Red Beach, Bribie Island, Brisbane
Red Beach truly is one of the nicest beaches you'll find near Brisbane. It's located just an hour from the city at Bribie Island - a place that isn't really 'known' as a beachside spot - but you'll be pleasantly surprised when you go there. Just look at how crystal clear that water is!
It's the perfect spot to visit early on weekends in spring and summer, and they have a great dog off-leash section.
It really is such a special little beach getaway that truly feels like you've visited an island just north of Brisbane.
