History

   

The brig Amity set sail for Redcliffe from Sydney on September 1, 1824 carrying settlement commandant Lieutenant Miller, explorer John Oxley, a crew and convicts. The party landed at Redcliffe on September 13, 1824.  Redcliffe is part of the statistical division of Brisbane. The town's name originates from "Red Cliff Point" named by the explorer John Oxley, referring to the red cliffs at Woody Point. 

Redcliffe became Queensland's first colony in 1824; however, it was soon abandoned for Brisbane.

Before European settlement in 1824, the area now known as Redcliffe was inhabited by Aborigines who took full advantage of the foods that could be easily found in and around its waters.

The settlement of Redcliffe (so named because of the distinctive red cliff faces) by the early Europeans was directly linked to Australia’s convict heritage. Redcliffe, situated on the edge of Moreton Bay, was considered to be the best location for a new northern penal settlement.

Redcliffe underwent a significant land boom in the 1880s and was quickly gaining a reputation as a seaside resort - offering a seaside experience similar to many of the holiday destinations in England. A growing number of people were lured to Redcliffe to enjoy its safe, sheltered sandy beaches.

Today, Redcliffe is a modern city that still possesses the charm and beauty of a small seaside holiday town. The mix of old and new continues to make the city so inviting to locals and visitors alike.
