Things to do
Step back in time with a visit to Old Petrie Town, a historic village set on 19 hectares of farmland. Wander along the streets of yesteryear, stopping by the working blacksmith or old-fashioned lolly shop. Take a ride on a horse and cart or cruise the city in a classic vintage car. If you’re in town on Sunday, head to the Old Petrie Town Market to find unique handicrafts, second-hand books and fresh local produce.
Keen for some fishing, boating, kayaking or SUPing? Strathpine's rivers, creeks and estuaries offer an array of opportunities to enjoy the great outdoors. The South Pine River is an excellent spot for reeling in bream, bass and flathead, while the North Pine River and Lake Samsonvale are perfect for a day of kayaking and boating.
Enjoy a picnic at Pine Rivers Park, which has plenty of shaded areas, walking tracks and barbecue facilities, as well as an impressive playground featuring a flying fox and 9-hole golf course. If you’re up for some exercise, ride or walk along Redcliffe Peninsula seaside trail, stretching all the way from Scarborough to Woody Point.
Spend a relaxing day discovering Moreton Bay and its beautiful beaches, like Settlement Cove and Suttons Beach. Take the ferry across to Moreton Island, an unspoilt paradise known for its pristine white-sand beaches, dolphin feeding, whale watching and magnificent dive sites, including the Tangalooma Wrecks.
Strathpine is a 45-minute drive or 30-minute train ride from Brisbane, with frequent trains running between Strathpine Railway Station, Brisbane, Redcliffe and Caboolture. Local buses serve Strathpine and the surrounding suburbs of Chermside, Toombul and Redcliffe.
