Holiday on Bribie Island

Just one hour North of the hustle and bustle of Brisbane City is a hidden treasure that – once found – may become your favourite island getaway.

Cross the bridge over the Pumicestone Passage and you will find an island that is a subtropical paradise boasting unspoiled white sandy beaches surrounded by sparkling blue and turquoise waters called Bribie Island.

Bribie Island on the Queensland coast is the smallest and most northerly of the Moreton Bay islands. Easily accessible to land by a bridge, Bribie is fast becoming the perfect weekend getaway for city dwellers wanting a beautiful beachside holiday getaway within an hour’s drive from the City or Brisbane Airport.

Come unwind and get into the island groove while enjoying all the modern comforts of home. Everything you need is on the island, with spectacular parkland areas of natural flora and fauna to explore.

Take in the breathtaking beauty of the unspoiled beaches, go bushwalking, and do some bird watching.


Bike lanes are available throughout the island for cycling and waterfront walkways are peppered with adult gym equipment so you can maintain your fitness while taking in the spectacular waterfront views. Bring along your clubs to experience the island’s top rated golf courses. And between your activities, you can enjoy the island’s many shopping outlets, fine restaurants, funky cafes, pubs, bookshops, and even a twin theatre!

The protected waters of Pumicestone Passage make it ideal for kayaking, fishing, swimming, jet skiing, and even cruising into the sunset on a gondola!

If you just want to unwind or take in the natural beauty of the island, you can sit on the beach and watch the dolphins frolic and the seagulls glide past in the Passage. Dugongs also call Pumicestone Passage home, and you can take a ferry tour or a 4-wheel drive tour to learn more about the island’s unique habitat that is home to a rich diversity of plants and animals alike.
