Buckley’s Hole Conservation Park is also a terrific fishing destination. Local folklore has it that a fisherman named Buckley was often fishing on a site where the lagoon is currently located. Throughout the decades, the park’s landscape has continued to evolve, which has made it an evolutionary hotspot -especially for fish in the waterhole. Thankfully, despite its popularity as a fishing destination, it doesn’t suffer from overfishing.
Aside from these, the park is an excellent place for a picnic. Bring your own food or snacks since there are no vendors in the immediate area. Bushwalking is also fantastic here, primarily because it’s uncommon to bump into other visitors. A walking path can be accessed from the Boulevard by the sign.
The walk can take you to the beach area, passing through South Point, Red Beach, and Tully. The entire walk will take around an hour and a half. It’s still considered pristine and untouched, so be sure to respect the environment, pick up after your rubbish, and leave your pets at home during your visit.
Buckley’s Hole Conservation Park is a unique, hidden gem in Bribie Island that shouldn’t be missed during your visit.
