Yesterday I ventured to Redcliffe for the first time. This is the closest beach to us, although I think I would prefer to drive 20 minutes further and go to the Sunshine Coast which is known for it’s beautiful white sandy beaches. The stretch of sand was not very deep so I was fairly wary of Jed (my puppy) running back onto the road. There were also HEAPS of jelly fish washed onto the sand.
Despite this it still made for a nice walk. Redcliffe is known for it’s long pier on which many people fish, so being practically a tourist and looking for a walk, Jed and I walked the pier. What amazed me were the thousands of jelly fish in the water – they literally were 20 cm apart and covering the water around the end of the pier. They are such strange looking creatures!
I decided to have a coffee and review a nearby café, Banjo’s Bakery. Their table set up was very cute – little seedlings in coffee cups and this is what drew me to relax here. Unfortunately I didn’t get the opportunity to relax at their café as I was informed that dogs were not allowed to sit tied up to a pole next to the outdoor tables. So I ate my mini pie in a rush – it was average and got my coffee takeaway. The coffee was decent, on a whole I would rate it 7/10 (if I didn’t have a dog with me).
Jed and I walked across the road and I had my coffee by the water in the cutest council-provided-chairs I’ve ever seen (well done BCC!). It was a lovely outing if you’re looking for something reasonably close to Brisbane.
NB: Each Sunday from 8am-3pm there are the Redcliffe Jetty Markets – worth checking out!
