The Moreton Bay region in South East Queensland is a cyclist's dream come true. With its breathtaking coastal views, diverse landscape, and 150 kilometers of cycling lanes and routes, it's no wonder that the Moreton Bay cycle path is one of the most popular beach bike routes in the area. From Scarborough Beach to the Ted Smout Memorial Bridge in Clontarf, recreational cyclists can explore 11 kilometers of uninterrupted trails. The Bicentennial Bikeway is the busiest bicycle and pedestrian trail in Brisbane and one of the busiest in Australia.
The Moreton Bay Regional Bike Path (MBRC) is a set of cycling lanes and routes that cover 150 kilometers of the Brisbane coast.

Keep pedaling until you reach the Gayundah shipwreck at Scotts Point, under the cliffs of Woody Point, in the Moreton Bay region (3 km). The Moreton Bay region recognizes the country and traditional waterways of the Jinibara, Kabi Kabi and Yuggera nations. It's also home to some iconic flora, such as the fig tree in Moreton Bay, and several marine plants controlled by the state (such as mangroves and marine mantle) that need continuous protection. Discover everything that Moreton Bay has to offer: from picturesque inland hideaways to beach escapes on Moreton Island.
