All vehicles, before entering any approved Bribie Island beach area, must be registered and have a valid permit attached to the left side of the vehicle’s windscreen. If the vehicle does not have a windscreen the permit must be displayed in another prominent position.
Drive on the harder sand between the waterline and the high tide mark for the firmest surface.
Remember that other people use the beach, so stay alert, follow the normal road rules and drive carefully! Use only designated access points to the beach and keep off the sand dunes.
Make sure you know any local rules about using vehicles on beaches. Do the right thing and other drivers will follow your good example.
