History of Woody Point

Woody Point is historically significant as the landing spot of Mathew Flinders in 1799.

Much of the peninsula was subdivided into farm lots in the early 1870s, but settlement was sparse. The construction of the peninsula's first significant jetty at Woody Point in 1882, brought about some development.

The Belvedere was first built in the 1890s as a boarding house by Mrs Jamison. She later sold the premise to Thomas Snook who then converted it into a hotel and pub in 1901.

Woody Point was the first stopping place after crossing Bramble Bay on the Hornibrook Highway (1935). It tended to draw people after an outing of fish and chips on the foreshore.

Woody Point is the final resting place of the heavily armed 'Gayundah' warship wreck which first took to the water in 1885 before being decommissioned in 1958.

Residential redevelopment - apartments and units was concentrated around the Redcliffe and Scarborough beaches in the 1980s-90s, but by the 2000s developers reconsidered Woody Point.
