Margate, Redcliffe is a unassuming seaside village just 40 minutes north of Brisbane City and 25 minutes from the Brisbane Airport.
Boasting the longest mainland stretches of sand beach together with a trendy two-kilometre redeveloped timber boardwalk, which hugs the shores of the Moreton Bay Marine Park. With spectacular views of Moreton Island, it's no wonder the boardwalk is popular with walkers and cyclists, which is part of the larger Moreton Bay Cycle Way network.
To the northern end of the beach sits the quaint Scotts Point swimming pavilion built in 1937 which gives an insight into the popular beach life of a bygone era, along with a wonderful position to take a dip.
Adding to the pleasant ambience are the many ancient Norfolk Pines that line the Esplanade along Margate, Redcliffe. These serve to remind us of the first settlers on the Redcliffe Peninsula who had the forethought to plant seedlings more than 150 years ago. The shade provided by the canopy of the huge branches provides prevention from sunburn in the summer months.
