Sutton’s Beach & Queen’s Beach
If you want to spend a day relaxing by the water, head over to Redcliffe, located at the southern end of Moreton Bay, just north of Brisbane. These beaches feature beautiful, clean water and sand, and are quieter than many of the beaches located closer to downtown, which attract many tourists. Sutton’s Beach (Marine Parade) is paticularly good for kids, because it is patrolled by lifeguards, while Queens’s Beach (Queens Beach Esp) is more open and makes a great place to relax.
Cedar Creek Swimming Holes
If you would prefer to swim somewhere that is truly secluded, the Cedar Creek Swimming Holes are a great way to get in touch with nature and cool off on a hot summer’s day. There are plenty of places to relax and swim along this gentle river, and you will feel like you are in the middle of a fairy-tale forest. From Brisbane, it is an hour drive up to Cedar Creek along State Route 22.
