Bluey Piva Park

Bluey Piva Park is a medium-sized park located at the entrance to Woorim Beach, and to the left of the Bribie Island Surf Club.

It has a large parking lot with directional signage and connecting pathways, an open grassed area, sandstone block seating, low and wide benches, picnic shelters, and BBQ facilities.

If you are looking for an accessible beach adventure on Bribie Island, make sure you put Bluey Piva Park at the top of your list. Not only is it nearby to Woorim’s restaurants and cafés, but it also marks the starting point of the Woorim Beach Accessible Pathway, which extends south to Edwin Schrag Lookout.

Bluey Piva Park opens up on to Beach Access Point 12, with accessible matting through the dunes and directly onto Woorim Beach. This allows wheelchairs, walkers, prams and other mobility devices to travel to the sand and water. Beach wheelchairs are available from the nearby Surf Club for free hire.

The large toilet block directly out the front includes accessible toilets and changing areas, so you can dry off before heading back to the car. You can also refill your water bottles at the water fountains, and recharge as you continue your island outing.

During whale watching season (June to October), you may even be able to spot a magnificent marine animal. Bluey Piva Park offers the trademark views across to Moreton Island, with its blue waters and white sand.
