I love taking the kids to Bribie Island, you have the opportunity to stay on the leeward side and have a play and a swim in Pumicestone Passage or you can head over to the windward side and get the delights of Woorim Beach. It is much less crowded than the Sunshine or Gold Coasts and boasts beautiful white sounds and a nice calm beach. At times it can get quite windy but it is still a nice place to laze away a morning or afternoon. It is also an awesome spot collecting pippies if you go on the right tide you can easily fill a bucket full and have a great afternoon snack or dinner and also because of this there are plenty of shells on the beach for the kids to collect. When you have had your fill of playing on the beach and in the water you can head to any of the nearby cafes and restaurants or head back towards Sandstone Point Hotel for a great afternoon there. It is one of my favourite beaches to go to and I am able to reach it within an hour from my door.
