5 Top Sunset Locations With 2 Hours From Brisbane.
5 Top Sunset Locations Within 2 Hours From Brisbane – Sunsets we all love them, but being on the East Coast Of Australia it can be tricky to find that location that provides an Awesome Sunset and one that is especially over water.
This is a list of my 5 Top Sunset Locations Within 2 Hours From Brisbane:-
Tin Can Bay From Carlo Point,Rainbow Beach.
Tin Can Bay from Carlo Point, Rainbow Beach in my 5 Top Sunset Locations Within 2 Hours From Brisbane is probably just on that 2 hour limit although it is well worth the drive. The township of Rainbow Beach remains pretty much unspoiled and has numerous places to stay and is also the gateway to Fraser Island via the barges at Inskip point. The sunsets across water on the tranquil Tin Can Bay.
Moreton Bay From Amity Point, North Stradbrooke Island.
North Stradbrooke Island is only a short hop across Moreton Bay from Cleveland but it is a place where in a short period of time you might as be in another world, Straddie as it know to the locals has a very relaxed atmosphere and Amtiy Point with its direct views west will not disappoint you with its sunsets.
On The Storey Bridge.
Most people head for Kangaroo Point Cliffs to take sunset images of the City Of Brisbane. However a great spot is on the Storey Bridge facing west. You can capture the sunset but also the lights of the city high rises. Park below the bridge at Captain Burke park and it is only a short walk to the bridge. Dodge the walkers and runners but you get a spectacular perspective of The City of Brisbane.
Cleveland Point is the location of the only remaining timber clad light house on Moreton Bay. Not only is it a great sunset location but during storm activity it is has an excellent position to watch storms pass out to sea. Dotted around the point there are also some old jetties that make great foreground interest. But be quick as those storms pass the old jetties are deteriorating very quickly. Parking is also good however can be limited in peak times.
Wellington Point is an amazing place to capture sunset images especially if you are currently learning how to use your camera.
- The sunset sets over water giving nice ghostly water and reflections using a slow shutter.
- When the tides out you also get great textures in the sand.
- There is a lot of space allowing you to use different angles and perspectives.
- There is a pier and pier images always look great especially in that golden hour of Sunrise or Sunset.
- The is great parking so there is no need to stress over where to put the car.
When the sun hits that point with cloud around Wellington Point is the place to get some spectacular sunset shots.
