Unlike the other Moreton Bay islands, Bribie Island also has a rich history in both social and military. The island was used by the Australian army and navy during World War 2 to defend the entrance to Brisbane, which led to the building of Fort Bribie. Original World War II bunkers and gun emplacements placed along the ocean foreshore are still on show today.
All in all, Bribie Island is worth a visit at least once in a life time.
