Its humble beginnings date back to the 1880s when it was nothing more than a small fishing town known for its rich oyster beds. Throughout the decades, it has become one of the many well-loved tourist destinations on this side of the region, mainly because it’s an excellent jump-off point for visiting many sites nearby, such as Bribie island.

Donnybrook still attracts visitors who frequent it for the excellent fishing, laid-back ambience, good quality of living, and much more. A major attraction here is the Bullock Creek Conservation Park, which offers tranquil walks amongst lush vegetation. From here, one can get up close and personal with local wildlife, including frogs and birds that thrive in the mangroves and swamps.

While in Moreton Bay, don’t miss out on visiting Bongaree Beach, which is on Bribie Island. Families love coming here, and for a good reason; its small, gentle waves make it suitable for the young ones to freely swim in, while the foreshore is excellent for picnics and laying about under the sun. Bongaree Beach is also a terrific destination for water sports, including jet-skiing, fishing, and kayaking.

Meanwhile, Centenary Lakes in Caboolture is a haven for bird watchers. This picturesque space has become a choice venue for outdoor weddings and picnics, though the bridge network and pathways make exploring it on foot easy – even if you’re after a leisurely walk in nature.

For more adventure and places to feast your eyes on, check out Norfolk Lakes in Narangba. The parklands are equipped with playgrounds, several parks, and lush grounds that are perfect for picnics.

Donnybrook is one of the many exciting places you can visit in the Moreton Bay Region. Make sure you check out the range of accommodation choices nearby, including some holiday houses, caravan parks, bed and breakfasts, cottages and retreats.
