Deception Bay

Heritage Trail

Deception Bay Heritage Trail is a fascinating and scenic 4 km waterfront walk that combines nature and history in one. Features of the Deception Bay Heritage Trail include a dedicated dog swimming beach (near Boama Park), boat ramps, wetlands, cottonwood groves and the historically significant Bancroft Sea Baths.

There are 13 information signs outlining details about the local history which makes this walk through Moreton Bay Marine Park particularly interesting. The signs discuss the lives of the local inhabitants as well as the early settlers, especially Dr Thomas Bancroft who carved out the bathing pools along the foreshore for his wife.
