Bribie Island is wonderfully flat and consequently is much easier than many places for getting around. To help with this, wide, flat paths run alongside the water for several kilometrees on both sides of the bridge, as one crosses to the island. Cross the bridge and turn right and you are soon in Bongaree. This is still a sleepy little spot with beautiful water views, especially in the late afternoon as the sun sets. One of the best places around to enjoy the sunset, or any other time for that matter, is one of the verandahs at the Bribie Island Bowls Club. It is an old building and is not accessible from the front door. However, go up the driveway to the left of the building to the carpark at the rear and enter via the paths next to the bowling greens.   It is also possible to turn left into the next street and access a carpark behind the bowling greens from this side.  Once inside, the eating areas, bar, gaming machines and verandahs are all on one level. There are accessible toilets and if you fancy a games of lawn bowls, the club has a specially designed wheelchair which can be used if someone with a disability wants to play. Mobility scooters are not allowed inside the Bowls Club. Nearby on the other side of the road are a couple of casual restaurants, Blue Anchorage and also Flaming Mals, where you can sit outside if it's a nice day and enjoy the laid-back surroundings. Getting to the Sylvan Road Esplanade on the left of the bridge is a bit more complicated as there is no left turn off the bridge when reaching Bribie. However,it is worth making the effort as not only do you find the Bribie Island Hotel,with a TAB, Keno and a Liqorland next door, which is open 7 days a week. The Hotel is accessible and spacious, with accessible toilets, large dining areas, a lounge and a grassed outdoor area. (See images) There is also motel style accommodation, although this is currently not set up to cater for people with disabilities. On this side of the bridge, the coastal paths lead you to not one, but two accessible children's playgrounds. (See images). It's not every day you find ramps which take you all the way to the top of the climbing equipment and the slippery slide! The first playground is in Crest Park. The second one is further along under the trees and a sign nearby says 'Pirates only!'Follow the coastal path up far enough, or drive up the road and head into the generously sized carpark and you'll come to another little eaterie with lovely water views, called 'Seaclusion'.

A wide path also runs all the way from Bellara on the calm water side of the island, to Woorim on the surf side.  This path is almost completely level.
