Coochie is only 35km from Brisbane CBD,

Right on the shoreline near the Victoria Point jetty and boat ramp, parking places are usually available, but check the signs! Some places are reserved for boaties with trailers, or have strictly-monitored time limits. On busier days, park in a designated space in the 'top' car park within the tree-filled park at the end of Colburn Avenue, or along Colburn Avenue itself.
