An exciting initiative currently being trialled from Woorim Beach Access Point 12 at Bluey Piva Park is the addition of accessible matting that makes the beach accessible to prams and mobility devices. Neighbouring Bribie Island Surf Club has also introduced free beach wheelchair hire on weekends and public holidays. To hire one of the two beach wheelchairs available under this trial, call (07) 3408 1188, or email bribiesc@bigpond.com .

One of the highlights of Woorim Beach is the very real possibility of seeing bottlenosed dolphins, Australian humpback dolphins, and from June to October, the occasional humpback whale during their annual migration.

Bluey Piva Park provides a number of benches and picnic tables overlooking Woorim Beach, and on any given day there are people sitting with binoculars looking out over the ocean towards the western shore of Moreton Island.

Blue Piva Park is also a bird watcher's paradise. From the brahminy kites and white bellied sea eagles that soar along the beach front, to small birds such as the rainbow bee eaters that sit amongst the trees, Bluey Piva Park is worthy of hours spent with binoculars or a camera.
