Amazing trip! Stradbroke Island is beautiful, with lots of walking around, seeing not only nature in land but the animals in the ocean I adore this!. Had a swim in the beach, and with a small group we got to enjoy without hurrying up. Our guide, Harry, was great, really attentive and sweet, even gave me tips for the rest of my trip. Strongly recommend this!

A fantastic tour to a really beautiful island. I in particular appreciated the knowledge of the tour guide Harrison concerning marine life and we were lucky to spot some whales far away, some dolphins close by, one sea turtle some koalas and kangaroos as well.

Excellent guide Brian educated us on science of the sand islands, a bit of history, botany, all with a charming sense of humor. Whale sightings were few and far off, the sandy beaches pristine, a beautiful day out.
