Beach Status

Beach

Moreton Island lies 15 km due east of Woorim, with the waters in between forming the wide, shoal dominated entrance to Moreton Bay. Moreton Island protects Bribie Island from most southerly swell, resulting in waves averaging 0.5 to 1 m along Woorim beach (1556). These usually produce a narrow high tide beach with a continuous attached bar exposed at low tide (Fig. 2.8a & 4.136). Rip channels are usually absent at Woorim and only form during and following waves greater than 1 m. However southerly winds can produce a strong current running to the north.

Swimming

Woorim is a relatively safe beach, particularly under normal low waves. Be careful when waves exceed 1 m as they can produce a heavy shorebreak, rips and a drag along the beach. South of Skirmish Point and along Bongaree Beach the waves are usually low, however tidal currents become an increasing hazard.

Surfing

Usually a low shorebreak, which closes out in bigger surf.

Fishing

A very popular fishing destination for both beach and bay fishing.

General

The closest surfing beach north of Brisbane and a popular weekend and holiday destination.
