Green Shaded Park near the Beach
Woorim Beach on the east side of Bribie Island is a place with plenty of action. It has a Surf Club right on the Beach, which is adjacent to the Life Guard Lookout. There is parking – which at busy times can be a challenge. There is a pub, shops, cafes and more all within a few minutes walk from the beach.
Lions Park Woorim
It is a popular beach, but I have discovered that many family groups picnic in the Lions Park, thus enjoying the shade and shelter of the many trees in the park. It is still an easy walk to the beach – but on a hot day the trees and the facilities in the park have as much appeal as the white sandy beach. It is the best of both worlds.
There is a playground for the children, plenty of paths to ride one's scooter or skateboards – please be respectful of the pedestrians. There is also BBQ's, picnic tables and seats, artwork, and at times plenty of feathered visitors, as a little creek runs through the park and the birds like to paddle there.
Make sure that when the young one's head off for a swim that an adult is there to supervise them. It can be a busy beach too – so teach the children to swim between the flags.
Don't forget to take the sunscreen, hats, and mozzie repellent in summer too – essential for visiting our beaches in summer.
Head over to Bribie – and follow the signs to Woorim Beach, and at the end of First Avenue, you can turn right into Boyd Street and park there, or head for the parking area around North Ave.
