Commentary

The City of Redcliffe was Queensland's first settlement set amid Moreton, Bramble and Deception Bays and is now home to more than 50,000 residents.  The suburb of Clontarf is home to one of the southern hemisphere's longest bridges (at 2.8km long), first opened in 1935, and now only open to pedestrians. The bridge area is also home to a very healthy population of pelicans. Amongst Clontarf's residential area is widespread wetland, two schools, parks and walking and bike tracks. The suburb also has its own small beach, Bells Beach. North of Brisbane's CBD, Redcliffe is accessible via the Bruce Highway and the Gateway Arterial Road to the Port of Brisbane and the Brisbane domestic and international airports (only 20 minutes away).

 

A lingering concern among locals working in the Brisbane CBD is the lack of a rail link through to Redcliffe. Currently the line terminates at Brighton with no plans to extend across the Hornibrook Bridge into Redcliffe.  The suburb has a diverse range of both public and private business activities including tourism, manufacturing and light industry, retail and the fishing and seafood industry. The Redcliffe City Council has made a strong commitment to economic growth with recent initiatives including the construction of a new library and art gallery and the redevelopment of the Redcliffe hospital. The main commercial element is retail trade with most local residents commuting to Brisbane for work. Families are well catered for with several primary, high and special schools in Redcliffe and surrounding suburbs. Those undertaking tertiary education have access to a TAFE campus on Klinger Road.

Attractions and features
Clontarf is connected to Brisbane City, across Bramble Bay, by the Houghton Highway which is a 2.7 km long causeway that provides access to the southern tip of Redcliffe City, greatly decreasing the travel time between Redcliffe and Brisbane. The Houghton Highway replaced the Hornibrook Bridge which is now used by pedestrians, cyclists and for recreational fishing. Clontarf Beach and Bells Beach are two of the closest beaches to Brisbane City.  Pelican Park is known for its kite flying conditions, and a local industry has built around the sport. On weekends, many kites can be seen flying above Clontarf from the Hornibrook Bridge. During May, the Redcliffe Kite Club, based in Clontarf holds a two day kite event called Kitefest.

Industry
Clontarf's west hosts the largest industrial area in the Redcliffe area, and the area is a significant source of employment for the region. Many residents of Clontarf also commute to Brisbane daily for work. Most commuters travel by car, as there is no train line to Redcliffe. Clontarf is host to two adjacent medium-sized shopping centres, on the southern tip of the suburb. Most retail commerce in the suburb revolves around small business however, and there are many stand alone corner stores and other small businesses still in existence.

Education
Several educational institutions are located within Clontarf: Clontarf Beach State High School, which opened in 1964 and has over 1240 enrolled students, Clontarf Beach State School (1950) with approximately 350 students, and a private school, Grace Lutheran Primary School (1971), with approximately 430 students.

Public transport
Clontarf is served by several bus routes: Route 315, a limited-stops Monday-Friday service to Brisbane City; Route 693, an internal route within Redcliffe City, and Routes 690 and 695 to Sandgate railway station, an approximately 10-15 minute commute. All services are provided by Hornibrook Bus Lines.
