A popular destination for Brisbaner's
Bribie Island, a 34km sand island, is located in the north-western area of Moreton Bay.
From the mainland cross over the tranquil waters of the Pumicestone Passage.
Bribie has quite a few retiree's living there, and who could blame them, I wouldn't mind retiring there either!
Major areas are Bellara (where the majority of shops are),as well as Bongaree and Woorim.
The island is a popular destination for a daytrip from Brisbane and for longer holidays.
We have our own Caravan, so stay at the waterfront, Bongaree Caravan Park.
There is a huge variety of accommodation from holiday units, motels, b&bs, guesthouses, tourist parks and camping areas to choose from, book during holiday times.
