The historic township of Redcliffe is one of Moreton Bay’s most cosmopolitan and interesting areas. Redcliffe has won two awards in the State and National Tidiest Towns Awards – ‘Queensland’s Tidiest Town’ in 2005-06 and Australia’s most ‘Environmentally Innovative’ in 2006-07.
The site of Queensland’s first European settlement, Redcliffe boasts an impressive combination of experiences, taking full advantage of its location on Moreton Bay, with water based activities taking centre stage.
Redcliffe Jetty is a day tripper’s delight with trips to Moreton Island, as well as whale watching tours from June to November. The jetty is also a top spot when it comes to fishing.
Activities such as boating, windsurfing, and surf skiing are all popular pastimes, as is swimming at Sutton’s Beach – the closest patrolled beach to Brisbane’s Central Business District. You can learn to dive there too, with operators conducting courses for novices through to experienced divers.
While cruising on the bay you are likely to see dolphins as well as turtles, dugongs and whales during their migration season.
Redcliffe is also ideal for thrill-seekers with beach sky-diving, and joy flights providing views from Brisbane to the Glass House Mountains.
If you prefer to stay dry, you can try your hand at beach volley ball at one of the courts set up on the beach.
Redcliffe offers an array of historical and cultural activities including a museum, complete with interactive exhibitions, and art galleries.
The beautiful parks and public spaces make it a favourite place for families to gather for picnics and barbecues. One of the most popular spots is Settlement Cove lagoon which features an artificial lagoon and plenty of playground equipment just perfect for children.
And let’s not forget food! Lovers of seafood in particular know Redcliffe well for its many quality eateries featuring fresh local seafood.
