Overlooking the beautiful waters of the Pumicestone Passage, the Bongaree Jetty is a beautiful way to start your Bribie Island day trip. Dating back to 1911, Bongaree Jetty was once a lively port used for transporting tourists over to the island from the mainland. Still a lively tourist spot, the jetty offers an abundance of facilities. Playgrounds, sheltered picnic areas and toliet blocks stretch the stunning coastline making it a great place to pass your morning.
You can’t come to the beach and not have fish and chips! It’s a well loved Aussie tradition that all visitors should embrace in my opinion. There are plenty of family owned takeaway shops in Bribie, however Scoopy’s at Bongaree is my top pick. They offer a wide range of menu options from locally caught fish to delicious steak hamburgers, plus an array of ice creams! Any excuse for ice cream right?
The Seaside Museum celebrates it’s 5th anniversary this year. A small but comprehensive museum, the Seaside gives you great insight into Bribie Island’s rich history and culture. Run by local volunteers, I had the privilege of meeting Ann today who was more then happy to provide extensive information on several artefacts. One of my favourite exhibits at the museum was the Australian War Memorial section. They had an impressive collection of medals, badges and clothing from both WWI and WWII.
White sand that actually squeaks and waves that incise you regardless of the weather, Woorim Beach is the closest beach to Brisbane and no less beautiful then the rest. The best thing about Woorim is that it is regularly patrolled year round making it a safe place to swim. Located directly in front of the Surf Life Saving club, this beach offers swimmers and surfers a great spot to to enjoy all this beach has to offer.
