The coastal city of Redcliffe is 28 kilometres north of the Brisbane city centre. Redcliffe is situated on a peninsula overlooking Moreton Bay to the North and East, Bramble bay to the South and the saltwater Hays Inlet and mangroves to the West. Redcliffe Residents are fortunate to have a rich and diverse natural environment on their doorstep with the bay and inlet so close by. The electorate also takes in the land mass of Moreton Island to the East. Moreton Island is 95% National Park and is home to the Bulwer, Cowan Cowan and Kooringal townships and Tangalooma resort.

The name Redcliffe is said to have come from a physical feature recorded by Matthew Flinders in 1799, who noted rocks at Woody Point, strongly imposed with iron, which he later named Red Cliff Point.

The electorate boundaries are Hercules Road to the West, the coastline around the peninsula and Moreton Island. Suburbs include Kippa-Ring, Clontarf, Woody Point, Redcliffe, Margate, Scarborough, Newport and Moreton Island. The electorate of Redcliffe is home to some 50,000 residents.
