The City of Redcliffe has a population of approximately 50,000 people and is located 35 minutes north of Queensland’s capital city, Brisbane

Redcliffe is a residential suburb of the Moreton Bay Region in the north-east of the Redcliffe peninsula, approximately 28 kilometres (17 mi) north-north-east of Brisbane, the state capital of Queensland, Australia. It serves as the Central Business District for the Redcliffe Peninsula and its surrounding suburbs.

Redcliffe is part of the statistical division of Brisbane.

The city’s name originates from “Red Cliff Point” named by the explorer John Oxley. Redcliffe became Queensland’s first colony in 1824, however it was soon abandoned for Brisbane.

We only drove past Redclffe, which is a very prosperous and thriving city located right on the coast.

Since the 1880s, Redcliffe has been a popular seaside resort location due to its proximity to Brisbane.

It is served by a small general aviation airfield, Redcliffe Airport (ICAO: YRED), located 2.5 nautical miles (4.6 km; 2.9 mi) northwest of Redcliffe in the suburb of Rothwell
