Bribie Island

Walk Or Cycle

A flat easy walk or cycle of about 7km return, this shady path hugs the seafront through a continuous parkland to the Bribie Island Bridge and beyond and is ideal for families and those who want a leisurely ride.

1. Start at the car park on the far southern reach of Bongaree. The first few hundred metres are fairly exposed as at this point there’s just a path with the esplanade on one side and low-lying dunes on the other. From here it’s a delightful walk or ride through picnic areas, benches, playgrounds and beside tiny strips of white-capped beach. Bribie Island was a major wartime command post with a fortresses and batteries up and down the beach on the surf side, the remnants of which remain today, overgrown with dune vines. And it was off the coast about forty miles from here that a Japanese sub sunk the Centaur hospital boat. On the Bongaree side, an old wartime storage depot can be seen on Welsby Parade and along the path there are reference plaques to war time activity.

2. The path continues under the bridge and on to Sylvan Beach where there’s a chirpy talking history monument worth having a listen to, and beyond are more playgrounds, a mangrove boardwalk and a kiosk over the water. After several hundred metres the path enters a private estate – at this point turn and retrace.

3. Back at the start, around the corner at Buckley’s Hole, is a bird hide which is a great view spot for some of the 350 species of bird that call Bribie Island home.
