Day Trip To Red Beach Bribie Island Queensland Australia


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.


Our favorite’s is the beach from Red Beach car park around to Woody Bay, Woorim. This fantastic stretch of surf beach is but part of the entire dog friendly southern coastline of Bribie Island, which runs all the way from here around to Red Beach Bongaree.

Although a bit narrow at high tide, at low tide there’s plenty of running and digging space for all concerned. There’s a convenient car park nearby on Bennelong St, from which the short path leads straight into the midst of 4-legged action. Intrepid owners and leash-free pets can from here hike the 3-4 km distance via Woody Bay all the way through wild scrubby beachfront to the calmer waters of Bongaree.

History buffs may be interested in the relics of Woorim Beach’s time as a strategic Pacific defence site in World War II that are dotted at various spots along the beachfront on the other side of the patrolled area. The nearest of these is the naval defence Indicator Loop hut at the far end of North St and in the picnic grounds nearby one of its squat concrete power huts that many a picnicker has mistaken for a toilet block.


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.

  1. Aww, I love the beach so much it is soothing and relaxing. I see your pet baby is having fun. I always wanted to take my dogs to the beach but I get scared that they would run after all the humans..jajaja


  2. I can imagine taking my dog, Riley here and having so much fun with him! I like the fact that dogs are very much welcome here! Thanks for sharing this location with us, I'd love to visit someday soon!
