About Brighton

Get directions

The art deco arches at each end of the Hornibrook Bridge are the only remnants of the once landmark bridge that connected the city, via Brighton, with Redcliffe Peninsula. Brighton has a wonderful woodland wetland protected by the local government. This natural reserve is made up of three woods; namely Goodenia Woods, Pimelea Woods and Dianella Woods.
