A guide to the best coastal and hinterland walks of Southern Gold Coast, showcasing the glorious natural wonders of the region
Enoggera Dam, Brisbane’s heritage-listed water reservoir dating from 1866, is The Gap’s bush water playground and one of Walkabout Creek’s leading attractions.
At the base of the Shorncliffe cliffs is this enchanting little bay with grassy stretches shaded by cotton trees, rock pools, modern white picnic shelters, BBQs and a playground.
A little strip of patrolled sand that is dominated by the modern deco façade of Sails restaurant, Suttons Beach is one of the best swimming beaches on the peninsula.
The perfect antidote to the corporate bustle of the CBD across the river, Streets Beach has something of the surreal about it.
Of the string of little bay beaches that line the Redcliffe Peninsula, Scarborough on the far northern tip would have to be the prettiest.
Only a short hike from Redcliffe proper, Margate Beach is a charming English style ribbon of beach with calm surf ideal for paddling.
