Jetty 2 Jetty Fun Run

When: Sunday 19 July, 2020
Where: Start and finish at Pelican Park, Clontarf

Put on your running shoes now to get race-fit for the Moreton Bay Region’s most popular fun run.

Jetty 2 Jetty Fun Run has a distance for everyone and caters to all abilities. Anyone can do it; age is no obstacle with bubs in strollers to seniors aged 80+ in the running (or walking) for a finisher’s medallion.

You can choose from a 3km, 5km, 10km or 21km loop that follows the scenic Redcliffe Peninsula. Families with young children can enjoy the 3km and 5km events, which have no age restrictions.

The course along the waterfront extends as far as Scarborough for the 21km runners, who kick off the staggered event from Pelican Park, Clontarf, at 6.00am. The 3km fun run/walk punters are the last to start at 8.30am.

This year the event is raising funds for Chameleon Housing, with a portion of every entry fee donated directly to this important cause.

The Kindred Healthy Living Expo is back again this year with plenty to see and do including health services, active wear, footwear, gyms, supplements and personal training groups.

Costco and IKEA, then chill out at the beach

Ever thought about combining a shopping expedition with a mini break?

A weekend (or even weeknight) at the beach is the perfect way to de-stress before, during or after searching for your dream kitchen at IKEA or stocking up on bulk household items at Costco.

Costco North Lakes and IKEA North Lakes are about 15 kilometres (that’s about a 20-minute drive) to the calm sandy beaches of Scarborough on the Redcliffe Peninsula.

After a day spent dragging the kids from pillar to post in the quest to find a comfy couch or going through the exhausting process of shopping for life’s necessities, a night at a family- friendly resort directly opposite the beach is the ideal solution to shopping burn-out.

If you’re coming from out of town, it makes perfect sense to end a hectic day with a mindful stroll along the beach followed by a spa and sauna at Scarborough Beach Resort.

If retail therapy is your thing, there’s the option of heading back along the Bruce the next day for another dose. Unless, that is, you decide to linger longer!

Woody Point & The Gayundah Shipwreck

On the southern end of the Redcliffe Peninsula and on the opposite point to Scarborough is Woody Point. Only a short driving or cyling distance of 7km it is worth a visit during your stay at Scarborough.

Woody Point is a nice relaxed seaside village with two historic hotels (The Palace where the Bee Gees started and the award winning Belvedere), charming eateries, seaside arts and craft shops.

Woody Point is mostly renowned historically for being the landing spot of Matthew Flinders in 1799,and is the final resting place of the HMQS Gayundah wreck which first took to the water in 1885 before being finally decommissioned in 1958.

Up until the end of World War I she was used as a mine sweeper and sea tender ship and by 1919 had been decommissioned, sold to civilians and was thereby stripped and demoted to a gravel barge.

By 1958 she was retired and towed to the base of the cliffs at Woody Point where she has since acted as a breakwater, protecting the shore not from the enemy but from erosion.
