This peaceful spot is emerging as an attractive option for buyers wanting to enjoy the best of a beachside lifestyle.
Boasting pristine beaches, gourmet dining and boating marinas, the beautiful Redcliffe Peninsula offers an unrivalled seaside lifestyle.
However, despite being just 40 minutes north of Brisbane’s CBD, the 2016 Census revealed just shy of 50,000 residents call the region home — helping the peninsula preserve its reputation as a quiet beachside haven.

“It’s really interesting that more people don’t know about the area,” says Brent Dallow, director at Venture Property.
“To me, it’s like the eastern suburbs of Sydney but near Brisbane — it just hasn’t been discovered yet. It has so much to offer in terms of lifestyle, but it’s still a little bit of a secret.”
Here’s just a few reasons why Redcliffe Peninsula could be Brisbane’s best-kept secret.
Redcliffe on the radar
For home buyers looking for a seaside property, Redcliffe Peninsula has it all. From homes with direct water access to foreshore parks, shopping and dining, the best of beachside living is right at your doorstep.
There’s always things to do locally, like enjoy the sunset from the Redcliffe or Woody Point Jetties, hit up the library or local art gallery, visit the botanical gardens or see the wildlife from Pelican Park Clontarf.
There’s also the Redcliffe Markets held on the waterfront every Sunday. This is a hit among local residents with fruit and vege stalls, live music, delicious food and local arts and crafts, Dallow says.

“It’s got two marinas and it’s not like the Gold Coast where you have to navigate the estuaries,” Dallow adds.
“It’s right on Moreton Bay, so you can take the yacht out or go fishing without any trouble because you’re right there.”
There are tangible signs people are picking up on the peninsula’s charms, Anne Flaherty, economist at realestate.com.au, explains.
Property prices in some local postcodes increased by 30% in the past 12 months, according to PropTrack data – “well above the state and national average,” she says. Increasing rental prices also indicate there’s been no slowdown in demand for people wanting to call Redcliffe home.
For example, in Scarborough — one of Redcliffe’s most prestigious seaside spots — the median house prices was up 30% in the year to September ’22, while the median rental price was up 15%.
Plus, the Redcliffe region offers plenty of further growth opportunity.
“It’s an area that has a lot to offer,” Flaherty says. “There’s really good connectivity — it’s within commuting distance to Brisbane’s CBD, which is very convenient for younger workers. Plus, it’s only 30 minutes’ drive from the airport.”
Beach homes reimagined
With the area ideal for seaside living, so too are the new generation of beach homes.
Being the only beachfront luxury townhouse development on the peninsula, Lucia Queens Beach in Scarborough has been carefully tailored to maximise its premium beachfront location.

“Each spacious residence offers three or four bedrooms, with some having the added bonus of an extra multi-purpose room providing the flexibility of an extra living space, bedroom, home office, gym or music room,” Dallow explains.
“It can be another bedroom or a home office — whatever the buyer wants.
“It has its own ensuite so it can effectively be its own studio style area, which is very appealing.”
At the heart of the design is a large open kitchen with Miele appliances and stone island benches.
There are multiple balconies, with some residences boasting two living areas. The bathrooms are luxurious, with rain shower heads and some with standalone baths.
Water views also play a major role in the design with each home carefully orientated toward the sea, Dallow shares.
“The idea is that you can always see the view from multiple areas of the home. So if the breeze is up, you can retreat inside while still enjoying the water views.”
Dream home features

Every residence comes with a private lift, which provides access to every floor.
“That can be very useful for a buyer long term or suit someone younger who may have older parents visiting,” Dallow adds.
There’s also double garage parking, offering additional storage. Plus, buyers can also choose to include a private pool, which fits neatly into the design.
Starting from $1.99 million and ranging up to $3.39 million each of the homes are unique but all wrapped up within a beautiful beach-inspired facade.
“We were aiming for something special and different to what’s already available in the area, such as apartments — I think these residences really achieve that,” Dallow says.
