Beautiful Bribie Island is only a 40 minute drive North of Brisbane – cross the bridge over the Pumicestone Passage and feel the relaxed atmosphere help you unwind. The calm waters of the Passage are home to dugongs, dolphins, migratory birds with pelicans waiting at the fisherman’s side for that fish! With the Glasshouse Mountains as a backdrop to glorious sunsets, followed by an evening at one of the many interesting restaurants, you will want to stay forever!

What about a game of golf on the all weather links course, a guided tour of the historical island and surrounds, a game of bowls (two clubs are within easy walking distance) or just relaxing around the solar heated pool with a good book to set the mood for a relaxing or fun evening at the local cafes, restaurants, RSL or bowls clubs.
