Redlands Museum
 
The Redlands has a wonderful Museum, which our combined Rotary Clubs have been very honoured to be part of.  The displays are interesting to say the least, and will take you back in time as history presents itself to the modern world.

Come and join a group and have a Devonshire tea at the Museum whilst taking in all that this magnificent Redlands facility has to offer.
 
 
Kayak Tour

Fancy being on the water - but hopefully not getting wet?

Redlands_Kayak_tours.jpg

One of our local businesses, Redlands Kayak Tours will take you on a tour of some of our splendid waterways - you get to paddle one of their kayaks on an escorted tour and who knows what you will see along the way. Tour is for up to 24 people - 12 Single and 6 double kyaks at $65 per head.
 
 
Fishing

Fancy going fishing?

Moreton_Bay_Charters.jpg
 
Moreton Bay Charters is a locally owned charter company who can take just a few people out for a memorable morning - and hopefully come home with a visible memento of 'fish on Friday'! Join this trip if it is 'tight lines' you seek. Cost is $100 per person (business is up for sale so details may change)

Stradbroke Island Tour
 
Have you ever visited one of our Bay Islands?

Stradbroke Island, sitting off beautiful Redland Bay is a special place - join Rotarian President Lorraine Hooker as she escorts a group over to the Island by barge (walk on - walk off) - picks up a bus on the other side and takes you through the North Gorge Walk before enjoying coffee at one of the local eateries.

Other Redlands Activities (Own Arrangements)

1. Walk to King Island from Wellington Point at Low Tide

Wellington Point on the mainland is a great spot to spend the day.  When the waters hit low tide, you can walk across to the tiny King Island. Don’t dawdle or you might get stuck over there.

2. Visit the Cleveland Point Lighthouse Cleveland Point

At just 12m tall, this hexagonal wooden lighthouse is so cute we just want to hug it. Originally built in 1864, the structure used kerosene until 1934 when it was converted to electricity. It’s a great place to watch the sunset or sunrise (hence its popularity with photographers) and you can extend your visit by dining at the Lighthouse Restaurant across the road. Naturally, the focus of this seaside venue is on seafood. There is also a more casual cafe and fish 'n' chips takeaway window.

3. Stop for lunch and wine tastings at Sirromet - Restaurant Lurleens

Queensland’s largest and most highly awarded winery, Sirromet Winery is a must-visit for food and wine lovers. Aside from the obvious attractions (wine, duh) it has stunning views of surrounding bushland, the bay and North Stradbroke Island. On site find fine dining Restaurant Lurleen’s for a meal, or head to the more casual Tuscan Terrace bistro.

4. Explore culture at Indigiscapes

Lay your hands on a 400-year-old Tallowood Tree, spot a koala in the gardens and tuck into an Australian bush tucker take on Devonshire tea (think strawberry and wattleseed jam). Take a tour of the garden at the Redlands IndigiScapes centre and sample the sweetness of rosella and lilly pilly and munch on the savoury tanginess of bush tomatoes and kurrajong seed.

5. Uncover the area’s small galleries

Soak in the work of local artists at small studios including Inart Studio, Hubers Fine Art and the Old Schoolhouse Gallery. The Old Schoolhouse Gallery is run by artists, for artists and is just up the road from the Redland Art Gallery in Cleveland.
