Weekend At Bribie Island

 Last weekend Hubby and l were planning on having a weekend away in Caloundra on the Sunshine Coast, Queensland, but at the last minute son number three came along to view a car he was interested in which was in Brisbane, so he had to come along on our weekend away as it is about 2 hours away and we had no intention of driving him home again.....then leaving on our weekend.

It rained from the time we hit the outskirts of Brisbane on the north side. Didn't let up so we decide to have lunch at Redcliffe then on to Bribie Island deciding it was not worth going any further due to the weather forming off the coast....which was a very good call as it so happened.

We stayed in this very nice house on the canal in Pacific Habour on Bribie Island. We spent our time looking around the Island and were impressed as to what they have to offer...Deep sea fishing, 4 wheel driving, Surf beach and at least two other family beaches, golf courses and most of the Island is a National Park.

Even though the weather was not the best we still enjoyed our time away.


  1. Looks like a gorgeous house you got to stay in, too! I have a case of wanderlust and would love to go anywhere right now. ;)

  2. Heavy rain here in the south-east today. Sunny Queensland has disappeared for at least the next 48 hours. The house you stayed in looks really nice. Glad you had a great time despite the showers. Hugs......

  3. sounds like a lovely holiday Maddy,glad you enjoyed it.xx

  4. It's always nice to get away, even if it is raining. That's a good excuse to sit under the verandah and stitch!

  5. The place you stayed at looks to be very relaxing. It is good to get away even if the weather is not perfect
