Redcliffe is located on Redcliffe Peninsula, approx 28kms from Brisbane on Moreton Bay. Unfortunately, it was after some vicious weather that I last came to Redcliffe.
The result, many of the tracks that led to the Beaches and some other areas were closed waiting for maintenance to begin.
Since the 1880s, Redcliffe has been a popular seaside resort for Brisbanites.
If you come here, I think you will know why!
In September each year, Redcliffe celebrates its history as Queensland's first European settlement location with the First Settlement Festival. Redcliffe Parade is closed to traffic for most of the day.
Redcliffe the name, originates from "Red Cliff Point" named by the explorer John Oxley.
Redcliffe became Queensland's first colony in 1824, however it never became the Capital!
