Well technically Redcliffe is a seperate city of 50000, but I have always thought of it as part of Brissie.
It's a scandal that it still doesn't have a rail link with Brisbane after countless election promises.
It's traditionally a firm Labor seat, you can bet if it was a swinging electorate a rail link would have been built years ago.

For some more pictures, aerials no less, check my Cessna flight thread which I am going to post after this one.

I used to have such a low opinion of Redcliffe, but after going out there hundreds of times in the last few years I've really changed my mind. Quiet, yet still not a long way from the CBD. Really nice waterfront, and gradually getting more apartments.

Indeed it is a nice place and fab shots as always Aussie bhoy. You didnt walk over that bridge did you? :)

I've been to Redcliffe a few times and i've always loved how the place is set out with the roading and spacing. Its sure got alot of room to grow evenly.

Has Redcliffe got access to rail?

There is no rail at present, but every couple of years, usually before an election it gets mentioned.

Didn't walk the bridge, all shots are from the Redcliffe side, but if I lived around there I would definitly include the bridge in my runs.

Whenever any one mentions Brisbane as being "inland" I always think of places like Redcliffe, Wynnum and the Moreton Bay islands and think, no we're not.
