The main township of Ningi is located on Bribie Island Road. At the northern area of Ningi is a housing estate called Bribie Pines, mostly inhabited by the elderly. There are two other housing estates in the area: Grey Gums Estate located on the road out to Godwin Beach, and the newly developed Sandstone Lakes. It is surrounded by developments ranging from acreage to half acre blocks many of which are classified as rural residential as well as rural properties and state forests. It boasts a Medieval festival, WWII bunkers and an Aboriginal Bora ring. The origin of the suburb's name is from the Aboriginal Ningi Ningi group.[2]
