Welcome to Redcliffe
As the site of Queensland’s first European settlement (1824), the Redcliffe Peninsula, jutting into Moreton Bay about 35km north of central Brisbane, talks up its historical credentials. In reality, there are not a whole lot of historic relics to see here. Locals focus squarely on maintaining a relaxed pace of life and a laid-back, beachy suburban vibe permeates the shoreline and backstreets. The area has plenty of unpolished fish-and-chip joints and calm beaches that are right up kids' alleys.
Redcliffe is also the childhood home of the brothers Gibb – Barry, Robin and Maurice. Better known as the Bee Gees, the trio is honoured with an interactive, eponymous laneway.
