Meet My Suburb: Victoria Point

by Sophie Cannon (follow)
Welcome to our new weekly series - Meet My Suburb! Your one stop shop for useful information regarding Brisbane suburbs.

Victoria Point

Victoria Point has been rapidly expanded and modernised over the last few years, and what was once a sleepy, primarily residential suburb, is now one of the most popular destinations within the Redlands.

Victoria Point in roughly 33km south east of Brisbane City, so not the easiest commute if you do work further in, however there are numerous bus services available from the Victoria Point bus station, and Cleveland train station is roughly a 10 minute drive away.

"My son started here after we immigrated from the UK and we, as a family, were made to feel nothing but welcome. The staff are so friendly and warm and the centre itself is finished to a really high standard. Lots of activities and events that parents are welcome to attend and overall a wonderful childcare centre where I felt comfortable leaving my son." - BMG Member

W H Yeo Park at Thompsons Beach
W H Yeo Park is a great place within Victoria Point to visit with the family; whether you're playing on the park, taking a dip in the ocean or heading out for a BBQ or picnic, this one has it all.

The park runs right alongside the shoreline, with a small toddler playground to start with, followed by a basketball court and exercise equipment, and ending with a larger playground, ideal all ages but specifically designed for children aged 4 and up.

There is plenty of grassland for ball games, sheltered picnic areas, BBQs and toilet facilities, as well as a long pathway that runs the entire length of the park, ideal for first time bike riders or leisurely strolls.

Thompson's Beach is one of the better places in the Redlands to go for a swim as the water is relatively clear and weed free. There are also plenty of shady spots on the beach, making it perfect for sun conscious families.

Address: 2-30 Eagle Street, Victoria Point 4165

Victoria Point is a hugely popular destination for outdoor living, with numerous parks and walking trails, as well as the gateway to Coochiemudlo Island. 'Coochie' is a great option for a family day trip and ferries regularly run from the jetty on Masters Avenue.

If you're looking to spend some time indoors however, Victoria Point is also an awesome option! The 'Lakeside' precinct is full of restaurants, bars, cafes and shops (including Aldi), as well as a Cineplex and library.

Or if you're looking for even more retail therapy, the Victoria Point shopping centre is home to an array of stores, including Woolworths, Coles, Kmart, Lorna Jane, Best n Less, The Reject Shop and many more, as well as a mini food court and Coffee Club.

And if that wasn't enough, on the other side of Cleveland Redland Bay Road is another large Woolworths, Bunnings and various eateries.

Also, don't forget to check out Victoria Point's 'Inflatable World' located at the YMCA on Link Rd, an awesome place to take the kids on rainy weekends!
