Deception Bay is a suburb located in the Moreton Bay Region on the coast of Queensland approximately 32 km’s north of Brisbane.
Situated at the southern end of the bay with the same name it was discovered by John Oxley in 1823 who thought the bay was a shallow river and hence named it “Deception Bay”.
Originally established as grazing and pastoral land the area is now a mostly growing urban residential sprawl.
The town has a major supermarket and fast food outlets, a sporting complex, a swimming complex, bowls club, soccer fields, a Garden of Remembrance, and 3 schools and a light commercial area.
Cottonwood Park, situated along the re-designed esplanade incorporates timber boardwalks, a cycleway, barbeques, viewing platforms and picnic facilities for families and visitors to enjoy and relax.
A notable resident of Deception Bay was Dr Joseph Bancroft, renowned as a pioneer in experimenting with native plants for health benefits and through his meat-works, the preservation of meat, fish and vegetables.
On the foreshore at low tide, visitors can explore the mudflats and will find two unusual baths that have been excavated out of bedrock. Named Bath No 1 and Bath No 2, these curious structures were created in the late 1800’s by Dr Bancroft as a type of hydrotherapy unit for his sick wife to bath in the salt water.
