There are plenty of activities on Bribie including the Seaside Museum, Butterfly House, weekend markets and Bribie Twin Cinema, as well as an assortment of delicious dining opportunities at local restaurants and cafes.

We offer a variety of in-house activities also, including arts and crafts, games and trivia, cooking experiences and movie days.
