district.

Other Information

Further Details:
Conditions for jet skiing, waterskiing, and para-sailing are very good on Bribie Island with designated areas set aside in selected waterways for these activities to respect the ecological sensitivity of the area.
Bushwalking, bike riding and birdwatching are popular island activities for nature lovers. Bike paths run from one side of the island to the other and the Bicentennial Bushwalk Tracks are found on the island. Some 350 species of migratory birds and wading birds can be found on Bribie Island.
The island is a great place to come for four wheel driving, with vast areas of the island not accessible by conventional road vehicles. Many people combine four wheel driving with camping at one of the camping grounds around the island.
Permits are necessary for both camping and four wheel driving on Bribie Island. Contact the Environmental Protection Agency for more information.

Bribie Island is also rich in social and military history. The early explorers passed through the area, and Fort Bribie was established during World War II by army and navy authorities to protect the entrance to Brisbane. World War II gun emplacements are still standing today, dotted throughout the surf side of the island.
It's no surprise that fresh seafood is a staple and favourite on the menus of Bribie Island's restaurants. A fabulous seafood meal coupled with the views out across the Pacific Ocean or inland to the beautiful Glass House Mountains make Bribie Island a lovely spot for celebrating special occasions.
Art lovers can visit the Caboolture Shire Community Arts Centre at Banksia Beach which has regular exhibitions of arts and crafts, and several workshops on premises from which the resident artists and craftsmen create their works.

Must See and Do:
Visit: Woorim Surf Beach for patrolled beach swimming. Pumicstone passage for fishing, kayaking and water sports. White Patch for coastal camping. Bongaree Jetty for the best spot to eat fish and chips. Pacific harbour golf course for world-class golf. Watch the magic of a sunset over the Glasshouse Mountains.
