"Paradise Island"

Bribie Island is a coastal paradise that offers not only the closest surf beach to Brisbane but also protected sailing and fishing in Pumicestone Passage. Bribie Island is predominantly National Park and Marine Park, and is characterised by a relaxed lifestyle and enjoyable sub-tropical climate.

Bribie Island is 45km from Brisbanes CBD and some 17km from the Bruce Highway, the main north-south arterial route connecting Brisbane to the Sunshine Coast. The Island is approximately 34km long and up to 8km wide. Bribie Islands wetland areas, heath, coastal forest and beaches are largely protected within the Bribie Island National Park. In fact, less than 20% of the Island can be built upon.

The tranquil waters of Pumicestone Passage are a sanctuary for dolphins, turtles, dugongs and migratory birds. Pumicestone Passage extends north to Caloundra, and much of it is a Marine Park. Bribie Island is also only a short cruise from some of Queenslands best fishing and game fishing grounds off Moreton Island. The Moreton Island resort of Tangalooma is also within easy reach, as are some of Queenslands best diving spots such as Flinders Reef. Ocean access is quick and safe, with no treacherous bars to navigate.

According to the latest figures from the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS), a little over 20,000 people currently live on Bribie Island, however, 84% of the island is protected from development and this limit to development dictates a natural population cap of around 30,000 people, meaning that Bribie Island will never become as crowded as the Gold Coast or Sunshine Coast.

In addition to the 20,000 permanent residents, up to an additional 1,100 people at any one time visit the Island.

I can tell you; there are now less than 10,000 chances to live on this Island paradise and when we reach the proposed population cap of 30,000 people, up will go the No Vacancy sign. Is the glass half empty?

I can also tell you; that if I am ever down to my last five dollars, I will stroll along the waterfront, to the Blue Anchorage restaurant, order a glass of the house white, sit outside in the sun, watch people catch bream off the jetty, children play on the pristine sand, dolphins slowly cruise by, and look down at my glass. Thank goodness my glass, is still half full.
Thank goodness, I live in paradise.

"Bribie Island"

Bribie is a great place for all young and old plenty of outdoor fun to be had , fishing, boating, bush walks and the ever changing landscape. The Pumicstone passage is the best to watch a fantastic sunset and take in the glasshouse-mountains after a long day of fun. It’s getting busier on the island which is great for small businesses. Housing developments are being sold very quickly and prices are going up dramatically. It’s a great place to come and see live music always something on at Sandstone Point hotel to entertain the young & old. Overall it’s a unique place to live & holiday.. 🏡😊🥂🎉🥳

"Nice place to live."

I've just moved to Bribie Island. It's a great place during the week.
Plenty place to walk ride a bike paddle the kayak. It's a shame that there's no Coles , KFC , or Hungry jacks.

"Dont do it (Paradise spoilt)"

Went for a drive over to the island today and compared to 4 years ago the traffic is a nightmare. This is a weekday outside school hours. More houses have being built but the roads and shops havnt keep up . Both are the same as it was 5 years ago, plus it can flood in parts of Ningi which cuts the whole island off
