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.
