Experience Moreton Bay walks & trails

Recharge your batteries and enjoy the great outdoors with one (or more) of these fantastic relatively undiscovered Moreton Bay Brisbane walking trails!

Cottonwood Walk and Heritage Trail, Deception Bay:
This level walk will appeal to nature and history lovers.

You can either opt for the shorter 1.5km Cottonwood Walk or do the whole 4km Deception Bay Heritage Trail.

This lovely level stroll through a culturally and historically significant area takes you along the esplanade and through the parklands to Deception Bay’s historic bathing pools, dog park and past the wetlands in the south.

Enjoy BBQ facilities, spot a dolphin, encounter sites of historical and cultural significance or just enjoy this beautiful region with its parks and kids playgrounds.

Conservation Park is just under 20 minute’s drive from your accommodation at Scarborough Beach Resort.

For more information, go to Cottonwood Walk & Heritage Trail.

Redcliffe Convict Trail:
History buffs won’t want to miss out on this great local trail at Redcliffe, which is just a short 5 minute drive from Scarborough Beach Resort.

With a leisurely length of 1.7 km, this trail offers eight informative stops and will take you about 1 hour to complete.

Walk in the footsteps of the government officials, soldiers and convicts who arrived at the Redcliffe Peninsula in September 1824 with orders to build Moreton Bay’s first penal settlement. Unfortunately conditions proved too difficult and 8 months later they relocated to Brisbane River, right where the Brisbane City is located.

To check out the trail go to: Redcliffe Convict Trail.

Redcliffe Foreshore Public Arts Trail:
This self-guided and easy walk along the foreshore showcases the people and history of the Moreton Bay Region through a collection of public art works including:

Stop 1 – Anzac Place Memorial: The Cenotaph of Remembrance
Stop 2 – Vessels
Stop 3 – Story Poles
Stop 4 – After the Flood
Stop 5 – OPTO
Stop 6 – Apparatus for Non-destructive Transmission of Biological Visualisation.
Find out more about each of these art works and the walk at Redcliffe Foreshore Public Arts Trail.

Redcliffe is just a short 5 minute drive from Scarborough Beach Resort.

Lake Eden Trail:
The Lake Eden trail is part of the council’s 10,000 steps program.

At a level 1.676 kilometres it’s not going to get you quite up to 10,000 but, hey, it’s a start.

This one is perfect for families as it is totally flat and has a picnic ground.

The walk winds its way around the man-made lake, which is filled with bird life. The kids will have heaps of fun identifying the different species that come to the lake – water fowl, ducks and a pair of black swans are residents. If the kids are lucky they might even spot water dragons sunning themselves.

Lake Eden is approximately a 15 minute drive from your accommodation at Scarborough Beach Resort.

Stay at Scarborough Beach Resort, a perfect launching pad from which to experience these fabulous walks. Offering a selection of 1, 2 and 3 bedroom fully-self contained holiday apartments and onsite facilities you can relax in the swimming lap pool, gym and a large heated spa after you’re day walking the Moreton Bay Region trails!
