Enjoy the beachfront
On a hot steamy day, the Wynnum Waterfront is a great place to visit and cool down. There's plenty to do and it is all free.

Walk the Jetty

Put on some sunscreen and a hat when walking on the jetty, it pays to be SunSmart. It's a lovely walk, especially at high tide, and you can sit and admire the scenery at the end of the jetty.

The Wading Pool

This is a heritage-listed place created in 1932, and while it has cement walls, it has a sandy bottom and is great for all ages to cool down. Again, a hat and sunscreen are recommended.

Whale Park

Now, this is a great space for children. There's plenty to do around this area, but the most popular is running in and out of the spouting water!

Around the area, there is seating, which is often full, so it is a good idea to take a picnic rug or your own chairs. It is mostly shaded, and there are many exercise options around the park.

Pandanus Beach

This beach is popular for folk who want a swim - though it is mostly shallow, except at high tide. But it is a lovely beach and some folk love like to picnic on the sand too. Check it out.

History of the Quandamooka People

The Quandamooka people lived south of the Brisbane River down to Cleveland, and their story is told on this board, near the totem poles.

You can bring your own food, or there are plenty of food venues nearby, and often food trucks are located nearby. If you are a cyclist there are paths right along the waterfront - so you can enjoy a very long ride in this beautiful area.
