Edwin Schrag Lookout is a great place to enjoy views across the water and take in the fresh, island air.
It is the final stop along the Woorim Beach Accessible Pathway, which winds south along the foreshore (parallel to Boyd Street) from the Bribie Island Surf Club.
Visitors using wheelchairs and walkers will be able to get unobstructed views across to Moreton Island from this elevated, grassy location.
Sealed pathways lead to seating from the off-road carpark, which also includes an accessible parking space. There is clear, directional signage, making this a convenient and accessible place to stop whether you are using the path or driving.
If you would like to enjoy a cooked lunch, there are BBQ facilities and shelters available at the nearby Edwin Schrag Park. There’s nothing quite like sausages and burgers by the beach.
Beach access points are dotted along the Woorim Beach Foreshore. If you really want to get in on the sand and water action, head north to Bluey Piva Park and Beach Access Point 12 where there is accessible beach matting, and wheelchairs available for free hire.
Spot some local marine life
Whale watching season in the Moreton Bay Region runs from June through to October. You may be lucky enough to spot these amazing marine animals from Edwin Schrag Lookout. The waters around Bribie Island and the Pumicestone Passage is a protected marine park that also provides habitat for dugongs, turtles and dolphins.
