My brother and his young family camped here for two nights. There was no ocean view but that of the bush. The water was only about a 2 minute walk but it was the passage and more just a fishing area and had a pretty average looking beach which only a hardcore swimming would consider entering.
Fourwheel drives would be needed to get through the many kilometres of sand leading from the White Patch ranger station to the campsite. I was quite disappointed with the drive there as there was just a lot of pine trees on either side - not overly Aussie but the campground was cute and relaxing to have breaky at (I definitely didn't sleep there). Lots of sandflies, etc. Relatively busy so definitely book in as my brother did. No showers but quite adequate toilets.
Bribie Island has several little communities and the one we stayed at was called Bongaree and was situated on the southern tip facing toward the mainland. Woorim was nearby and facing the ocean. It looked to have similar shops and the like.
More specifically focussing on Placid Waters now... in a great location with many food shops nearby. Basic but adequate and clean apartments (ours was two bedroom but only one bathroom). Laundry facilities in room and undercover key access parking. The pool was really lovely and situated so that mum's and dad's could sit on the balcony and watch the kids in the water.
Would stay here again.
Great pool, doesn't really have ocean views to write home about.
Our stay at the Beachmere Caravan park was enjoyable!
It should be even better now, as they were upgrading the grounds and the amenities.
Located one street back from the Beach, and right next door to a lovely playground, and the Bowls club for good meals, there wasn't anything else we wanted. Shops were a very short walk away.
The park has lawned sites, and is not over large. There was the Amenities block with a Laundry/washing machines, and plenty of clothes lines, FREE BBQ, individual sullage connection, mains water, LPG gas was available, and there is a public phone nearby.
In a great area for access to the Beach to go walking.
Even some Backpackers found it!
Great Park! Great Location! Popular at holiday times!
Bribie Island, a lovely getaway for that beachside Holiday, and only 70kms from Brisbane.
Bongaree Caravan Park is located opposite Pumicestone Passage on the calm side of the island. They have a range of holiday accommodation including caravan and tent sites, fully self contained holiday villas and cottages.
We stayed in our Caravan, have stayed here on several occassions. The Toilets/Showers are old, but clean. Laundry and wash lines, and a big plus for when on holidays, is the FREE BOOK EXCHANGE!
Just across the road, is the Beach, Boat ramp, a nice walkway / bikeway, and Jetty for fishing.
The calm waters make it a safe swimming area for young and old. For all those surfers, then head to the patrolled surf beach located just 5 mins drive to the other side of the island at Woorim.
We enjoy sitting outside and taking in the great views of Pumicestone Passage, with the Glasshouse Mountains to the north and across Moreton Bay to Redcliffe in the south. We have often see Dolphins swimming in the passage.
The General store sells bait, tackle, ice, gas, drinks, and more. Four Wheel Drive Beach Permits are available at the office
Located a short walk away is the Bowls club next door, another one a little further on and across the road, and the RSL Club nearby. We have been to all, they all are reasonably priced and all the meals have been good.
Check out the website for details on prices.
Take the Bribie Island / Caboolture exit from the Bruce highway.
Stay on the Bribie Island Rd. until you cross the bridge onto the island.
At the first roundabout as you come off the bridge follow it around doing almost a u-turn and then turn left into Welsby Pde.
Follow Welsby pde along until you reach the park - it's right opposite the boat ramp.
I havent actually stayed here before but know a few people that have and they said that it was really nice accommodation.
Yes they have a pool and a Golf Course :)
