Woody Point

Picturesque Woody Point allows visitors the chance to soak up a relaxed seaside village experience. Its many charming eateries and seaside arts and craft shops give Woody Point a casual and relaxed seaside atmosphere.

Perched at the southern tip of the Redcliffe Peninsula, its beaches are a much loved Brisbane aquatic playground where people can swim, sail, or lie back and watch the dolphins play. Come on a Sunday and watch the spectacular sight of yachts racing in the bay before they return to the local Humpybong Yacht Club.

Picnic facilities are abundant in the parks along the esplanade, and visitors can also enjoy a long, relaxing walk or cycle around the point on flat, dedicated pathways. A visit to the Gayundah Coastal Arboretum is certainly worthwhile and is perfect for relaxing, with its views to Moreton Island and array of rare plant species.

Woody Point is historically significant as the landing spot of Mathew Flinders in 1799. It is the final resting place of the heavily armed 'Gayundah' warship wreck which first took to the water in 1885 before being decommissioned in 1958.
