Picnic under the Moreton Bay figs at Wellington Point
Enjoy our beautiful bay
Bordered by water on both sides and with views across Moreton Bay out to the islands, it's no surprise that Wellington Point is known year-round as a great spot for the family for fishing, boating and a wide range of water sports.
The picturesque Wellington Point Reserve is a fantastic venue to watch the lights brighten over Brisbane as daylight fades, to picnic, enjoy the sun or just relax with a good book in the shade of the huge Moreton Bay figs. A trip to "Wello" is not complete without a walk at low tide across the sand bar to King Island, where beds of exposed seagrass come alive with crabs and remnants of the marine environment.
This beautiful bayside village boasts a vibrant town centre and there are regular festivals and twilight markets to enjoy and explore. Indeed, the dining precinct has many cafes and restaurants to satisfy all tastes.
