Capalaba is arguably the biggest suburb in Redlands Coast with two large shopping centres, commercial, cultural and community facilities, comparative only to the two shopping centres at Victoria Point.
At 14ha of open grassed areas, Capalaba Regional Park is a family attraction. There is a diverse playground complete with flying fox, timber fort and slides as well as cycling circuits, walking paths, barbeque facilities and toilets. To cater for concerts and festivals there is a stage. Capalaba also has one of the biggest skate and BMX facilities in South East Queensland.
If you love the bush, it is well worth visiting the Redlands IndigiScapes Centre on the outskirts of Capalaba. This environmental facility is dedicated to local native plants and wildlife. There is the nursery for plants, take a stroll around the parklands, botanic gardens, see the 400-year-old Tallowwood tree or have a bite to eat in the café.
Commuting: Opposite from Capalaba Central shopping centre is the bus interchange and car park. Transdev Queensland operates regular bus services, with a 24-hour weekend bus from Brisbane to Victoria Point. The closest train station is Birkdale on the Cleveland – Central line.
