Beachmere is a township at the mouth of the Caboolture River where it enters Moreton Bay, 38 km north of Brisbane. Positioned on a small peninsula formed by the river and Deception Bay, Beachmere was somewhat inaccessible, and was mainly a fishing community. When first settled by Europeans, Beachmere's access road could be impassable during flood time. Population: 3,888 (2011). 'Beachmere' means a beach upon marshy ground. Beachmere occupies land belonging to the Indigenous Gubi Gubi people
