Calling all nature lovers

  • Join a guided eco-tour or get up-close-and-personal by learning to scuba dive. Prepare to see dolphins, dugong, turtles and whales.
  • Saddle-up on a guided horse ride or mountain bike adventure in one of the many conservation parks.
  • Poise your camera, ready to snap a glimpse of the marine migratory birds and wildlife high above.

Kick back

  • If you’re looking for a quieter pace with family, head over the bridge to the popular seaside escape of Bribie Island, with waterfront barbecues and picnic areas all framed with views inland to the Sunshine Coast’s Glass House Mountains.
  • Alternatively, the 125-kilometre coastal stretch is lined with beaches from Scarborough to Redcliffe.

The Moreton Bay Region spanning 2,037 square kilometres from Samford and Arana Hills to Redcliffe, Bribie Island, Caboolture, Dayboro, Woodford and Mt Mee offers diverse lifestyle opportunities.

These opportunities are provided by the bayside communities of Redcliffe and Bribie Island in the east, the suburban neighbourhoods extending from between 10 kilometres to 57 kilometres north of the Brisbane CBD alongside major north-south road and rail corridors and the rural townships and rural areas in the west.

The estimated resident population in the Moreton Bay area in 2016 was 438,000 persons, the third largest local government population in Queensland and Australia (following Brisbane and the Gold Coast). The region is also one of the fastest growing areas in Queensland. Between 30 June 2006 and 30 June 2016, the average annual growth rate was 2.8 per cent, compared with 1.9 per cent in Queensland as a whole. The population is currently projected to increase significantly by 2036 to 618,394 persons.

The Moreton Bay region is the key growth corridor north of Brisbane. Its major centres are a short distance from Brisbane’s city centre (Strathpine 22kms, North Lakes 30km, Redcliffe 35kms and Caboolture 50kms). The region has easy access to the Brisbane CBD, Brisbane Airport, Port of Brisbane and major transport routes in South East Queensland. Its ease of access and competitively priced residential and commercial premises and land has attracted numerous new residents, a highly skilled workforce and over 25,000 businesses (2014) and has underpinned the region’s strong economic performance.

Moreton Bay Regional Council is committed to improving the attractiveness of its main centres of business and employment and to providing opportunities for local business growth, and new business investment to support and complement continued strong population growth in the region.

The Council is actively planning to maintain the unique character and beauty of the many places that make up the Moreton Bay region.
