Redland’s northernmost suburb of Wellington Point is washed by the waters of Moreton Bay. And the city fathers have made the most of the prime bayside location with the dedication of a wealth of reserves and picnic spots to allow locals and visitors to enjoy access to this aquatic playground with its panoramic views of Moreton Bay's islands.
The coastline boasts a number of safe swimming beaches and boat-launching facilities. Built in 1874, Whepstead Manor provides Wellington Point’s historical focus. This lovingly-preserved old Queenslander, complete with stunning, landscaped grounds, now operates as a restaurant and function centre.
An eyecatcher in the village centre is the Wellington Point Clock Tower. Reminiscent of European villages, the tower was donated to the community in 1997 by Tanjas Cafe to mark the 25th anniversary of the popular rendezvous. The waterfront picnic area has sheltered tables and barbecues.
