Island lifestyle close to the city

About 45 minutes north of Brisbane, Bribie Island is a natural playground for people who love the sun, sea and sand. Rich in wildlife, the island is home to hundreds of bird species and from time to time you might even encounter the odd emu.

Bribie Island represents an older demographic and more than half of the island’s residents are over the age of 55, with most being retired or semi-retired.

The island offers an excellent range of dining experiences there is a vibrant community with shops and malls that cater to everyone.

Bribie Island is home to a major shopping centre with a Woolworths, Target and many other specialist stores, so there is no need for locals to visit the mainland. The shopping centre also has an Australia Post store, major banks and beauty services.

A new attraction on the island is the Bribie Island Seaside Museum, a great day trip option and a wonderful destination to enjoy the views, learn about the island’s role in World War II and the region’s history. The museum is free to visit, and is open Tuesdays to Sundays.

Another museum of interest is the Abbey Museum. This museum originated in England, moved to Cyprus and finally found a home on Bribie Island. Well worth a visit, it is always good to keep an eye out for special events, including jousting, archaeological digs and talks.

Around 86 percent of the island is protected parkland, so future growth will be limited, but the required lifestyle infrastructure is already in place including golf courses, bowling clubs and movie theatres.
