Bribie Island - Cities, Towns and Localities
Located about 100 km north-east of Brisbane within the Moreton Bay region, Bribie Island is a low sand island about 100 sq km in area and is separated from the mainland by the narrow Pumicestone Passage. With the main population based around the three areas of Bellara and Bongaree on the passage side, and Woorim on the ocean side.

On the eastern side is a 40 km surf beach. You can also purchase a permit and drive the 30 km up towards Caloundra, taking in the view of the lagoons, the wildlife and the wartime forts, that were used to protect Brisbane from Japanese submarine attacks. As well as the many picnic spots, there is also the Bribie Island National Park.

During the early stages of World War II coastal fortifications were built at the northern end of Bribie Island (Fort Bribie), and at Skirmish Point (Skirmish Battery) at the southern end near the seaside village of Woorim, as part of the defence of the port of Brisbane. Check out the Fort Bribie link and the Indicator Loops of the Royal Australian Navy at Bribie Island site. What are Indicator Loops? Indicator Loops were developed by the Royal Navy in the early 1900s to detect enemy submarines in their ports.
