History of Redcliffe

Redcliffe was Queensland’s first settlement city. On 12 September 1824 the Amity arrived with the first party of Redcoats and convicts to inspect Woody Point, but after searching here and on the island of St Helena for drinkable water, they eventually settled near the present-day town of Redcliffe.

John Oxley and Lieutenant Henry Miller surveyed the entire peninsula, before deciding to establish the settlement about 200 metres from the beach. Over the next 8 months the convicts constructed the Commandants House and store (prefabricated in Sydney), the soldiers’ barracks, a jail and a range of smaller buildings and huts, but by this time the conditions on the peninsula were becoming a major concern with food and water becoming ever scarcer. They relocated to Brisbane city in 1825.

The town’s name originates from “Red Cliff Point” named by the explorer Matthew Flinders, referring to the red cliffs at Woody Point.
