Bribie Passage Estate - 1962 - Ningi Creek - Toorbul Point

The lots of land mentioned below were first offered for sale in 1920 and advertised as The Koopa Estate. In 1962 construction began on the new Bribie Island Bridge and the final stage of the bitumen road to Toorbul Point increasing the potential interest in building holiday homes in the area.

Bribie Passage Estate, Toorbul Point - in 1962

158 lots - the estate would later become known as the township of Ningi

Follow the Bruce Highway to Caboolture. Turn right at the Caboolture Post Office and continue on along the new Toorbul Point Road...

This is the resort area of amazing potential - The Bribie Bridge, unlocking the island playground, is already nearing completion. Work on the final stage of bitumen road to Toorbul Point is now underway, and will be completed within two months. 

Land already in strong demand - last year the first section of this estate (consisting of 140 blocks) was sold out within a few weeks.

Only 35 miles from Brisbane - less than an hour's drive on bitumen roads from Brisbane...

No finer fishing, swimming, boating - Bribie Passage has long been recognised as one of the finest fishing grounds in the State. ... Swimming enthusiasts may choose between the white sandy sheltered beaches of the Passage, or make the two-mile bitumen run to the ocean-side surf.
