Destination guide

No man is an island…but you should explore this one!

Find yourself dreaming of an island getaway? Then book a stay in a Bribie Island vacation rental and soak up the laid-back vibe. Nestled in the northern part of Moreton Bay in Queensland, Australia, this small slice of paradise offers something for everyone. You could cool off in the crystal blue bay waters with a quick swim, then dry off by sunbathing on the sandy beaches with a cocktail in hand. If you're searching for something a little more active, the island's pristine national park is ripe for exploring. Finally, you can make time to visit the island's charming shops, restaurants, bars and galleries.

Things to do

Pristine park with beaches, and boating, fishing and forests

Drag yourself away from the comfort of your Bribie Island vacation rental to explore the many wonders tucked away on the island. Start by visiting Bribie Island National Park, an untouched area of beaches and forests that covers nearly a third of the island. The national park offers such activities as camping, boating and fishing, while offering sweeping views of the nearby Glass House Mountains. If you need a bit of culture on your vacation, make your way to the Bribie Island Seaside Museum, which examines the history of the region and offers plenty of hands-on exhibits for children.


High and low – the island offers adventures at every level

Your Bribie Island vacation rental will place you near a host of exciting adventures on the water. You can spend the day at the beach trying a variety of activities, including paddle boating, swimming, fishing, kayaking and surfing. Or sit back and relax as you charter a boat to tour the surrounding waters. Adrenalin junkies will find plenty of big thrills away from the water, including skydiving, a popular island excursion. For a more mellow experience, unwind with a day at the spa or shop at the numerous outdoor markets, which sell everything from fresh produce to locally made crafts.


Sunshine and plenty of it – island living is a breeze

Based on the weather, there's no bad time to visit Bribie Island. Summer is the island's warmest season, when the sun shines brightly and highs often climb to 26 degrees, but ocean breezes keep the area from getting too hot. If you're in Bribie Island during this time, however, make sure you pack an umbrella as summer's the rainiest season and thunderstorms are common. Winters are cool but mild – July is the coldest month – with daytime highs rarely dipping below 16 degrees. Spring and autumn offer comfortable conditions with highs hovering around 20 degrees.

Natural highlights

Let's get wild! From wallabies to white sand beaches

Although Bribie Island measures only 34 kilometres long and 8 kilometres at its widest point, it offers vastly different landscapes. The western side of the island faces the calm waters of the Pumicestone Passage, an area where turtles and dolphins swim through mangrove forests. The island's eastern portion looks out over the vast Pacific Ocean, the southern side offers white sand beaches and eucalyptus forests dominant the interior. Wildlife is abundant across the island, which plays host to such wildlife as kangaroos, wallabies, emus, green tree frogs and dingos, as well as around 350 species of birds.
