We are so fortunate to live 30 minutes to Bribie Island where there are not just one but two designated dog beaches. If you are looking for a off leash dog beach, look no further than Bribie Island. With designated dog parks and beaches, including off-leash areas, Bribie Island has plenty of spaces that cater to dogs and their human owners alike.
Our favorite’s is the beach from Red Beach car park around to Woody Bay, Woorim. This fantastic stretch of surf beach is but part of the entire dog friendly southern coastline of Bribie Island, which runs all the way from here around to Red Beach Bongaree.
Although a bit narrow at high tide, at low tide there’s plenty of running and digging space for all concerned. There’s a convenient car park nearby on Bennelong St, from which the short path leads straight into the midst of 4-legged action. Intrepid owners and leash-free pets can from here hike the 3-4 km distance via Woody Bay all the way through wild scrubby beachfront to the calmer waters of Bongaree.
History buffs may be interested in the relics of Woorim Beach’s time as a strategic Pacific defence site in World War II that are dotted at various spots along the beachfront on the other side of the patrolled area. The nearest of these is the naval defence Indicator Loop hut at the far end of North St and in the picnic grounds nearby one of its squat concrete power huts that many a picnicker has mistaken for a toilet block.
