Settlement Cove, Redcliffe
(4.5/5 based on 100+ reviews on the web)
Located at the base of the city’s eponymous red cliffs, Settlement Cove is a large tropical swimming pool that is a favorite spot for families with small children and anyone else who enjoys splashing around shallow waters on hot days. This picturesque picnic spot is surrounded by shady fig and palm trees, and includes free barbecue facilities, large picnic shelters, playground areas, and showers. Next to it is a popular kids’ park, which features a seafront walk and bicycle paths, connecting this cove to the city’s main pier and the parks beyond. Stop by for a family day of fun and relaxation, but keep in mind that in this kid-friendly area no glass bottles or alcoholic beverages of any kind are allowed.

  • Ideal place for anyone who loves swimming or lounging around settled water (not sea waves). Very attractive & safe, Life Guard on duty during certain hours. We will go again often. 
  • Lovely place for a BBQ, stroll, swim in the evening with your loved ones, can get quite busy during the day. Do highly recommend for a fun family outing

  • My (8 year old) daughter loves this place! It seems to be fairly clean and well kept. On busy days it can be a bit crowded for comfort, but that's to be expected.
  • This is definitely a 5 star. Free public swimming pool. Heaps of covered BBQ & Picnic tables. Lifeguard. Clean toilets. Ample parking space. Perfect view and strolling place. No regrets paying my taxes seeing and having a facilities like this. Well maintained lagoon.
  • Another great spot in Redcliffe. Lots of things to do for kids of all ages.
  • Love it kid safe and they have a blast, always busy on the weekends and school holidays, if you plan on spending a bit of time there get in early to get a decent spot. Is well worth going for several hours take meat for bbq or pack a lunch or buy it, plenty options
  • Great public pool. Is even better at night when the crowd is gone. However, changing facilities can be filthy at times.
