A really beautiful place to visit and the daytrip does it justice. We covered everything - spotting wildlife (koalas, kangaroos, even whales in the distance), a beautiful coastal walk, visits to a gorgeous beach and a lovely lake, stopping off other interesting places. The guide was great - knowledgeable, great at pointing out the wildlife to us, and obviously loves what he does and showing it to visitors. A small family-run company and a great experience. Highly recommended!
A great tour of one of the prettiest places I've ever seen. I read some of the reviews and saw that some people had had difficulty finding where to meet the bus so I went over the night before. The instruction "across from the police station" would have worked better if there had been any lighted signage on the police station, it was totally dark. The next morning I saw that the instruction works better in the daylight.
Tour was provided by Goanna tours which I have used before many years ago to do trips to Frasier and Moreton island. I was delighted to see them still going.
The tour guide Brian was a font of information not only about the island and it's wildlife but also on Brisbane and it's surrounding area.
The island itself was beautiful and I wished we could have done a two day tour so as to spend more time there but we did manage to see the key spots and get a great idea of island life.
The wildlife was amazing. We saw in order: a baby goanna, maned geese/wood duck, koala (2 of them!) dolphins (knee deep in the sea with a mum and it's baby!), green turtles, a manta ray, more dolphins! and kangaroos.
The views were incredible, the weather perfect and the sea was crystal clear and lovely and warm.
Shane was an excellent guide, went out of his way to show us the sights and Koalas and Roos, great relaxing day tour
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.
I had a excellent day. Couldn't believe we saw so many koalas and kangaroos. Guide was very good. Ferry trip over was excellent. Swim in Brown Lake I will remember for long time. Island is very beautiful even though when i went weather was not very good. But I really enjoyed this trip and would recommend it.
It was a wonderful experience , guide made it a very pleasant trip and the boat trip was wonderful, lovely island.
The whole tour was fantastic. Great guide, great day! Love Stradbrook!
My only fault wouldbe that the instructions on where exactly to catch the tour bus at Roma was not descriptive enough and I had to run around a bit panicking to get to the correct bust stop, otherwise, would highly recommend it!
