Shorncliffe Pier is 352 metres long
Shorncliffe Pier is Brisbane's longest timber pier and located along the very scenic Moreton Bay Scenic drive (follow the brown signs with the dugongs). The pier was closed in 2012 for renovations and reopened in 2016 bright and shiny and new.

If you want to spend the morning, day, afternoon by the sea, then this is the place to be. There are plenty of covered picnic tables and some BBQs for those planning the long haul. Fishing is very popular from the pier and we even saw a few people catch fish as we walked by. If fishing isn't quite your thing, simply sit on the benches situated along the jetty and stare at the sky, or the water, or the clouds, or Woody Point to your left, or the airport and Port of Brisbane to your right. If you stand at the end of the pier and look straight ahead, you'll feel like the only person on earth. There is a sizable shelter in the middle of the pier that is perfect for a shady sit down to contemplate your navel.

Not another soul on Earth
The pier is over 350 metres long so you could even strut the length a few times to get your 10 000 steps up! I couldn't think of a prettier place to do it.

If you don't want to picnic, there is a small cafe just up the hill that will provide all your caffeine and sweet needs.

How to get there: From Brisbane - take Sandgate Rd exit
From Sunshine Coast - Take M1 then Bracken Ridge Rd Exit

Recommendations: Walk all the way to the end of the pier, you won't be disappointed. We got there after lunch and there were plenty of tables, but not many carparks. Maybe get there early for parking. Take your fishing gear. You'll be bound to catch something. Sunscreen, bug spray and water a must. Good for prams and wheelchairs.

So, take off your Monday to Friday and visit Shorncliffe Pier where you will slip on your weekend and relax.
