Need to get away from the big smoke? Take a day or seven to enjoy some peace and quiet at the perfect place – the quiet, small, town of Toorbul.
Tucked in just north of Brisbane and within the Moreton Bay Region, this is one of the best places along the Pumicestone Passage for fishing enthusiasts. Enjoy the tranquil sounds of water lapping and migratory sea birds.
You don’t need a boat to successfully fish here. Just throw a line out from a boat ramp, and you should have no problem getting a decent catch.
If you’re not into fishing, Toorbul Beach is also the perfect spot to go kayaking from. Just load a canoe or kayak, and paddle Pumicestone Passage a beautiful part pf the Moreton Bay Marine Park. Stop for a moment just to appreciate the natural splendour situated all around you.
When visiting with the family, watch the kids run onto the fresh and inviting beach as they play with beach balls, or start building some imaginative sandcastles. If somehow, after the wet and sandy fun, the kids still have more energy to burn, there’s lots of fun waiting at the playground opposite the Toorbul Store.
If you’re just after a scenic spot to relax in, bring a picnic rug and unpack some fresh goodies, or grab some from the Toorbul Store, which has everything you’ll need. From takeaway meals and coffee, to a cold beer, bait, and ice, you’re well looked after.
At the end of the day, when you see the sunset casting its orange glow over the Pumicestone Passage water, you’ll be yearning to stay. Please note it will be difficult making the decision to head back to urban life. If you know you wouldn’t be able to resist next time, make sure to get a booking at the local caravan park so you can explore even more of Toorbul Beach.
Toorbul Beach should be on everyone’s list of getaway spots, or rather, at the top of the list. You won’t be disappointed after visiting this charming small town and its gorgeous beach....
