INFORMATION

Naturally beautiful, Bribie Island and its surrounding waters is a true showpiece of the Moreton Bay Region.

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. As you cross the Bribie Island bridge you have captivating views of Pumicestone Passage.

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. Bribie Island is an ideal destination for a relaxed family holiday, romantic mini-break or day trip from Brisbane with kids.

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 hours’ drive from Brisbane and is only a 45 minute drive from Brisbane Airport.
