The newest kid on the block, Newport is a seaside neighbourhood that is on the up and up. Located at the northern end of Redcliffe Peninsula on beautiful Moreton Bay, Newport was born from land and canal development, west side of Scarborough. It may be young, but Newport has big things planned, with more development underway, including a new retail precinct, a large non-tidal lake and homes with direct water access.
Already, Newport is in hot demand with large family homes taking pride of place along the edge of the canal. Foreshore parks and walkways link to neighbouring Scarborough – a popular weekend destination, thanks in part to its harbour and thriving seafood industry. And although Scarborough is the main port of call, Newport is fast becoming a launching pad for adventures out to sea, whether it be fishing charters or cruises. Needless to say, there is a strong boating and fishing culture that underpins Newport’s growing community.
Being new to the scene, cafes and restaurants are in short supply (for now), but locals don’t have to wander too far to access the finest the peninsula has to offer. Moments away is Redcliffe with its thriving café and dining scene, and Scarborough lays claim to some of the best fish n’ chips in the area. Schools are also in abundance and are close at hand, making Newport an even more attractive option for families seeking a more relaxed pace. And for those willing to commute, Brisbane CBD is under an hour’s drive away. There’s no denying that Newport offers an enviable lifestyle, and it’s only set to improve.
