What You Can Expect
When you arrive at the island, your friendly and experienced guide will show you the highlights. You’ll visit Brown Lake, named for the clear tea-colored water tinted by leaves from the surrounding forest. Relax on the lake’s white-sand beach or take a refreshing swim!
Then head to the North Gorge Walk to Point Lookout, following your guide along a well-marked trail and boardwalk. Look for turtles, dolphins or manta rays swimming in the waters below you. At the point, marvel at Whale Rock, where water sprays from the rock like a whale’s spout. You may even see the real thing when humpback whales migrate through these waters from May to October.
The interior of the island is also home to native wildlife. Your guide will take you to spots where you can hope to see kangaroos lazing in the sun or koalas chomping on eucalyptus leaves. Next, visit Myora Springs, a picturesque fresh water spring surrounded by tropical forest. Myora Springs made history as the site of a significant colonial-era battle between the military and local Aborigines.
Throughout the day, you’ll make stops in several small developed areas, including Cylinder Beach, Frenchman’s Beach, the historic town of Dunwich, and the fishing village of Amity. Enjoy an included lunch at Stradbroke Island Hotel, plus breaks for morning and afternoon tea (own expense).
After a thorough introduction to the highlights of the island, enjoy free time in the afternoon to explore at your leisure. At the designated time, rejoin your group for the return trip to Brisbane.
Great tour and great guide!
Shane was excellent and managed to work our activities in around the scattered rain showers.
Had a fabulous day out with four young people- Shane, tour guide picked us up at 0745 am- Stradbroke Island amazed us - so much beautiful scenery , beaches, and only 45 kms from Brisbane- The 1 hour ferry ride was good with plenty of refreshments on board to choose from- would definitely recommend
The tour was punctual, and our guide was friendly and helpful.
Brilliant tour, loved it
The tour was the perfect mix of information and time to explore on our own. The guide was great and we went to several interesting places. Lots of inclusions. It was a lovely day out.
Great tour guide, wonderful sites. Loved it!
This tour was amazing!
Overall was a fun tour and good value for money. The guide picked us up from near our hotel and also dropped us off. The package also came with a delicious lunch of fish n chips at the Stradbroke Island Hotel. The walk along the North Gorge to Point Lookout was probably the highlight - some amazing views. Highly recommended.
Wonderful relaxing small group tour ! We saw beautiful places on this island which is a popular getaway for the Brisbanites close to the city but away from the bustle and hectic. The tour guide was very nice and knowledgeable and the company of our fellow travellers from Sydney was enjoyable and interesting.
