Margate to Redcliffe along the Beachwalk

Redcliffe is a municipal location north-northeast of Brisbane, the state capital of Queensland, Australia. Known also as “the Redcliffe peninsula”, the area covers the suburbs of Clontarf, Kippa-Ring, Margate, Newport, Redcliffe, Rothwell, Scarborough and Woody Point.

Redcliffe is home to over 55,000 residents over its total area of 38.1 km2 (14.7 sq mi). The peninsula is relatively flat with few areas rising more than 20 m (66 ft) above sea level

Redcliffe is the first European settlement in Queensland.

A seaside location with 22 kilometres (14 mi) of coastline and a mainly working class population, Redcliffe has a high emphasis on sport and recreation. More than 35 kilometres (22 mi) of dedicated bikeways surround the peninsula, and local sporting clubs include baseball, croquet, golf, hockey, lawn bowls, netball, softball, tennis, rugby, football, Australian football and touch football. Scouting and Guiding groups are also in Redcliffe.

Scuba divers can be seen diving from local shore sites Queens Reef in Scarborough, and the Redcliffe jetty in the town centre, as well as several boats which depart for diving in the wider Moreton Bay area.

To celebrate the start of the Brisbane to Gladstone yacht race, the Festival of Sails event is held yearly on Good Friday.

In September, Redcliffe celebrates its history and status as Queensland’s first European settlement location with an annual First Settlement Festival.

There are many water birds along the shore…pelicans, seagulls, egrets, ibis, plovers
