If you haven’t heard of Bribie’s Sandstone Point Holiday Resort and neighboring Sandstone Point Hotel, it’s time you did. This vacation spot is very cult among holidaymakers from Brisbane and even visitors from further afield.
With accommodation options including luxury villas, safari tents and camping and caravanning sites, as well as facilities including a swimming pool, water park, lawn play area, tennis courts, arcade and of course the neighboring award-winning Sandstone Point Holiday Resort is basically the perfect place for a family getaway if you don’t want to travel far – and that’s even better.
Opening on the grounds just in time for the September school holidays is a heated pool bar where you can order cocktails without getting out of the water. Who needs to go to Bali when you can sip margs in the pool just an hour’s drive north of Brisbane? Resort upgrades also include a spa, ideal for those cooler spring and fall nights.
During this time, at The Sandstone Point Hotel, the former waterfront Oyster Shed, is being transformed into a beach bar, with even more room for diners and keen seafood and pub drinkers. That’s on top of the massive hotel’s other bar and restaurant options — there’s a reason this place was named QHA’s Hotel of the Year in 2021.
Add to that the many quiet beaches around Bribie where you can swim and fish and you have an easy weekend getaway that still packs a punch. You can delimit the station here, and stay up to date with what’s happening on their Facebook page.
