Bribie Island – a fun garden and awesome sunsets

Even though we intended catching up with some friends in Brisbane we didn’t actually want to stay there so Bribie Island was a logical and quieter choice. We booked into Bongaree Caravan Park just opposite Sandstone Point on the mainland. The first night one couple of our friends actually drove up from Brisbane and we ate at the Bowls Club next door to the caravan park. Had a lovely meal and a great chat.

The next day we drove around the island a bit, doing a walk at Woorim Beach on the east side and another walk in an area of White Patch. Here we saw the wonderful, but slightly wacky garden of John and Robyn Dehey. Yes, there some beautiful native plants but it’s John’s amazing sculpture collection that catches your eye. Here’s a few snaps Karen took. PS He trades under the name of Bugger Me Designs.

Much as we love gardens and this one was extremely novel you can’t go past a good sunset and Bribie Island offers some rippers across the water to the mainland with the Glasshouse Mountains in the distant background.

Here’s another from the following day.

Next time – A day trip to Brisbane.
