Southern Moreton Bay Tourist Drive Full Itinerary

Wynnum to Redlands

The sister suburbs of Wynnum and Manly have their own distinctive personalities. Wynnum Central is a commercial and very family friendly hub, while Manly Harbour Village offers a relaxed, yet sophisticated nautical atmosphere thanks to its spectacular centrepiece, the Manly Boat Harbour.

Wellington Point is possibly most famous for its iconic Moreton Bay fig trees which are perfect for relaxing under or for energetic children to climb. The trees feature prominently along the esplanade, with a new children's playground nearby.

The lively coastal village of Cleveland is a warm, welcoming, cosmopolitan area packed with plenty to see and do. Cleveland is also the gateway to magnificent North Stradbroke Island, famous for its endless stretches of sandy beaches, and land-based whale watching.

Another lovely Bayside precinct, Victoria Point is a great place to enjoy the natural surrounds of the Redlands. Victoria Point has several important environmental reserves which provide perfect settings to spot some of the area's most important residents: koalas.
