Set on a peninsula in the picturesque Moreton Bay, the City of Redcliffe is bound by 22km of golden sandy beaches and rocky red headlands with stunning ocean and island views. The suburbs of Clontarf, Kippa-Ring, Margate, Scarborough, Redcliffe, Rothwell and Woody Point together make up the City of Redcliffe.

While offering city facilities, the laid-back coastal lifestyle of Redcliffe is less than 45 minutes drive north of the Brisbane CBD and only 25 minutes from the Brisbane International and Domestic airports.

Margate and Redcliffe are residential eastern seaside suburbs with Redcliffe being the administrative and commercial heart of the Peninsula. The Eastern Esplanade is extremely popular with both locals and visitors.

Between the waterfront parade and the beach, strips of parkland have been created with wonderful family entertainment facilities, such as playgrounds and BBQ areas. Stunning views meet the eye in all directions from these parks lined with Norfolk pine. Settlement Cove Lagoon, with a manmade beach, is the jewel in the crown at Redcliffe Pt.

Scarborough lies just north of Redcliffe and is a well-established suburb that carries an excellent reputation. Water features dominate, from canal developments with large and impressive homes with equally impressive boats at the marina, to established streets with excellent sea views, large gardens and tall, leafy trees.

The delightful fishing harbour is the gateway to Moreton Island and the best spot on the peninsula to sample the freshest fish. Here there are also commercial fishing boats, a car ferry to Moreton Island, charter boats and a thriving whale-watching industry.

There are many parks with picnic facilities and children’s playgrounds throughout the suburb and along the foreshore, all with excellent facilities. Scarborough is definately the place to relax, indulge and soak up the relaxed coastal lifestyle at one of the many cafes.
