Brisbane's bayside beaches are a world away from their Sunshine Coast and Gold Coast counterparts and more reminiscent of English coastal resorts.
At the base of the Shorncliffe cliffs is this enchanting little bay with grassy stretches shaded by cotton trees, rock pools, modern white picnic shelters, BBQs and a playground
A little strip of patrolled sand, Suttons Beach is one of the best swimming beaches on the peninsula
Of the string of little bay beaches that line the Redcliffe Peninsula, Scarborough on the far northern tip would have to be the prettiest.
Only a short hike from Redcliffe proper, Margate Beach is a charming English style ribbon of beach with calm surf ideal for paddling.
