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.
