Trip To Red Beach Bribie Island, Queensland. Australia.
Bribie Island is a great place for a family holiday. Not as expensive as the Gold and Sunshine coasts. Only about an hour from Brisbane and then another hour to the sunshine coast, definitely worth a visit.
We are so fortunate to live 30 minutes to Bribie Island where there is not just one but two designated dog beaches. If you are looking for a off leash dog beach, look no further than Bribie Island. With designated dog parks and beaches, including off-leash areas, Bribie Island has plenty of spaces that cater to dogs and their human owners alike.
From the car park off Tully Street, Bongaree, you can reach Red Beach by following a vegetation-shrouded path to the surf-side stretch of sandy shores. With the vine-covered dunes spanning a few kilometres, Red Beach eventually meets up with Woody Bay which is just around the corner from the Woorim Beach off-leash dog area, making for a great scenic walk for dog owners (best done at low tide).
On the Bruce Hwy north of Brisbane, take the exit to Bribie Island (exit 152). If heading north, after taking the exit, continue straight ahead under the overpass then immediately left to head to Bribie Island. If heading south, after taking the exit, continue straight ahead under the overpass. The exit follows along the highway for about 1km. Keep to the left to head to Bribie Island. Follow along Bribie Island Rd for 18km to the bridge across to Bribie Island. Continue over the bridge and at the roundabout go right around to head back towards the bridge (forth exit). Get into the left lane and turn left into Welsby Pde with a brown sign for Bongaree. Follow Welsby Pde for 3.2km, which becomes Toorbul St. At the roundabout, go straight ahead with the brown sign for Red Beach into Spowers St. After 200m, turn right into Gregory St, then at the end turn left into Tully St. Follow Tully St for 350m and turn right into the access track towards Red Beach. The parking area is about 500m in along the access track.
