Bribie Island 4×4 National Park Tours – day trips leaving Brisbane & Sunshine Coast.
Things to do on Bribie Island:
Day Trips with Brisbane & Sunshine Coast Pickup:
Bribie Island is the perfect location for a relaxing and enjoyable day trip off the beaten track. After picking you & your friends up from either Brisbane or The Sunshine Coast, we travel to Bribie Island and head to the East side of the island, reaching a suburb called Woorim.
There’s no better way to get to know each other than letting your hair down, along with the car windows and enjoying the gentle ocean breeze. This is your time to kick back and start relaxing in paradise.
Your expert guide will take you down the 4×4 track, hitting the surf side of Bribie, also known as Ocean Beach.
Once reaching the sand, this is where you might just get to spot local pods of dolphins frolicking together in the waves. At times (during season), there could even be a chance to spot whales moving up and down the coast line.
As we make our way up the beach towards Fort Bribie WWII Bunkers, you’ll likely spot many fascinating and beautiful native birds along the way. Feel free to ask your guide more details questions about them.
You’ll be amazed by the history of the great WWII forts built in the 1940’s and there will be plenty of time to explore them and the surrounding area. Feel free to take selfies, or ask your guide to take a group snap shot.
There is also time after a short walk around the forts to go for a swim & play on the beach (please bring a towel and/or wear swimming gear if you want to swim).
Along the journey up the beach, there will be several stops to view wildlife and the various lagoons within the Bribie Island National Park. After the tour of Fort Bribie, this is when the real adventure and fun begins when we head inland and hit the 4WD tracks.
The scenery of the Bribie Island National Park changes quite dramatically, from rugged and native Australian bush and wetlands, to open man-built forests and dirt roads, all in the blink of an eye. These areas of the island are only accessible in high clearance and low range 4WD’s with the appropriate permits.
With a stop for opportunity to see local kangaroos, goannas and other wildlife at Poverty Creek, you’ll enjoy the serenity and stunning views of the The Glass House Mountains amongst the horizon.
After the included picnic lunch and group photo in front of the stunning Pumicestone Passage, we continue along the 4WD track to an area known as White Patch.
Your tour ends by dropping you off at your original pick-up point.

Bribie is the most northern island in Moreton Bay, Queensland with one third of the island being protected as National Park. Bribie remains a hidden gem, only 45 minutes drive from Brisbane Airport.
Boasting over 30km of pristine beach, it is one of the world’s largest sand islands and is home to over 350 different species of birds and countless other wildlife including kangaroos, Eagles, turtles, dolphins, dugongs, dingos and goannas, just to name a few.
The 4WD beach entrance is located at 8th Avenue on the Eastern side of Bribie Island, a suburb called Woorim with Kilometres of drivable beach, it boasts beautiful panoramic coastal views all the way from the Port of Brisbane, over to Moreton Island and all the way up to Caloundra on the Sunshine Coast.
It is a popular camping and 4WD destination. With over 55km2 of National park running off the beach
Bribie Island hosts 4 semi-tidal lagoons. Fresh water creek, Norfolk lagoon, Mermaid lagoon & Welsby lagoon. The water in each lagoon appears golden-brown in colour. This is due to the tea-tree plants that populate the area and that have naturally stained the water over time.
When these lagoons finally break open, it is quite the sight as these golden-brown waters spill over and rush down to the crystal blue ocean water. This makes quite an exciting 4WD experience when crossing from one side of the break to the other.
There are 11 bunkers located along the northern end of Bribie Island surf beach, dubbed “Fort Bribie”. These fortifications were built between 1939 and 1943 as part of the South East Queensland military defence, during World War II.
They were also used to provide artillery training for Australian soldiers. Legend has it there was also an underground hospital constructed around this time that has since been covered over and hidden.
Poverty Creek is located on the western side of Bribie Island, with an abundance of iconic Australian wildlife that makes its way to this part of the island. You may just spot a kangaroo or Goanna while you are here. This is also a good opportunity to enjoy the serenity and the stunning views of The Glass House Mountains.
