Of an early morning from Red Beach you can often see dolphins catching their breakfast meal close to the shore. Of an afternoon you will be delighted to watch the sun set from one of the top spots in Moreton Bay Region. Watch day turn to night as the sun dips below the horizon.
Dogs may be exercised on a leash on the foreshore between Red Beach access off Tully Street, Bongaree, heading east along the beach for a distance of about 700 metres. At this point there is signage installed indicating the end of the on-leash area and the commencement of the off-leash area.

From the car park off Tully Street, Bongaree, you can reach Red Beach by following a vegetation-shrouded path to the surf-side stretch of sandy shores. With the vine-covered dunes spanning a few kilometres, Red Beach eventually meets up with Woody Bay making for a great scenic walk for dog owners (best done at low tide).
There are no amenities at Red Beach so please be mindful of your waste and always clean up after your furry little friend. Please also be considerate and respect of the surrounds and ensure your pooch is always on a leash.
Please note that the foreshore area between Red Beach access off Tully Street Bongaree and the carpark at the southern end of South Esplanade Bongaree is a dog prohibited area.
The name Buckley’s Hole is given both to the Conservation Park and the local lagoon, named so after a local fisherman who preferred an area of deeper water directly offshore from the lagoon. The landscape of Buckley’s Hole Conservation Park is now well-known for different species of fish and diverse bait while the lagoon flourishes with waterfowl, seeing Black Swans breeding there annually.
The park can be accessed from The Boulevard, where there is a hide that overlooks the lagoon or via the track that runs from Tully Street to Red Beach.
