After your whale watching tour, why not make a day of it and explore Redcliffe? Our tours start at 10 am and finish at 2:30 pm, so you’ll have plenty of time to find other things to do around the beautiful Redcliffe peninsula. Read on to find out how you can fill your day!
Redcliffe has plenty of things to see and do, so it’ll be easy to spend a few hours relaxing. After your whale watching tour has ended, why not follow with a lovely coastal walk or drive? The Redcliffe Coastal Walk is a scenic and sometimes hilly promenade that stretches from the Woody Point Jetty to Redcliffe Jetty, where our whale tours end. Take in the pretty Margate foreshore with its beautiful art deco and Spanish mission bathing pavilions, or discover the Gayundah Wreck. There are also plenty of beaches and the Settlement Cove Lagoon if you’d like to take a dip.
If your whale watching tour is on a Sunday, the Redcliffe Jetty Markets are incredibly popular and well worth a look. They sell everything from arts and crafts to produce and clothing, Australian and international food, plants, jewellery and more!
The Bee Gees Way runs between Sutton Street and Redcliffe Parade right near the Redcliffe Jetty, so it is also a convenient and interesting stopping point. The walkway is a photographic gallery in honour of the Bee Gees and depicts their lives and work. The Redcliffe Picture Palace is just a short walk away, where you can take in films from pre-1961 with tea and biscuits.
The cute, quirky arcade called Conimos just opposite Redcliffe Jetty offers a range of food options for everyone. If you’re after something sweet, Variety Treats is an old fashioned ice cream parlour that’s worth a visit. Next door at Workshop Co. is some of the best coffee in all of Redcliffe, as well as light breakfasts and lunches. Teddies ‘n Sweets English Tea shop is a fun addition to your trip to Redcliffe, especially for the kids.
If you’re after something more filling and your tour is on Thursday through Saturday, give Israeli restaurant Pilpel a try. Redcliffe’s best kept secret has no menu, but instead offers a delicious multi-course feast brought right to your table.
By far the most popular choice though is Morgan’s Seafood Market and Takeaway. With amazing fresh seafood and delicious hot chips, Morgan’s has a stellar reputation. Check it out in Scarborough boat harbour. Be sure to stay for one of the best sunsets you’ll find in South East Queensland!
