Constructed in 1885 the Redcliffe Jetty has been instrumental in establishing Redcliffe as a popular tourist and holiday destination. The jetty is home to several marine operators including whale-watching tours. This is a must-see attraction while visiting Redcliffe.
Whale Watching Tours
Brisbane’s number one day tour includes a cruise on a luxury vessel, a sumptuous lunch, morning and afternoon teas and a licenced bar onboard. Watch friendly dolphins play and partake in an exciting whale watching adventure with full commentary! Bookings are advisable.
Redcliffe was the site of Queensland's first European settlement in 1824. From these historic beginnings, Redcliffe has grown into a thriving coastal centre. Take the fascinating heritage trail to find out more about this city’s rich and interesting historical landmarks.
Scarborough Boat Harbour
The Scarborough Boat Harbour is Redcliffe’s commercial fishing hub where you can sample seafood fresh from the trawlers at the local market, restaurants and fish & chipperies. Scarborough Boat Harbour is also the gateway to the magnificent Moreton Island. The island is serviced by a vehicular barge service and day cruise operators.
Settlement Cove Lagoon
Settlement Cove Lagoon is a tropical oasis with swimming lagoons, playgrounds and BBQ areas amongst tall palm trees and cascading waterfalls.
Moreton Island is one of the largest sand islands just off the coast of Redcliffe Peninsula and offers fantastic opportunities for four wheel driving, snorkelling, scuba diving, sailing and fishing. Its magnificent beaches and pristine rainforests are virtually untouched, the whole island being protected and controlled by the national park services. A ferry service runs daily.
Meet Percy and his Pelican friends for a 10am daily feeding at Pelican Park, Clontarf next to the Redcliffe Information Centre. A once in a lifetime experience.
