The ambiance is fantastic, live music, buskers showing off their skills, stalls selling creative local handicrafts and plenty to eat and drink; this really is a fun place to spend a day. The market is perfectly located close to the ocean, and you are welcome to take your pets with you. This market operates on almost every Sunday, so check the schedule and visit Redcliffe when it is on.

Gayundah Wreck

Unlike many other shipwrecks, there isn't a tragic story behind the HMQS Gayundah. The ship served a long life, first launched in around 1884 as a Naval ship and then when her glory days were over, as a barge for a civilian company. Finally, in the 1930's she was beached at her present location, still serving and a wave breaker. The ship is worth visiting and photographing, and the area it is in is ideal for a picnic, or cycling around.
