The Perfect Girls Weekend Ideas for a Relaxed Redcliffe Retreat

Get your girlfriends together and make your way to the beautiful Redcliffe Peninsula for a girls getaways weekend escape away from the city, the spouse and the kids. Relax, sleep-in, catch up, shop, laugh, eat and drink, whilst making new memories with the ladies that you rarely get to see outside of facetime and skype physically.

Where to stay for your Girls Weekend Brisbane Retreat

Don’t sit in a hotel room alone over the weekend, instead opt for spacious, 4 star self-serviced apartment accommodation just 400 meters from the Redcliffe Peninsula foreshore.

La Vida on Anzac, has comfortable and very affordable self-serviced 2 and 3 bedroom apartments, with ensuite, there is enough space to enjoy some pre-dinner drinks and nibbles while getting prepped for a fun Friday night ahead.

Once the makeup is on and you’re all looking ‘Absolutely Fabulous’, hit the town and take a short stroll down to the waterfront for all the local restaurants and bars along Redcliffe Parade.

Friday Nights on the Moreton Bay Foreshore

The best way to kick-start a weekend in Redcliffe is by enjoying a few drinks along with a delicious dinner overlooking the picturesque Moreton Bay.

The Komo’s eating venues offer everything from prime steak to fresh seafood, plus all the essentials for the ultimate girls weekend – decadent desserts and an extensive champagne, wine and beverage list.

Begin your Saturday with a Caffeine Hit

After all the Friday night action a caffeine fix and hearty breakfast will be to wake up and get you all refuelled and ready to embark on the next leg of your girls getaways weekend adventure.

The good news is you don’t need to walk too far on an empty stomach from La Vida on Anzac, as adjacent to the iconic Redcliffe Jetty is Redcliffe Coffee Club. You’ll be well satisfied chowing into a big breakfast, French toast with maple glazed peaches, or salmon and avo stack, amongst other tasty options. Not to mention the caffeinated beverage of your ‘morning after’ dreams. Check out their full breakfast menu.

Why not take the long way round to breakfast and spend a few extra minutes enjoying a morning walk around Settlement Cove Lagoon, breathing in fresh morning sea air.

Once breakfast is complete, it’s time to embark upon an experience unique to the bayside during the winter and spring months…

The Best Girls Weekend Ideas is out in the Bay

If you and your girlfriends are nature lovers, whale watching in the Moreton Bay waters during winter is an unmissable experience!

The best way to make sure you catch a glimpse of these majestic marine mammals is by getting out onto the water with Brisbane Whale Watching.

Boarding commences at 9:30am, so make sure you get up early enough for a rush-free, relaxing breakfast beforehand; most importantly – don’t forget to charge your phone and check the image memory space, as whale sightings are guaranteed, and you’ll be wanting to grab that ‘Whaley Selfie’ to show the kids when you get home!

You’ll enjoy a wonderful voyage complete with buffet lunch, taking in the views across the water to Moreton and Bribie Island, while keeping eyes peeled for the peaceful giants of the ocean.

Ladies' Luxe Escape: Savour & Sizzle with a Redcliffe Sunset Bayside Dinner

For a glamorous girls' weekend in Moreton Bay, indulge in a culinary journey at Tempest Seafood Restaurant & Teppanyaki Grill. Enjoy fresh, trawler-to-plate seafood and a thrilling teppanyaki experience where cooking becomes an exhibition.

Whether it's a seafood platter for two or a personalised teppanyaki feast, Tempest promises a delightful dining adventure perfect for making lasting memories with your girlfriends.

If you're feeling up to it, take the long way back to the apartment and experience Bee Gees Way by night.

Lazy Sunday on your Girls Weekend Brisbane North Redcliffe Retreat with Seaside Shopping

What could be better than waking up to laidback market shopping featuring food stalls and live entertainment a stone’s throw from your accommodation?

Picturesque market shopping with water views – that’s what!

The perfectly located Redcliffe Jetty Markets kicks off at 8am along the peninsula’s foreshore Anzac Parade parklands. These wonderful markets last into the early afternoon, so you and your girlfriends can peruse the stalls, enjoy music and try delicious ethnic foods at your leisure.

Wind your way through these unique stalls harbouring wares the ladies love, including jewellery, arts and crafts, handmade items, children’s clothing, homewares and exotic imports.

Relaxing and Rejuvenating Sunday afternoon in Float Therapy and Infrared Sauna

Infuse some girl time fun into your Redcliffe retreat with a pampering session at City Cave Float Therapy and Wellness Centre Margate.

You and your besties can spend an hour each floating effortlessly in a private Epsom salt pool (yes, not a small pod, a double bed sized pool). Let the warm water and zero-gravity environment melt away all the pre-weekend stress.

Afterwards, reunite in the warmth of the infrared sauna - a detoxifying experience that will leave you feeling radiant.

Truly elevate your relaxation with a personalised massage, whether it be deep tissue, a relaxing Swedish massage or a prenatal massage.

Musical Tribute to Top-Off your Redcliffe Ladies Only Getaway

Meander up Redcliffe Parade past the shops, markets and cafes to Bee Gees Way to finish your girls getaways retreat with a stroll down this tribute avenue emanating nostalgia.

This 70-metre laneway connecting the foreshore parade with Suttons Street was unveiled by Moreton Bay Regional Council in 2013.

Check out the 70 metre dedication mural and stop to take a photo with your girlfriends with the 1.7 metre life-sized bronze statue of these famous pop legends. The Bee Gees Barry Gibb inscribed the statue’s plaque himself!
