Lifestyle

It's no surprise that Wellington Point itself is known year-round as a great spot for the family for fishing, boating, barbecues and a wide range of water sports. Picturesque Wellington Point Reserve is a fantastic place 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.

Wellington Point Village’s dining precinct is highly regarded, with many cafes and restaurants to satisfy all tastes.

Shopping

Wellington Point Village can provide just about everything you need. Just up the road, Birkdale Gardens and Birkdale Fair shopping centres offer a wider variety, with the larger business and shopping precinct at Capalaba.
