Discover the underrated beaches that are closer then you think


If you are looking for crystal clear waters and white sand beaches that you don’t need to buy a plane ticket to get to I have just the place you are looking for. Located between Brisbane City and the Sunshine Coast, both less then an hour away from each direction and only a bridge to cross Bribie Island feels like you are on holidays without all of the long hours of travelling. Today I will be showing you some of my favourites beaches that I think you will love too…




Bongaree beach is known as the family friendly beach. Located on the Pumicestone Passage side, the waters are calm. You will see a ton of people on kayaks, jet ski’s, paddle boards and boats out fishing. There are a number of fish and chip shops to choose from too. I recommend grabbing some snacks and drinks and head down to the beach front with friends and family to enjoy the sunset.




Woorim is the most popular beach on Bribie Island. You can probably understand why. It has clear blue waters and white sand. Helpful tip – It has a lot of different walk ways along the esplanade so you don’t need to stay in the most populated area. If you are feeling a little more adventurous bring a 4WD! You are able to head up north of the island along the 4WD track. It is a lot less busy and it is always so fun driving in a 4WD along the beach. Bring a picnic basket full of goodies and set up on the beach relax for the rest of the day. I also recommend going to the main beach at Woorim but for something different try out the 4WD track with friends and family.



Red Beach

This beach is for all of the dog lovers out there, as it’s a dog beach. It is located south of the island. I have taken my dog plenty of times and she loves it. It is a  really great spot to bring your dog even if you are not living on Bribie Island because it is so close to the main land.
