King Island Wellington Point
The 2km walk to King Island Wellington Point is a must do activity. Wellington Point is located in the Redlands. Travelling from Brisbane’s CBD is under 40 minutes at off-peak times. The walk is suitable for all ages however I recommend shoes for the little ones at the shells along the beach can be quite sharp on soft feet.
King Island Wellington Point is reserved as a conversation area. As you arrive you can hear the birds chirping throughout the mangrove trees. You can experience solitude even among other people walking to the island as the noise of the traffic and suburbia is left behind.
You can read about the history of King Island on the plaques provided and walk to the very end where the view of the coast is lengthy. For safety reasons its important to set off at the lowest tide with children and little legs get tired. You want to make it back before the tides returns.
When you return from King Island you can have a bite to eat at the local Cafe’s on offer or enjoy a packed lunch at the playground. The main playground has recently been refurbished and the huge climbing trees have been reinforced.
Closer to the Jetty there are other picnic areas you can take advantage of if you prefer more privacy.
