About Woorim

Woorim is on the eastern, or ocean, side of Bribie Island, adjacent to the Pacific Ocean. Often referred to as the ‘surf side’, Woorim is surrounded by national parks and pristine beaches.

If you’re looking for a place to surf, fish or swim at a patrolled beach, welcome to Woorim Beach. This is the perfect place for families with its barbeque and picnic areas as well as a new playground and skate park nearby. As Woorim is a surf beach, the waters can get treacherous when the waves get bigger, just do your research before heading out.

Woorim has a small shopping centre serving the local residents.

The Bribie Island Caravan Park is a popular spot for the tourists exploring the island.

Things to see and do in Woorim

History of Woorim

Historically significant Bribie Island attractions include vestiges of WWII naval defence fortifications, the most vital being Heritage Listed Fort Bribie, the dilapidated installation which sits on the north-eastern sands of Ocean Beach, up from the shell of the Fort Skirmish bunker located on the northern part of Woorim Beach.

The naval site of Fort Bribie was built at the outbreak of WWII, becoming operational by early 1942 to provide defence support for the RAN against light raiding warships.
