    What a fantastic day! Our tour guide was knowledgeable and showed us all around the island. Some of the day’s highlights included seeing 3 koalas!!, ospreys feeding a chick at their nest, a feeding frenzy beneath the cliffs of the Gorge Walk at Point Lookout, and a visit to Brown Lake. Although it was hot outside, the bus’ airconditioning gave us a break

    The three of us did this tour today and we had a great time. Our guide was able to spot wildlife (kangaroos, koala, pelicans, bush stone curlew) throughout the trip and we also spotted some dolphins, turtle, and humpback whales! Definitely recommend this tour. The minivan was comfortable and the lunch at the Stradbroke hotel was delicious. We learnt a lot about the local Quandamooka’s culture from our tour guide. Highly recommend!

Unspoilt sandy beaches, warm clear water, lazy lunches, and a relaxed vibe are all part of the quintessential island getaway, but sometimes you don’t have to travel too far to find yourself in paradise — especially if you happen to be staying in the Queensland capital. This North Stradbroke Island Tour from Brisbane is the perfect introduction to the world’s second largest sand island, and one that is home to a wide range of environments and ecosystems. You’ll enjoy the services of a knowledgeable guide to show you ‘Straddie’s’ (as the locals call it) many landmarks, and travel in air-conditioned comfort. Don’t forget your swimmers and towel; there are plenty of opportunities along the way to enjoy a dip!

Departing the Brisbane CBD, you’ll head east towards the bayside suburb of Cleveland — the departure point for the North Stradbroke Island ferry. The cruise across Moreton Bay takes about 50 minutes and is an experience in itself! Spend your time keeping watch for dolphins and other marine dwellers, or relax with a coffee and snack from the onboard cafe (at your own expense).

Once on the island, you’ll spend the next few hours visiting all the main places of interest. One of the highlights is the North Gorge Walk around a headland on the eastern side of the island. The coastal scenery here is truly spectacular, and you may even be able to spot whales offshore.

The fishing village of Amity is another highlight, as is a walk on the beach at Amity Point. Here you may be lucky enough to see dolphins coming all the way into the shoreline! A stroll along the boardwalk at Myora Springs presents a contrasting environment of rainforest, mangroves, and crystal-clear creeks. You’ll also visit the unique and beautiful Brown lake.

A day on North Stradbroke Island presents endless opportunities for wildlife spotting. The island has a large population of koalas, along with kangaroos and wallabies (often seen lazing in the sun!). Your guide will know the best places to look for wildlife, so you’re almost guaranteed of a sighting.

You’ll have the opportunity to purchase lunch from a local cafe during the tour (at your own expense).
