The Boondall Wetlands lie on the edge of Moreton Bay between Nudgee Beach, Boondall and Shorncliffe. The wetlands include more than 1000 hectares of tidal flats, mangroves, salt marshes, melaleuca, grasslands, open forests and woodlands. This track passes through mangroves fringing the shores of Moreton Bay and the banks of Nudgee Creek. Birdlife abounds in the mangroves and a bird hide overlooks the tidal flats at the creek mouth. If you walk at low tide you will notice that these flats are vital feeding grounds for shorebirds. High and low tides in the mangroves reveal two very different worlds.

Godwin Beach

Moreton Bay And Islands, Moreton Bay Area
Serene and tranquil, Godwin Beach in the northern reaches of Deception Bay is one of the best vantage points to view the entire expanse of land forming its curved coastline. This remarkable quietness also makes Godwin Beach an ideal spot for birdwatchers or wildlife photographers. Observe the abundant birdlife that flock to the surrounding mangrove and mudflat areas, particularly at low tide times, or head to the nearby Nature Reserve where kangaroos and other wildlife can be viewed in their natural habitat. Being a little out-of-the-way also appeals to those who like to go fishing or crabbing. Plenty of bream, whiting and flathead are caught in the water around this area. You don’t have to compete for water space and you might convince one of the regulars to reveal their secret fishing spot! The scenic beauty of Bribie Island is only five minutes' drive away.

Free Entry
Nudgee Beach is the closest beach to the Brisbane Central Business District.

Caboolture

Country Valleys, Moreton Bay Area
Just under 60 minutes from downtown Brisbane, Caboolture is the gateway to the Sunshine Coast. White sandy beaches, stunning mountain scenery and charming country villages await visitors to the Caboolture Shire.

Caboolture is well known for skydiving and gliding at the town's main airfield. The nearby Abbey Museum of Art and Archaeology houses a priceless collection of antiques and fine art from around the world with treasures spanning 250,000 years of history.

It's home to dolphins, dugongs, turtles and more than 350 species of birdlife. An easy 20 minutes from Caboolture, Bribie Island is linked by bridge and is a popular tourist destination for its excellent fishing, surf beaches, National Parks and reserves.

Beachmere

Beachmere, Moreton Bay Area
The township of Beachmere, tucked away in the northern section of Moreton Bay, is a quiet yet pleasant hideaway. Its location just above Deception Bay, where the mouth of the Caboolture River flows into the bay, makes it an ideal spot for boating and fishing. Public boat ramps can be accessed either on the river or on the bay itself. For those without their own, boats are also available for hire in Beachmere. Kids will enjoy watching millions of tiny soldier crabs scuttling along the mud flats at low tide. There is a skate park located in Beachmere too, where children can ride bikes or skate. Further inland on the Caboolture River is a marina and chandlery.

Sandgate

Sandgate, Brisbane Area
The architectural beauty of both civic and residential buildings throughout Sandgate makes this coastal village one of Moreton Bay's heritage showpieces. Sandgate, located below the Redcliffe peninsula, was a popular seaside destination for Brisbane's colonial settlers in the late 1800s. Its rich historical past is a feature of the area today, with many homes and buildings reflecting the classic architectural styles of this bygone era. Take the opportunity to walk Sangate's Historical Trail featuring Sandgate Post Office, Railway Station and Sandgate Pier and the famous clock at the Town Hall. Sunset over the the Shorncliffe Pier is a spectacular sight well worth watching, perhaps over a drink or meal at one of the seaside hotels such as the Full Moon Hotel. Every full moon, Sangdate hosts Moonfest on the beach at Shorncliffe. Watch as fire dancers and fire stick twirlers dance with the full moon rising! Also important in the area are the protected environmental parklands of Tinchi Tamba, Deagon and Boondall located to the west and south. Nature lovers come to Sandgate to enjoy the mangroves and marine life sanctuaries that have been set up to protect the environment. Take a walk through the Boondall Wetlands and view the incredibly diverse birdlife. Sandgate is also renowned for its thriving artistic and cultural community with many local theatre groups, artists, and musicians living and performing in the area. The annual Bluewater Festival held over the Easter weekend in Lower Moora Park - Shorncliffe, attracts many visitors to watch the offshore start of the Brisbane to Gladstone yacht race. Sandgate is a 35-minute drive from the centre of Brisbane.

Ocean View

Country Valleys, Moreton Bay Area
For a relaxing day in the country or a romantic weekend for two, it's hard to beat the beautiful mountain-top community of Ocean View. Known as the gateway to Mount Mee in the Pine Rivers Shire, Ocean View is only an hour's drive from the centre of Brisbane, but a world away in mindset. It's a quiet, secluded community boasting stunning valley views and charming scenery. The drive to Ocean View winds past small farms and picturesque countryside. When the mercury rises in Brisbane, Ocean View is guaranteed to be at least four degrees cooler. The elevated altitude and strong sea breezes create a micro-climate which is perfect for fine wine production. See the proof of this for yourself with a visit to one of the local wineries. Enjoy a meal at a fine a la carte restaurant and sample a local drop at the cellar door. Just down the road you will find the village of Dayboro where you can browse the art galleries and art and craft shops. Accommodation at Ocean View includes bed-and-breakfasts and cottage holiday rentals.

The Sunday markets at North Pine Country Park are worth a visit, as you never know what you might find. Then, for the kids, feeding the deer at the deer farm is always popular, as is getting close to the animals at the zoo in Dakabin. If you’d like to get a bit active, there are plenty of exciting activities in Pine Rivers. Take part in a game of skirmish, go horse riding through the valley floor of Kurwongbah on a moonlit night, enjoy an adventure escapade, go on a four wheel drive hinterland excursion or play a leisurely round of golf at one of several clubs in the Shire.
