Thurecht Park

Thurecht Park is a real hidden gem in Scarborough, and a great destination for boat enthusiasts.

This long park is a green oasis tucked in behind the Moreton Bay Boat Club. It has plenty of open grassed areas, birdlife, and shaded picnic spots.

There are toilet blocks with accessible facilities, clear pathways, a chip bark playground, accessible parking, fitness equipment, tables and chairs, and BBQs.

Sealed pathways wind seamlessly through the trees and gardens, allowing visitors to explore at their own pace in a relaxing environment.

Green oasis with all the comforts

Thurecht Park has two separate toilet blocks with accessible facilities, located at either end of the grassy stretch. This layout makes it easy for visitors to access amenities, and navigate through the park. Pack a do-it-yourself picnic or BBQ lunch, or visit one of the nearby cafés or restaurants, including the Moreton Bay Boat Club.

Moreton Bay Boat Club

The Moreton Bay Boat Club is conveniently located across the road from Thurecht Park on Bird O’Passage Parade. Here, you will find food and drinks, gaming, entertainment, functions and more.

Situated on the most northern tip of the Redcliffe Peninsula, the Moreton Bay Boat Club has views of the Glass House Mountains and overlooks a 118-berth marina. See if you can spot the different types of boats in the water.
