Brisbane Whale Watching

Brisbane Whale Watching invites you to come on board the magnificent Eye-Spy for an encounter with the whales. There’s no better place to observe the mighty Humpback than Brisbane’s Moreton Bay.

Reviewed By CJFallowfield - Llandrinio, United Kingdom

I was scheduled to go on this trip on a Friday, and sat at the meeting point for over 40 minutes waiting to be collected, only to find that it had been cancelled, so instead it was rearranged for the following Monday. By the time the tour bus had stopped to pick everyone up, it was just over an hour before we arrived in Redcliffe to walk out to the jetty to board the lovely Eyespy. I'd paid for the VIP ticket, which meant a separate air-conditioned cabin with a table and guaranteed window view, and it included a free drink and buffet lunch (I didn't partake in lunch so can't comment on this side of the trip). As it was almost the end of the season, and a week day to boot, there was probably no more than 60 people onboard, which meant that over the three decks there was plenty of room for people to spread out to get good shots of the whales. I'm not sure how easy that would have been if the ship was at full capacity. We were lucky enough to see three pods of whales during out time out, though the coveted "breaches" where the whales jump right out of the water, were at a distance, so you'd only have been able to capture those shots with a professional camera and zoom lens. We did see lots of rolling, slapping of tails and fins though - It's easy to get too wrapped up in trying to capture the perfect shot and not just taking the time to appreciate the beauty of witnessing this once almost extinct creature in all of its beauty - so I actually put my camera away and chose to be in the moment. A word of warning, it was a cloudy day with a strong breeze out on the water, so I didn't notice how strong the sun actually was and came away with quite painful sunburn - always put your suncream on when out on the water! It's heartbreaking to think that these magnificent creatures were hunted and killed in such a barbaric manner, thank goodness they are now protected and their numbers are increasing year on year. A very enjoyable day out, sunburn aside!

Pelican Park

Reviewed By seagullrob - Brisbane, Queensland

This is a fantastic park on the Redcliffe Peninsula near the water looking towards Sandgate - turn right when you come over the bridge,
The local Council has done a great job with this park, and it is very popular with families. There are free gas barbecue facilities (regularly cleaned by the Council), shelters, tables and chairs. There are bike paths for kids.
It hosts a huge annual kite-flying event. Water attractions launch from here.
Great for kids birthday parties.

Aeropower Helicopters

Located within the amazing local scenery of Morton Bay, Glass House Mountains, Bribie Island or even Brisbane CBD. Whatever the choice, your scenic flight will surely be one to remember. Or for those really special occasions, why not charter a helicopter to one of the local wineries!

Reviewed By Felicity B - Brisbane, Australia

Recently I was incredibly lucky to go for a charter flight with Aeropower, it was my second flight in a helicopter and it was absolutely amazing. To start with all the guys at Aeropower are equally friendly, supportive and professional - you instantly feel the passion they have for flying and they are great at answering any questions (I had quite a few) and making you feel comfortable. The aircraft are well presented, clean and comfortable and you feel very safe after your briefing. My charter took me up around the Glasshouse Mountains, over Australia Zoo, across to Bribie Island and then home around the bay - you'll be surprised both by how close you feel to the scenery whilst also being able to see clearly for miles - it is just, well, wow! In short I had a fantastic experience with Aeropower, I can't wait to go again and would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone.

Bee Gees Way

There is a bronze statue of the Bee Gees from when they were boys growing up in Redcliffe. The statue marks the start of Bee Gees Way, a walkway dotted with photos, anecdotes and other items donated by Barry Gibb. It was opened by Barry on 14 February 2013.

Reviewed By Sue K - Adelaide, Australia

Great experience! Extremely well set out chronological history of the BeeGees and their contributions to the music world. Loved that we were the only ones there it was like it was just for us. We arrived at 9 which coincided with the light and sound presentation ( there are several ). The best part is it’s free!

Settlement Cove

Reviewed By Belgo96 - Australia

You really do have to get there early. Because it is free entry, the pool gets very crowded. They could do with some more shady awnings and tables but other than that, this is stunning resource for families. The lagoon pool is really beautiful and it is in a great location looking out toward Moreton Bay. There are very few car parks though. You need to take the road down from the round-a-bout as you enter Redcliffe. We arrived at 10.30am on a weekday and there were no parking spots left. There is street parking (metered) throughout Redcliffe if you are prepared to walk. Along the front of the Esplanade it is 2 hour parking but one street back there is 3 hour parking. We went with a 5 year old and two 4 year olds and they absolutely loved it.
