Description: Redlands, like most of SE Queensland, is looking a picture from recent rains. What better time to explore this scenic bayside suburb by bike. Hopefully, by early March, we’ll enjoy finer weather, cooler days and bayside breezes during the ride.
The ride will leave from Raby Bay Harbour Park (across the road in front of Cleveland Railway Station) to Victoria Point. It will be on walking/bike paths most of the way visiting the historic Cleveland Lighthouse, the heritage-listed St Pauls Anglican Church (C1873-74) before joining the Eddie Santagiuliana Way and cycling along the mangrove-fringed coastline and through Eprapah Creek and Pt Halloran Conservation Areas. Great views of the coastline and the bay islands are afforded along the way as well as a variety of flora and fauna. Coffee and eats are on the menu at Oven King Bakery, Victoria Point, before a leisurely treadle back to the Cleveland Station via Eddie Santagiuliana Way. (Total distance – around 45km)
