MORETON BAY CYCLEWAY

Our home at Wynnum is about 200 metres from the mid-point of the Moreton Bay Cycleway (MBC), which will eventually connect 150 kilometres of the Brisbane coastline by user-friendly and scenic cycle paths, stretching from Bribie Island in the north across the Gateway Bridge to Redland Bay in the south. When completed, it will become the longest cycleway on the Eastern coast of Australia.

From our home there are a number of short, medium and long rides available using some parts of the MBC, and ranging from very gentle to challenging – something for everyone! Nearby attractions include a bird hide beside one of the largest migratory bird colonies in the Southern Hemisphere; a Mangrove Boardwalk and marine reserve extending into Moreton Bay; a six kilometre cycle path along the unobscured waters of Moreton Bay; one of the largest open-air, free public wading pools in Australia; numerous parks and playgrounds; and a variety of coffee shops and restaurants along the way. As well as being ideal cycling paths, the local area is very well known and patronised as a walker’s delight.

REDLANDS CYCLING OPTIONS

For those wanting to roam farther from home base, the Redlands area, our close-by neighbouring city, provides a great variety of possible riding options. Some of these options, such as cycling to Wellington Point and walking out to the exposed King Island at low tide, can be started and finished from home base, or, alternatively, a one-way trip could be arranged so that more time could be spent exploring the local area.

This trip lends itself very well to using the local train service, as home base is five minutes’ walk from the nearest station, and many of the Redlands rides can start and end at Cleveland Station. The Redlands Cycle Paths maps show a number of possibilities for rides in this area, all of which contain spectacular bush and/or bay scenery along the way.

Another Redlands cycle option is a visit to the Sirromet Winery – one of Queensland’s largest and best-known wineries, and a winner of a number of overseas and national awards in recent times. Sirromet conducts wine tastings, serves lunch and dinner, and has cellar door sales.

Depending on where you leave from (e.g. from home base or from Cleveland or Ormiston railway stations), and when you commence with major tourist destinations such as your trip to Sirromet, it could be a one-way (pick up at end of day), or two-way trip (cycle both ways – about 60 kilometres).
