Bribie Island National Park and Recreation Area

Bribie Island, Moreton Bay Area

Bribie Island, about an hour's drive from Brisbane is a treasure trove of plants and animals. The island is fringed by sandy beaches and sand dunes. Heaths, paperbark wetlands and freshwater creeks and lagoons, along with open forests are home to varied birdlife.

Tidal wetlands and waters around Bribie Island are part of Moreton Bay Marine Park. Fish, crabs and prawns breed in nearby Pumicestone Passage and dugong feed on its seagrass communities. Thousands of shorebirds feed and roost here, making great birdwatching opportunities.

Explore the easy Bicentennial walking tracks. Go boating or paddle a kayak around Pumicestone Passage. Try your luck at fishing or crabbing. Picnic at Lighthouse Reach or Lions Park. Pitch a tent at Mission Point, or in one of three other camping areas that are accessible only by four-wheel drive.
