The town’s main highlight is the stunning stretch of surf beach, which is a family-friendly destination and recommended for people who love active beach lifestyles. Fishing has become a top pastime here, as bay and beach fishing are both catered to in areas that aren’t crowded.
Ocean Beach in Woorim is the nearest surf beach north of Brisbane, so it’s no surprise that it’s become a surfing hot spot over the years. However, Moreton Island protects Bribie Island from the southern swells, so waves are between .5 and 1 metre on average, though there are instances when they can be much larger. Swimming is generally safe when the waves are low but should be avoided when they exceed 1 metre.
For visitors looking for a rugged experience, check out the Bribie Island Caravan Park. It’s a terrific place to locate yourself as you explore the rest of the island; it offers a range of accommodations, including suites, cabins, villas, and campsites. There is on-site parking, and its facilities include a camp kitchen, amenities blocks, an outdoor pool, tennis court, and playground.
Keep in mind that if you intend to drive on the beach, you’ll need a permit and a four-wheel drive.
Woorim is one of the most beautiful beaches in the region, so don’t miss out on it.
