Cleveland Point - Brisbane

Here is a new guide to a place on the far eastern side of Brisbane. It's kind of surprising that it has taken this long for somebody to write a guide for Cleveland Point. It's a very popular location and many photographers have been there snapping away. Thanks to Beth Wode for completing a guide to this beautiful spot. It's great to see you on board and we hope to see more from you.

Explore beaches and dunes, headlands, bushland or fresh water lakes. Best of all, it's a great spot for sunset and sunrise. Take your family for a camping trip or stay in one of the many accommodations. Thanks for your contribution John :-)
