Redcliffe Shire; 31km to Brisbane.
Waterfront living, community lifestyle, parks and recreational facilities.
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 Woody Point has sea views on one side of its rocky point and beautiful parks on the other. Given its seaside location, Woody Point is naturally a popular spot for all things nautical. The suburb is home to a mix of weatherboard and low-set brick houses - many are ex-Housing Commission homes given Woody Point's working-class history. Contemporary units and apartments are appearing in the area as more and more people cotton on to Woody Point's many attributes.
North of Brisbane's CBD, the Redcliffe shire 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 the Redcliffe shire. Those undertaking tertiary education have access to a TAFE campus on Klinger Road.
