Enjoy a bit of history with your fish and chips at Brighton

You know those days when you don’t want to deal with housework, lawnmowing, yard clean up, paperwork, shopping or traffic? There’s a lovely tranquil spot at Brighton that is just made for that kind of day. It’s picturesque, calming and sensory with its gorgeous vista, comfortable facilities and fresh sea aroma. It’s Brighton Park, at the southern end of the old Hornibrook Bridge. Definitely the calm side of the bridge, the water laps gently at the little beach, inviting you in to get your feet wet. You can throw in a line if you want and you might catch a fish or two. The water is also safe and clean to take the kiddies for a paddle.

For those who like their parks uncluttered and uncomplicated, Brighton Park is kind of minimalist, but in a good way! You’ll find a couple of picnic shelters with tables and chairs and there’s also a great electric barbecue that’s free of charge for the public to use.

Car parking is right nearby so you won’t have to lug your chairs, blanket and esky too far. Sit and watch the cars cross both ways over the bride and wonder where on earth everyone is going. You might see the occasional fish jumping out of the water or gaze up at the clouds and simply revel in the enjoyment of peace.

 

Spend an hour exploring the bridge. The original bridge was opened on 14 October 1935 then closed to road traffic in 1979, after which it became a prime spot for anglers and a means of accessing either end via bike or on foot. It was, in fact, the longest footbridge in the world until its closure to foot traffic in July 2010. Sadly, the original bridge was demolished in mid-2011 but the visually appealing art-deco style concrete abutment arches remain as a reminder of what used to be.

On 20th December 1979, then-Premier Sir Joh Bjelke-Petersen opened the new bridge, dubbed the Houghton Highway. It consists of 99 spans on top of 400 T-beams. It was long a mecca for pelicans who clamour for warmth or a birds’-eye view of the surrounding area, on top of the light poles. In 2006, bird deterrents were added to five of the poles but it was decided not to apply them to the other forty-four in case they injured the birds.

 

In July 2010, the Ted Smout Memorial Bridge was opened and is currently used as a road and pedestrian bridge and includes a bicycle path. It’s the first bridge in Australia designed to withstand Hurricane Katrina-style storm events. It features a fishing platform near the Pine River channel and was named after Ted Smout, Queensland’s last surviving World War One veteran who lived in Sandgate until his passing in 2004.

 

But back to Brighton Park…

 

Pick up some fish and chips from Brighton or make a cut lunch and inhale the fresh sea breezes while you munch away. An impromptu game of soccer or putting a kite up in the air is made all the more pleasant when you have a beautiful green lawn to run around on. That’s exactly what you’ll find at Brighton Park so plan to visit soon.

Where is Brighton?

Ahh lovely Brighton with its sunny outlook and fresh breezes. You’ll find this sleepy waterfront suburb 19km north-east of Brisbane CBD and its neighbouring suburbs are Griffin, Sandgate, Bracken Ridge, Bald Hills, Deagon and Shorncliffe.

 

GreenSocks will happily organise lawn mowing services in all of those Brisbane suburbs – including further out to Murrumba Downs, Mango Hill, North Lakes, Whiteside, Petrie, Lawnton, Brendale and so on.

 

Quick Wikipedia fact: Brighton’s glory days were during World War II when the RAAF’s Air Training School were housed in the barracks there from December 1940 to May 1946. Today, the site is the Eventide Nursing Home.
