What You Can Expect
Once on the island, you’ll see all the sights, including Brown Lake where you can take a swim from the lake’s white-sand beaches. A natural spa, the lake is named for the natural tea tree that gives its waters therapeutic qualities.
Take a walk through the gorge to the island’s headland at Point Lookout, where water blows up from Whale Rock. You’ll spot turtles swimming in the water below you, or perhaps dolphins and manta rays. In winter, from May to October, keep your eyes peeled for migrating humpback whales.
Away from the water, you might see kangaroos lazing in the sun or koalas in the gum trees chewing eucalyptus leaves. You’ll also visit the island’s main resorts, including Cylinder, Frenchman’s Beach, Dunwich and the fishing village of Amity. At Myora Springs, hear about the battle that occurred here in colonial times between the military and local Aborigines.
During your tour, make stops for morning tea, lunch and afternoon tea (own expense). After lunch, enjoy free time to explore North Stradbroke Island at your leisure, or if you’ve chosen the upgrade, go sandboarding down the island’s dunes. Instruction and professional equipment are provided.
Beautiful beaches and great tour guide (Brian). Wonderful guided walk. We enjoyed the ferry ride and our time in the beachside town for shopping and lunch. But the best part was seeing koala bears and kangaroos in their natural habitat! There weren't many of them but it was thrilling nonetheless.
I just wanted to write and say that our tour with Brian on Sunday to Straddie was one of the best days I’ve ever had. Brian is absolutely fantastic, he is such a wealth of knowledge but also a great blend of entertainment and laid back good humour ! Thank you very much for a fabulous day out, and please pass on our thanks and compliments to Brian who took us sandboarding – there were only the two of us and we had such a blast !!! It was fantastic. Well worth it. Go.
