The beautiful seaside village of Scarbough is a vibrant, lively precinct where something is always happening.

Always a hive of activity at the north end of the Redcliffe Peninsula is the Scarborough Boat Harbour. Many tour operators launch from here, as well as the vehicular ferries that service Moreton Island. Nearby Newport Marina is also home to a number of cruise, scuba charter and fishing experience tour operators.

Fishing, boating, diving and yachting activities are all based in Scarborough.

Fresh seafood is synonymous with Scarborough with many visitors making the trek to enjoy a gourmet feast or a more casual outdoor meal of fish and chips.

Scarborough was dubbed home to ‘Australia’s Friendliest Beach’ in 2004 in the Keep Australia Beautiful Clean Beach challenge. The beach area and its surrounding esplanades and parks are enjoyed by family groups picnicking and playing, swimmers, water sports enthusiasts, walkers, cyclists and even parachuters who often use the beach as a landing zone.

Children will especially love the themed playgrounds of Pirate Place and Railway Place at Scarborough Beach Park with its amazing play equipment and large cottonwood climbing trees. Railway Place has been specially designed so that all young people, including children with disabilities, can explore and enjoy. Jamieson Park’s with its northern views to Deception Bay and the Glass House Mountains also has facilities perfect for family outings enabling more people to enjoy a day at this delightful spot.
