Reef Point juts out into Deception Bay, just next to Scarborough Boat Harbor at the northern end of Redcliffe Peninsula. With Scarborough Point on one side and Oyster Point on the other, it is a quiet little spot to beach comb and paddle. Boat enthusiasts will enjoy watching the passing traffic, as this is the main gateway to Moreton Island. With views facing west, Reef Point makes a stunning place to view romantic sunsets.
This is an ideal spot for kids to have fun in a playground over looking the sea. There are plenty of under cover picnic tables, free barbeques and the best view from a swing in Brisbane - gazing out across the Glasshouse Mountains.
The park has a small sandy beach covered with interesting red pebbles and at low tide, you can walk out on the "sandy reef" into the middle of nowhere. When we were there, we were lucky enough to see dolphins jumping in the water just off the point, so keep your eyes peeled.
Perfectly located, under shady trees with tables outdoors or indoors, Reef Point Cafe is worth the trip. Food is sourced locally and made fresh to order. Their ice cream freezer is sure to be a hit with beach weary children and coffee and cake might just help parents make it through the afternoon. See a full review here.
You could sit for hours watching passers by and holiday makers at Reef Point. Moreton Bay Cycleway glides right past, leading all the way (30 kms) to Brisbane and the shallow water is definitely a popular venue for dogs to stretch their legs, splash around and chase sticks. Pottering about Reef Point is a fun way to spend a lazy summer day.
