Shorncliffe is a little seaside suburb, located 15km northeast of the Brisbane CBD. Aboriginals called the area Warra, meaning an expanse of water. With its beautiful streets, super friendly locals, historically restored pier and picturesque foreshore, you can understand why Shorncliffe has been voted “the most liveable suburb in Brisbane”. Shorncliffe boasts a number of different festivals throughout the year, including The Blue Water Festival, the start of the Brisbane to Gladstone yacht race and the inaugural ‘Long Table’ dining event hosted under the full moon along Shorncliffe Pier. The Sandgate Golf Club is located in Shorncliffe and is one of the oldest (and most beautiful) in Queensland, set among waterways and natural bush.
A few local shops are scattered throughout the suburb, and the area includes Shorncliffe State Primary school, and private boys school St Patricks College. Brisbane Airport is a short 20-minute drive. Shorncliffe has one railway station, which is the terminus of the Shorncliffe railway line. It is a 45-minute direct ride into the Brisbane CBD.
