I am always looking out for new experiences, wherever I may find myself.

Brennan Park is located along the water at the south-western end of Bribie Island. On my visit, I arrived as the sun was going down and headed straight to the walkway near the water, where I found a pretty impressive scene with an orange sky over the fringes of Brisbane in front of me and the Glasshouse Mountains in the distance.
A walk along the shore would be great with the sun about to go down
I did turn around eventually though and took a look at the rest of the park and can tell you that it has plenty of other things to offer and covers all the basics. There's BBQs, toilets and play equipment.
It's the equipment that stands out in my opinion (a least, when the sun isn't going down) and it eventually tore me away from the view to take a look. In keeping with the unique and fun stuff I keep seeing around Bribie Island (first there was the rock climbing structure at Tintookie Park, which, though I've seen more since, was the first time I saw anything like it) it's not just your average equipment.
The most unique piece of equipment is the pommel swing that doesn't just go in a short, straight line (these swings are the ones with the circle of rubber you sit on). Here it's a big circle and there's a platform where you can climb on and try to get the momentum to make it all the way around.
Also at Brennan Park are a few posts with information abut residents of Bribie Island who have been here for decades. Even more noticeable is a jetty that juts out from the walkway and when I visited there were lots of people fishing off it. These people were far outnumbered by the birds in the trees though, which were honestly deafening when you walked beneath them. I've never heard anything like it.
