Deception Bay lies 40 minutes north of Brisbane in the Moreton Bay Regional Council.

Deception Bay Investor Moreton InvestorThe peninsula was named by Lt. John Oxley in 1823 who thought the bay was a river because of its unusual shallowness.When he realised his mistake he renamed the area Deception Bay.

While the area earned an unfortunate reputation in the 1980s and 1990s for its crime rate and high unemployment, it has changed into a thriving coastal suburb, thanks investment and development.

The area is a base for fishing trawlers off Moreton Bay and a tourism centre north of Brisbane. It’s also becoming an increasingly popular spot for day trippers and tourists, who take advantage of the bay’s relaxed atmosphere.

The area was once home to large parcels of land supporting dairying and farming and while some large blocks remain today, most have been subdivided to provide housing for a growing community.

Streets close to the water have low-set weatherboard homes on small blocks. Larger brick homes on larger blocks are available away from the water.

The Deception Bay Shopping Centre is one of the area’s major shopping complexes. Westfield North Lakes is also only a 10 minute car trip south.

Local schools include Deception Bay State School, Deception Bay State High School, Deception Bay North State School, Christ the King Catholic Primary School and Moreton Downs State School.

Deception Bay’s proximity to both Caboolture and Redcliffe means that it is surrounded by areas which offer a relaxed, yet rich and diverse lifestyle, with beautiful beaches and stunning mountain scenery — all less than an hour from Brisbane.
