Sandgate to Boondall

Sandgate was a popular seaside destination for Brisbane's colonial settlers in the late 1800s. Its rich heritage is a feature of the area today, with many homes and buildings reflecting the classic architectural styles of this bygone era. The protected parklands attract nature lovers to Sandgate to enjoy the marine life sanctuaries and mangroves established to protect the environment. 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.

Shorncliffe is one of Brisbane's hidden gems with expansive views across the bay to Moreton Island. Sunset over 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 or fish and chips on the foreshore.

Shorncliffe is a perfect location for anyone who likes being outdoors or keeping fit. There are beautiful walkways and cycleways with the bay on one side and parks on the other. You'll see children on bicycles with training wheels, dog owners walking their prized pooches, families picnicking and plenty of joggers.

Boondall is a quiet suburban oasis with wetlands and a lovely lake.
