Stockland’s Promenade Rothwell is the perfect place to begin exploring Redcliffe’s picturesque beaches and soak in the natural beauty of Moreton Bay, with a choice of stunning walking and cycling trails at our community’s doorstep.

From the lakeside vistas of Newport to the towering Pine trees overlooking Scarborough Beach and on to the sun-soaked boardwalks of Margate, the Peninsula’s coastline offers some of the most spectacular walks and family-friendly outings in southeast Queensland.         

 

Whether exploring the region on foot or by bike, you can take advantage of the wide paths hugging the length of the shoreline and connecting an array of beaches and waterfront attractionaccessible directly from Promenade.  

 

Enjoy an ever-changing scenery, pause for a picnic or a swim with the family or simply while the day away in the sea breeze.    

 

When it comes to beaches, it is hard to go past Scarborough Beach for a family day out. Featuring walking paths, barbecue facilities, two playgrounds as well as gnarled old Cotton Trees that have doubled as climbing equipment for countless children over many years, it is the perfect spot for all ages.

 

Magnificent pine trees along the edge of the beach meanwhile offer a shady retreat for sleeping off a barbecue lunch.

 

Settlement Cove and Redcliffe Jetty are bayside landmarks and top destinations along the Peninsula’s network of walking and cycling paths. Settlement Cove, with its lagoon catering for swimmers of all ages, barbecue facilities, playground, toilets and showers, is ideally positioned adjacent to the shops of the Redcliffe CBD for a lazy weekend coffee or meal.

 

The jetty has a history stretching back to the late 1800s. Every Sunday the Redcliffe Jetty Markets draw residents and visitors from throughout the region to sample fresh produce, handmade goods and delicious food.            

 

One of the Peninsula’s most loved spots is Suttons Beach. A patrolled beach offering barbecue facilities, picnic tables and amenities along with a large grassed area, it is ideal for family get-togethers. A fenced fort-style playground is another option to keep youngsters entertained.

 

The scenic timber boardwalk of Margate Beach meanwhile offers fitness enthusiasts plenty of space to walk and exercise. A workout for the senses as well as the body, this location also allows you to enjoy the ambience that the broad expanse of beach brings, especially as the morning sun rises over the water.

 

The nearby Scotts Point swimming pavilion, built in the 1930s, offers an insight into a bygone era. This part of the beach also provides an excellent vantage point for watching windsurfers as they skim and dart across the surf.          

 

Another waterfront drawcard is Woody Point, a relaxed seaside village at the southern end of the Peninsula. Offering an abundance of places to picnic and wander, it is also historically significant as the final resting place of the Gayundah warship wreck, which has featured in thousands of holiday snaps and photos over many decades.   

 

Enjoy the lifestyle and convenience Promenade offers with house and land packages from $383,000.
