Redcliffe is known for its vacation-worthy weather, waterfront parks, beautiful beaches and a bustling cafe scene. Former Brisbane Broncos player Alex Glenn showed us how he spends his day in Moreton Bay Region with his family.
With wife Jemma and new born son Oakley settling in at home, Alex adventured north of his home town of Burleigh with Miller and Gisele for a day trip by the bay on the Redcliffe Peninsula.
Here's Moreton Bay, Alex's Way.
