Things to Do on a Day Trip to Redcliffe – Seaside Wonderland

Redcliffe is located a mere 40 minutes north of the city of Redcliffe you will find the magical seaside wonderland that is Redcliffe Peninsula. Redcliffe was once a quiet and quaint little town, and it has managed to keep to that image despite the exponential growth.


Settlement Cove Lagoon

Settlement Cove Lagoon is located on the Redcliffe Parade. It is completely free, and you can go there anytime. The man-made lagoon is the next best thing after the fantastic luxury pools at Redcliffe holiday apartments the likes of Oaks Redcliffe Mon Komo Suites. There are shaded areas for barbecues and picnics. The cove overlooks Moreton Bay and is sheltered and constantly patrolled by lifeguards so you can go for some sea-bathing without any fear. There's plenty of parking right next to the beach too if you are coming by car.


Scarborough Beach

Scarborough Beach is yet another beautiful beach in Redcliffe. It is also home to Scarborough Park that would be a hit with children of all ages. It has a massive theme park named Pirate Park with a tree in the middle that kids can climb and pretend they're in Peter Pan's Neverland. Some of the parks in the area are accessible and there is also a calm beach and a huge inflatable in the grassy knoll.


Redcliffe Museum

Redcliffe Museum is open from Tuesday to Sunday from 10 am to 4 pm and is a great place to learn about the history of the area. Especially about the indigenous people of the land, the Gubbi Gubbi people. If you want your children to learn more about the indigenous people of Australia, the museum has some great displays including interactive displays that children can access.


Redcliffe Jetty Markets

Redcliffe comes alive on weekends thanks to numerous farmers markets. It has become a kind of local culture where the entire town flocks by to the waterfront streets. There's plenty to eat and drink and all of it freshly made when you order. There are also tonnes of entertainment, completely pet-friendly, a jumping castle and fantastic views of Moreton Bay. You will find it a great place to spend a Sunday.


Whale Watching

You can also go whale watching off the coast of the Redcliffe Peninsula during the season that goes from June to November. The Eye Spy ship leaves the Redcliffe Jetty all days of the week and prices range from $135 upwards. The cruise is a magical experience as you get to get up close to the gentle giants of the ocean and watch them swim by as they make their migratory journeys. The staff of the ship are very friendly and take their job seriously so you can be assured that you are completely safe. Children and adults will be given lifejackets and the tickets also include a buffet lunch that offers kid-friendly options as well. It would be a wonderful time that the family can spend together.
