Parks on the Peninsula
For a holiday or just a day out, try going over the Houghton Highway to the Redcliffe Peninsula. I was pleased to see part of the old Hornibrook Bridge is still there - albeit as a jetty.
First thing you see as you cross the bridge is the huge Pelican Park containing several play areas, a boat ramp and an Information Centre.
Bring a picnic or step across the road to cafes and a fish and chip shop.
This beautiful, well kept park will provide hours of entertainment..
Across the road from the park are a wide variety of eateries - from The Woody Point Village General Store, The Belvedere Hotel (Watersun Cafe, Jetty Bar and Steak and Crabhouse. Then another block of food providers: Marsala, Wild Wheat, Seafood Town, Feel Goodz, Stones on the Point.
