Things To Do
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.
A bayside institution, The Full Moon Hotel is a favourite haunt for those who enjoy relaxing with live entertainment while taking in views across the bay.
Boondall Wetlands lies on the edge of Moreton Bay and includes more than 1,000 hectares of tidal flats, mangroves, grasslands, open forests and woodlands.
