Top Things To Do In The Bayside
Recharge and unwind in Brisbane’s beguiling bayside villages. Beneath that calm, seaside exterior, there’s plenty of bustle without the hustle.
Foreshore Parks – Shorncliffe, Sandgate & Manly Harbour Village
Brisbane’s foreshore is a sparkling gem just waiting to be explored. Follow the brown and white dugong signs on the Moreton Bay Tourist Drive. Walk or cycle the fantastic waterside pathways of the foreshore villages. Try delicious fish and chips, relax in the sun or watch all the action on the water from the comfort of your picnic rug.
Waterpark Wonders – Wynnum
Pandanus Beach at Wynnum’s Water Park and Playground is a kids’ and parents’ paradise. With plenty of trees and cafés, grown-ups can relax as the kids are entertained by a pirate-themed playground and a pod of rubber whales spraying jets of water.
Get Active – Boondall Wetlands
An amazing variety of birdlife, diverse vegetation and Aboriginal art totems can be discovered among the more than 1000 hectares of tidal flats, mangroves, saltmarshes and open forest of the ecologically important Boondall Wetlands. Try walking, biking, canoeing or take a bird watching tour.
Taste of the Town
Treat yourself to Moreton Bay’s fresh seafood, outdoor dining pleasures and stunning views at Sandgate’s The Full Moon Hotel and Raphael’s or take in the views of Manly Harbour’s sparkling marina at The Fish Café Food & Wine Bar and Wilson’s Restaurant.
