Red Beach to Woorim

Moreton Island National Park

This is a walk along the beach from the car park at Red Beach Bribie Island to the patrolled surf beach at Woorim. It's best to time your walk around low tide as at high tide the water comes right up to the trees in some places. Also, after significant rain there can be run-off from the island causing water courses that will need to be crossed - Not really a problem unless you don't want to get your feet wet. I've only marked the difficulty level as medium due to the un-certainty of the conditions, but generally it's a pretty easy walk if you stay on hard sand. If you're looking at a work-out, maybe walk on the soft sand and then the difficulty would definitely be harder. If you decide to do a return walk, you can pick up something to eat or drink at Woorim before heading back.

Very natural beach walk. A few impressive drift wood structures. Met the local "artist in residence".

Tough walk today. We decided to do this walk to avoid the 36 degree heat today. But it was close to high tide and the wind was strong. So on the way there we walked against the wind in soft sand and walked back wading through water. Never the less it’s always a beautiful walk - particularly around dusk.

Lovely walk. Easy to do

Late afternoon walk. We think we saw a shearwater diving for fish just off the beach today. We’ve never seen one here before.

Beautiful and changing scenery. We went early morning from Woorim to Red Beach and finished just shy of high tide. The area near Red Beach could be a problem when tide is high. We walked through water in this area but easily enough to do.

Plenty of driftwood, not a difficult walk.

Great walk along the beach, will be doing it again in summer!

We started the walk shortly after high tide but had no problem. Lots of dolphins real close to the shore.

Great place for a walk on such a hot day in Brisbane. We had a late afternoon walk and didn't make it all the way. The water just looked too good. Saw some dolphins.

Beautiful walk.... Took 2.5 hours at a walk/ faster type stroll

We only walked half way along and back today. There have been lots of 4WD's along the beach and the sand is pretty soft and chopped up. The tide was coming in and we didn't want to find ourselves walking back in too much loose sand. Great day for a walk though.

This is probably the first time we haven't spotted osprey at some point along this walk - maybe because of the time of day. It was early afternoon. As the tide was coming in some of the sand we had to walk on was a bit soft.

Used to live on Bribie as a young kid and we did this walk basically every weekend. Great for watching dolphins, turtles and Eddie the emu (who unfortunately was killed this year).
