Tourism Queensland has added a new video to their YouTube channel showing some of the beautiful outdoor areas of the Sunshine Coast. The video covers places where you can go walking and paddling.
It features one of my favourite, still undiscovered sites, Bribie Island. It’s a great place to visit for beautiful waterside walks, paddling, boating, fishing and it’s a mecca for bird watchers.
Pumicestone Passage, which separates the island from the mainland has sheltered waters, and the beaches on this side of the island are great for little kids because there are no waves. Most times we’ve been there, dolphins have come right into shore.
Our Sunshine Coast walks book details two walks on Bribie Island. The path on the surfside takes you to an historic WWII site via parklands and the beach. The other, which follows the parkside paths along Pumicestone Passage is also good for bikes, or children in strollers or on scooters. If you time it right, you can finish as the sun sets behind the Glasshouse Mountains.
Bribie Island can be reached via a road bridge and is about an hour’s drive north of Brisbane.
