Victoria Point QLD

Victoria Point

Postcode: 4165

Victoria Point is one of the 21 bayside suburbs of the Redland Shire, approximately 20 kilometres South-East of Brisbane, and is primarily a residential area, but also contains shopping centres and a ferry service to Coochiemudlo island.

As of June 2003, Victoria Point was estimated to be home to 13,249 people, with most of these of working age. The 2006 Census shows the population at 13,753 of which 6,609 are Male and 7,144 are Female.

The main point area has two boat ramps, and a Volunteer Marine Rescue unit is also based at the point.

Beach areas include Thompson’s Beach, a small child safe beach (but sometimes suffers from blue-green algae), which has a very shallow slope, allowing a long tide.

Shopping facilities have expanded rapidly in the last few years, and now with four Supermarkets, a Public Library, a Cinema Complex and many speciality shops and Lakeside Restaurants.
