Treat your furbaby to a day at the beach
The quiet, convenient yet stunning Bribie Island has many wonderful beaches, each with its own quirks and attractions. The biggest drawcard for Woorim Beach, besides its endless amount of super soft white sand, is that it is dog-friendly. On any given day, all year round, the dogs could outnumber the fishermen trying their luck in this popular fishing spot.

Located on the South-East corner of the island, Woorim Beach and Skirmish Point offer a fantastic opportunity for kilometres of beach walking. Because it is located on the oceanside of the island, this stretch of coast is sometimes surfable. The beach is patrolled during peak times when the small number of tourists come to visit the island. However, the strong currents and sometimes high winds make this a beach for experienced swimmers. Kitesurfers find the reasonably shallow waters and sometimes high winds a lot of fun as they glide over the surface of the ocean.

A fantastic family day out

It is easy to navigate around the area of Woorim Beach, if you follow the oceanfront, there are numerous places to park. To get to the dog beach, make sure you park at the southern end of the beach. You will find some roadside parking, where there is BBQ facilities, picnic tables, a small playground, a shower and fresh water for your furry friend. Alternatively, you can keep driving just 50 metres up the road where you will come across an unsealed access road to the beach, suitable for 2WD vehicles.

Looking towards Skirmish Point

If you don't feel like cooking your own BBQ, there are plenty of cafes and restaurants all over Bribie Island. To get here, take the M1 from either direction, exiting onto Bribie Island Road. Follow this until the second roundabout, where you turn right onto Goodwin Drive, which turns into First Avenue. This will take you into the heart of Woorim, right on the beach. To head to the dog beach, turn right.
