The Classic Boat Regatta

For over 20 years, each May, Bribie Islanders  have enjoyed witnessing Classic Boats, large and small, flocking into the Pumicestone Passage for a weekend of Messing about in Boats - general fun on our fantastic waterway.

The boats are accessible to the public for free at certain times during the weekend.

  • The boats visit Toorbul beach at midday Saturday.
  • Visit Pacific Harbour 3pm Saturday.
  • On Sunday a  parade through Pacific Harbour canals and finally
  • From 11am owners proudly display their boats to the public while undertaking some simple boating activities at Sylvan Beach.

Who can enter?

Entry is open to all old and new classic and timber boat owners. Come along for a great weekend.

A Free night  at Pacific Harbour marina is available for participants (Sat.) and discounted berthing rates for extra nights.

There's a free lunch on Saturday on the beach at Toorbul supported by the Bribie Island Mahalo Outrigger Canoe Club  and the Bribie Island Sailing Club and is provided courtesy of the Moreton Bay Regional Council.

For those returning to the Spinnaker Sound ramp on Saturday it’s a pleasant trip after lunch from Toorbul.

Those arriving by sea please note the Bribie Island Bridge air draft.
