On Wednesday (13/1/16) afternoon, myself (Tara) along with a few summer-lovin’ students had the pleasure of going to Sandgate Beach for this week’s activity.
It was such a clear day, that you could even see Moreton Island across the bay! From here, you can also see Redcliffe and part of the Port of Brisbane. We could not have picked a more perfect day to go – the sun was shining, the breeze was cool and some students even decided to go for a swim!
For those of you who don’t know where Sandgate beach is, it is about a 35 minute train ride from Brisbane Central train station on the Shorncliffe (dark blue coloured) line. It is one of the oldest towns in Brisbane, and it has a lot of beautiful old buildings.
After we explored the sandbanks on the beach, we decided to get some refreshments over at the local fish & chip shop. This place is a favourite amongst the locals of Sandgate – even the students enjoyed it as well! 🙂 (no crabs were harmed!!)
Sandgate just so happens to be my hometown! 🙂 So if you have any questions about how to get there/what things you should see and do, please feel free to ask! You should see it at least once while you’re in Brisbane!
