Brisbane's Bayside

Family day out at Brisbane's bayside

The foreshores of Wynnum, Manly and Shorncliffe, accessible from Brisbane’s CBD, are popular destinations for barbecues, picnics and water activities such as fishing, windsurfing and jetskiing. While Wynnum features the popular esplanade, a delightful wading pool and water park for children, its neighbour Manly boasts the Manly Harbour Village with its fine eateries, and a marina full of magnificent yachts. Sandgate is renowned for its architectural history and the flat esplanade running the length of the beach. Like Shorncliffe, it is filled with picnic facilities and small, charming beaches.
