Deception Bay Heritage Trail

Sports and Recreation Facilities

The Deception Bay Heritage Trail covers about four kilometres and can be completed in a 90-minute stroll. Over 10 unique sculptural markers, made from brushed and painted aluminium on structural aluminium pipe, identify each heritage location.

The abstract forms of the markers were inspired by mangrove leaves in various states of growth and decay, mangrove root systems and the foreshore rock formations that can be seen at the northern end of the Bay at low tide.

Deception Bay Heritage Tail markers include:
Bathing Pool
An Inquiring Mind
Matchbox Mozzies
Mrs Bancroft’s Bath
