Each May the Bribie Classic Boat Regatta takes place on the Pumicestone Passage at Bribie Island.
Our beautiful island celebrates a rich maritime history within the backdrop of a post-card perfect coastline and hinterland.   
The traditional owners of Bribie Island are the Gubbi Gubbi and Joondoburri people.
Bribie Island was known as Yarun, which means ‘Hunting Ground’ 
Discovered by Matthew Flinders on his 1799 exploration north from Sydney on HM sloop “Norfolk”, he landed on Bribie Island on 16 July.
Today Bribie  Island  is about an hours drive north of Brisbane and  the ‘Pumicestone Passage’ at Bribie Island is a perfect setting for assembling a fleet of classic maritime vessels. The Bribie Classic Boat Regatta is the local way to express a laid-back Bribie Island lifestyle and tells a story about the rich maritime environment and heritage that we are proud to share.
