Best Bayside Beaches
Brisbane's bayside beaches are a world away from their Sunshine Coast and Gold Coast counterparts and more reminiscent of English coastal resorts.
Featuring historic piers and jetties, quaint 1920s bathing pavilions, boardwalks, red-hued sands and gentle lapping waters they make a great and easily accessible alternative to braving the coast highways. And with their protected waters and beachfront playgrounds they are perfect for families with young children.
A narrow strip of sand hemmed by giant Moreton Bay figs makes a great place to get away from it all but the attraction here is the sandbar walk at low tide across to King Island where a family once lived...
Also worth a mention is Pandanus Beach, a tiny fine white sand beach framed by pandanus trees and tucked away next to the Wynnum jetty, where sunbakers in the know hang out and go for a dip.
