When you want to escape, head by the bay to unwind
Being a newbie to Brisbane, I have tried to get out and about nearly every weekend to see a new side of the city. So I took a solo road trip up the north coast a few weeks ago to see what the Redcliffe fuss was all about. And what a beautiful part of the Brisbane area it is.

I started in Scarborough and was a little surprised by what I saw - Newport Marina and houses dotted along the canals that wind in and out of the suburb. What a nice place to live.

Then I began my drive along the coast - stopping at Redcliffe to soak up the sun; driving through Margate and then pulling up at Woody Point for lunch at the jetty. This was my favourite spot and if I had had more time I would have loved to go for a walk all along the coast. You are spoilt for choice for lunch options too in each place: fish and chip shops, cafes, pubs, delis and restaurants galore.

Next you can get onto the Houghton Highway and make your way through the quaint seaside towns of Sandgate and Brighton before heading onto the Gateway Motorway and back into the city and beyond.

So next time you are looking to escape for the weekend, you don't have to go far to sit along the water's edge and forget about all of your worries.

We discovered the cutest cafe at Scarborough a few weeks ago. Keep your eyes peeled for the Sugar Deli... What a find! I wish it was in Manly!!!
