Bribie Island

Continuing our quest to discover Brisbane and the surrounding areas, on Sunday we spent the day at Bribie Island. Bribie Island is approx an hour's drive north of Brisbane and the only Island close to Brisbane that is connected by a bridge.

We started out at Bongaree which is on the South East of the Island. Being on the sheltered side of Bribie this is a lovely little village that is ideal for young kids, as there's virtually no surf. There's a small beach with a pier, which is surrounded by parklands with plenty of BBQ areas and children's play areas.

From Bongaree you can get a view of the bridge back to the mainland. Also, you'll have to take my word for it because I forgot to take a photo but to the left of this image there would be a view of the Glasshouse Mountains in the background..

After having lunch at Bongaree, we then drove 7km straight across to the west side of the Island to Woorim. Whereas Bongaree is ideal for the small kids, Woorim is great for the big kids (me), as there is plenty of surf to play in but nothing too scary..

Although Lauren is like a fish in the pool she's still wary of the ocean...
