Bribie Island - Brisbane Tourist Guide
Bribie Island is a gorgeous sand island located across the Pumicestone Passage in the northern section of Moreton Bay. It’s around 30 minutes from the city centre and you can easily reach it by bridge, making it the most easily accessible sand island in Queensland.
It’s a great residential and holiday island which offers a relaxed lifestyle and an easy weekend getaway (just a little over an hours drive from the Brisbane CBD) for those wanting to spend a few days at the beach.
Much of the island, in fact 86% of it is still protected by Environmental, National and Marine Parks so it will continue to remain a beautiful holiday destination for years to come, with development limited and the natural ecosystems maintained.
There’s two sides to Bribie Island. The calm side is located on the passage side and has views of the stunning Glasshouse Mountains. This is a great place to swim and fish in calm waters. If you look close enough you might also get the chance to spot a dolphin, dugong or turtle enjoying the tranquil waters. The other side is known as the surf side and stretches 5km long and is a terrific spot for surfers.
There’s more to the island than great beaches and fishing. You can also play a round of golf, have a turn at lawn bowls, go four wheel driving, visit the cinemas and enjoy the restaurants and cafes.
