Where To Go - MainlandAll roads lead to the Bay in the Redlands, passing through a diverse landscape that ranges from glistening beaches to mountain tops, and offers plenty to see and do.
The Redlands offers a range of activities catering to individuals, couples and families, from bay cruises and island-hopping, to guided heritage tours and cultural walks. World-class surf beaches, pristine national parks, walking trails and historic buildings can all be found in the Redlands.

The Redlands and Moreton Bay coastline is an ideal place for those wanting to get some fresh air and participate in a range of exciting - or relaxing - outdoor activities. Sail or swim in the sheltered waters, fish off the jetties or islands, bushwalk in environmental reserves such as Point Halloran Conservation Reserve or Venmans Bushland National Park, or walk through the gardens of the Redland's nurseries and display gardens and have a bite to eat in one of their cafes or tea gardens.
The Redlands has a number of parks, which are great for family picnics, relaxing under a tree with a book or playing a game of cricket. The Redlands offers a wide range of accommodation to suit every traveller, with a choice of hotels, motels, units, caravan parks, charming bed and breakfasts, cottages and home stays.
