While it may be best known for Morgans Seafood Restaurant, Scarborough has a lot more to offer than just good food.
With its sandy beaches, scenic bikeways and breathtaking scenery, it’s fast becoming a popular destination for tourists, investors and home buyers alike.
The suburb is home to large houses with private jetties in canal developments. You will also find sea views from many of the homes located on Scarborough’s leafy streets.
Scarborough’s fishing harbour is the gateway to Moreton Island. The area is also spoilt with a plethora of parks, recreation facilities and cafes on offer.
The City of Redcliffe was Queensland’s first settlement set amid Moreton, Bramble and Deception Bays and is now home to over 50,000 residents.
One of Redcliffe’s most historic and celebrated foreshore areas, Suttons Beach, underwent a $2.4 million transformation in the later years of the twentieth century, which resulted in a 1.5km re-landscaped recreational area. In addition, the reconstruction of the Redcliffe jetty and streetscape works on Landsborough Ave add to the charm and beauty of this small seaside town.
The mix of old and new continues to make the area inviting to locals and visitors alike. As the most northerly point of the Redcliffe Peninsula, Scarborough is well placed between the Sunshine Coast (1 hour 15 minutes north) and Brisbane (1 hour south). Both are accessible via the Bruce Highway and the Gateway Arterial Road to the Port of Brisbane and the Brisbane domestic and international airports.
The suburb has a diverse range of both public and private business activities including tourism, manufacturing and light industry, retail and the fishing and seafood industry.
The main commercial element is retail trade with most local residents commuting to Brisbane for work.
Families are well catered for with several primary, high and special schools in the Redcliffe shire. Those undertaking tertiary education have access to a TAFE campus on Klinger Road.
