Walk along the cliff front
I had heard about the red cliffs at Scarborough and set out to find them. There's no sign about the cliffs there, (unless I missed it) but found a park, The Bill Marsh Lookout and parked my car nearby.

A short distance away is a staircase down to the beach. It is clear that low tide is the best time to head down to see the cliffs, as the water comes right up to the cliffs at high tide. My timing was good! It can be a challenging walk back up the stairs!
It is a bit confusing as some literature talks about Red Cliff Point at Woody Point, and some of Red Cliff Point at Scarborough. But it is the red cliffs along the peninsula that was the inspiration of the name of Redcliffe - but Scarborough or Woody Point?
Red cliffs at Scarborough
Some of the history of Woody Point is here. The information about the red cliffs at Scarborough is here.
Take care when walking along near the cliffs, as there are concerns about possible erosion. And the sand has plenty of stones and other marine debris which makes walking a challenge.
The colours of the cliffs are stunning, and I am sure photographers would enjoy spending time there with their cameras!
Another free and interesting place to visit on the Redcliffe Peninsula.
