Picturesque and laidback, Thorneside may be a small seaside town, but it has everything you need, and then some. Bordered by Moreton Bay and Tingalpa Creek, this waterside oasis is a popular weekend destination, especially for fishing and boating. With so much to love, from the wetlands to Beth Boyd Park, to the towering gum trees and year-round summer feel, Thorneside is a true gem in the Bayside area.
Quiet and homely, Thorneside is mainly residential. The streets are filled with established family abodes which provide an idyllic lifestyle by the sea. And at the centre of it all is William Taylor Memorial Sportsground, a sprawling parkland with picnic facilities and a skate park. The foreshore walk is easily accessed - in one direction it leads to Beth Boyd Park and the calm waters of Thorneside Beach, and the other way leads to Aquatic Paradise West Park in neighbouring Birkdale – both popular among local families.
Well-positioned to soak up the best of the Bayside area, Thorneside is only moments away from the hubs of Wellington Point and Manly, giving locals access to some of the area’s much-loved cafes and dining hotspots. Locals have their pick of schools in surrounding suburbs, and for those commuting for work, Thorneside Train Station connects to Brisbane CBD in one direction and Cleveland in the other.
A little beauty along Moreton Bay, Thorneside laps up the best of both worlds.
