Scarborough Foreshore

If it’s a seaside adventure you are after, the Scarborough Foreshore makes for a great day out with accessible pathways, shady parks and lots to see and do.

The Scarborough Foreshore, including Endeavour Park, Jim Finlay Park, Thurecht Park, Jamieson Park and Scarborough Beach Park, forms part of the Moreton Bay Cycleway.

This path continues down along the Redcliffe waterfront, and offers plenty of options for wheelchair and walker users. Sightseeing, opportunities to play and learn in an inclusive environment, dining and more!

What to bring

We suggest you pack your sunscreen and hat as you enjoy all the sights and sounds along the Scarborough Foreshore. While most of the parks offer comfortable shelter, parts of the pathway are exposed to the sun and elements. Beat the heat and remember to cool off in the shade and refill your water bottle.

You can also bring a do-it-yourself lunch and snacks, or stop off at one of the cafés or takeaway stores.
