Bordered by beautiful Moreton Bay, Wellington Point knows how to turn it on, especially when it comes to water sports. Perfectly positioned in the Bayside area, this charming town boasts a laidback village, parklands aplenty and a profusion of family homes – this is seaside living at its best.
A quiet oasis during the week, but when the weekend rolls around, Wellington Point is bustling with day-tippers. With unbeatable access to the bay, water sports are a favourite past-time. Windsurfers, kayakers, sailboats – you name it, they can be spotted year-round. Wellington Point Recreation Reserve and its jetty protrude into the bay while the foreshore park is set up with picnic facilities. Birdwatchers favour the wetlands along the eastern foreshore, but when the tide is low, locals wade over to explore King Island.
Along Main Road, Wellington Point village has a line-up of cafes and restaurants that keep locals well-fuelled. All your daily amenities can be found here, and further down the road is Wellington Point Train Station, which has commuters to Brisbane within an hour - keeping families that are drawn to the area for its lifestyle connected to city-based work.
Schools are plentiful, and the leafy streets are lined with homes fit for growing families, complete with fenced-in backyards that often play host to weekend barbeques. Playing fields and parkland are scattered throughout, bringing a welcomed connection with the outdoors. It is a lifestyle that has put Wellington Point on the radar of many people seeking a sea-change within easy reach of the city.
