Beautiful Bribie Island

Visit 2 aboriginal sites, then explore more of the island, with a guide.

It is known that aborigines inhabited Australia between 50,000 to 55,000 years ago. Between 1940 and 1955, a Day of Mourning or Aborigines Day was held as a celebration of aboriginal culture. Now NAIDOC WEEK is held, not only by indigenous communities but by people of all walks of life. It celebrates the history, culture and achievements of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander People.

BONGAREE was born south of Sydney before the arrival of the First Fleet. Meeting Mathew Flinders the two sailed north spending two weeks exploring Moreton Bay, hence the name of the centre near the south of the island. Their first landing was at the south east point where there was a problem with the local tribes called, today, Skirmish Point.

After all these adventures you may like to enjoy a historic walk (2 available) or follow First Avenue to Woorim and the ‘surf’ beach.

Location: Community Arts Centre (good parking), 191 Sunderland Dr, Banksia Beach QLD 4507

Look forward to your company and bring your friends.
