Community Welcomes RV’s – Moreton Bay (Queensland)

Look out for the ‘Community Welcomes Recreational Vehicles’ signage on your next trip and rest easy knowing that your destination is equipped to welcome you and your caravan, camper trailer, motorhome or campervan.

These towns have made a commitment to offer easily accessible long vehicle short term parking within the town centre and have clear directional signage to their local visitor information centre.

This month we are profiling Moreton Bay (Queensland).

Located between the beautiful beaches of the Sunshine Coast and Queensland’s capital city Brisbane, Moreton Bay Region is just a short drive from both offering the opportunity to take a short break or a real getaway.  Whether you are after the laidback bayside lifestyle, a world class events calendar or quirky hinterland villages, Moreton Bay has something for everyone.

Moreton Bay Region has over 10 art galleries and 20 museums, plus interactive historical walks, so there’s something to cater for everyone’s cultural palette.

If music is your thing make sure you stop by Bee Gee’s Way, a multi-media celebration that honours the world famous pop group located off Redcliffe Parade, Bee Gees way is a multi-media celebration of the Gibb brothers’ phenomenal career and their links to Redcliffe.

For those history buffs check out the Caboolture Historical Village, a massive collection of over 110000 historical items restored and displayed within more than 70 buildings in a pioneer village setting covering 12 acres, or Old Petrie Town, the Pine Rivers Heritage Museum that encourages visitors to explore the district’s historic character through the permanent and every changing special displays.  Every Sunday Old Petrie Town plays host to the Petrie Markets with stalls selling unique handicrafts, second hand books, fresh produce, and many other local goodies.

The region is also home to some incredible hikes, spectacular water holes, beautiful beaches and unmissable photo opportunities.  While there are too many to list some of our favourites include Rocky Hole in the granite filled gullies of Mount Mee, the Gayundah shipwreck at Woody Point, the D’Aguilar National Park and Iron Bark Gully located in the Samford Conservation Park.  There are also plenty of opportunities to get on the water with North Pine River, Lake Kurwongbah, Hays Inlet, Pumicestone Passage and Caboolture River perfect for kayaking and whale watching tours leaving from Redcliffe during the season.

Moreton Bay Region has a diverse and exciting range of festivals across the year.  Some of the highlights include the Woodford Folk Festival, the Redcliffe KiteFest, the Oyster Festival, the Abbey Medieval Festival, the Moreton Kids Festival, and the Redcliffe Festival of Sales.
