Pumicestone National Park is a low-lying area, so while these aren’t ideal for bushwalking and hiking, passive tourist activities such as bird watching and scenic viewing are allowed. The park is also relatively recent, as the state government gave it a national park status just in 2010. For visitors looking for exploration and outdoor activities in the area, nearby Bribie Island is highly recommended.
Bribie Island is a well-loved holiday destination; it boasts of a carefree and laid-back coastal community with many beautiful swimming and surfing beaches. For these reasons, it has become a popular island escape amongst visitors who enjoy nature and water sports. Pumicestone Passage is a major highlight; families can take a canoe out to explore the waters or kayak, pump for yabbies, kitesurfing or windsurfing, or watch the sunset.
Check out the Bribie Island Seaside Museum to learn about the fascinating history of Bribie. Find out more about Matthew Flinders and his contributions to the island, and get to know Ian Fairweather, an amazingly talented reclusive artist. If you love a good adrenaline rush, nothing beats doing a tandem skydive jump on the island.
Pumicestone National Park is just one of many fun and relaxing activities you can do in this area. Bring along the family and get ready for a memorable holiday.
