“A bit disappointing.”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 July 2013

If you're looking for a sandy beach, this muddy one is not for you. It's probably okay for naturalists, and the park and grassed areas are OK.

“Always worth the trip ..”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 May 2013

Preferably when the tide is in BUT if not the flats are a great walk and the photo opportunities abound. Mangroves trees along the beach edge and the wetlands walk close bye ... Lovely for a quiet picnic and the facilities are all there .

“Great cafe!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 May 2013

Nudgee Beach is very small and very popular with cyclists - it is a useful turnaround point or a food/drink break for longer trips en route north to Sandgate and Redcliffe, or west along Jim Soorley bikeway and Kedron Brook bikeway and points west and south of those. The beach is essentially mud with mangroves but pretty nevertheless and great views. When the tide is out you often see families with young children walking with dogs, and sometimes horses being exercised. The one and only cafe there, Pam's cafe 88 (in O'Quinn St), is incredibly popular as Pam and husband Harry are just so welcoming to cyclists and they have good coffee and green tea and good food. There are toilets and a tap in the park at the beach.

“Very sparse”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 May 2013

There are lot of eating areas, but unfortunantly water suffers from tides. But it is peaceful, lots of area for kids to play, and set yourself up for a nice barbecue. Once again you will need to do your own catering.

“Another community detroyed”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 April 2013

Nudgee beach used to be an idyllic is spot with a small but friendly local community. However it has been progressively ruined by development not the least of which is the nearby Brisbane Private Airport, the Gateway redevelopment and other intrusive developments.
Do not expect much unless the tide is in for your stay at which time it can be a pleasant spot
