Moreton Bay My Way with Alex Glenn

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.

Filled with putt-putt, top-notch seafood eats and a swim at Sutton's Beach, they hope to inspire other day trippers to make the most of Redcliffe and it's surrounds.

Here's Moreton Bay, Alex's Way.


Want to check it out for yourself? Follow the itinerary below.



Redcliffe Jetty

If you're starting your journey from Brisbane, navigate your way following the M1, State Route 26 and across the iconic Houghton Highway. Head for Redcliffe Jetty where you will begin your day of adventures.

Grab a cup of coffee from one of the cafe's along Redcliffe Parade before enjoying a stroll along Redcliffe Jetty.

Pack the scooters, bikes or rollerblades and ride along the waterfront pathway (Moreton Bay Cycle Way) that winds north and south of the landmark.



Undersea Putt & Play

Make your way two minutes up the road to Undersea Putt & Play and putt your way through the magical, ocean inspired course complete with prehistoric fish, great white sharks, whales, turtles, whirlpools, stingrays and crocodiles. This 18 hole course boasts varying degrees of difficulty complete with ramps, tunnels and bridges. Who doesn’t love a little bit of friendly competition right?

18 holes complete but craving more fun? Enjoy over 30 (very addictive) arcade games from old school favourites like air hockey and the claw machine to Queensland’s one and only Bust-A-Move Frenzy game.



Tuck into fresher than fresh seafood at Morgan's

Worked up an appetite putting over the ocean floor? Head to Morgan's Seafood and taste the magic of Moreton Bay while enjoying a view over the beautiful Scarborough Marina.

If there is one thing we're proud of here in Moreton Bay Region, it's our seafood. Taste-test your first Moreton Bay bug, enjoy a fresh crab, shuck your own oysters or order take away fish and chips - Morgan's seafood is second-to-none. Sourced straight from the trawlers and direct from the fisherman there's something for all members of the family.

If you're a sweet tooth and need something to cleanse your pallet after your seafood feast be sure to grab an ice cream from their ice cream kiosk!



Cool off at Sutton's Beach

Next up is a dip in the water at Sutton’s Beach. It is a downright pleasant, relaxing, and beautiful spot to swim. The patrolled beach is perfect for little ones or swimmers after a gentle paddle. The small waves provide a fun splash for kids and a refreshing dip for all ages with the stunning backdrop of Moreton Island.

With free parking, ample grass areas for picnics, free BBQ’s and winding bike tracks with views for miles. There are picnic tables and amenities available making this one of Redcliffe’s most popular weekend destinations.
