Bribie Island is 65km north of Brisbane and has the closest surf beaches to Brisbane. Pumicestone Passage, which separates the island from the mainland, extends from Caloundra in the north to Deception Bay in the south. Visitors can drive to Bribie Island via the bridge from the mainland. The island is accessible by a bridge. Turn off from the highway near Caboolture.
The island is 34km long and 8km wide and is mostly made up of parks. Popular activities on Bribie Island include bird watching and bushwalking in the National Park, boating and fishing in the Pumicestone Passage and cycling the many bike paths. Pumicestone Passage Marine Park is home to dugong, dolphins, turtles and hundreds of species of birds.
The Bribie Community Arts Centre offers exhibitions by Art Groups working at the Centre, visiting Artists, and the Moreton Bay Regional Council. A special time to visit is the Art and Craft Fair which showcases both work at the Centre, and at the adjoining Bribie Woodcrafters and Gem Clubs. Bribie Island was the home of painter, Ian Fairweather.
