Full description
Spend the day on North Stradbroke Island with a guide. Enjoy scenic walks, beautiful lakes, and relaxing beaches as you learn about the island's history, culture, and wildlife. On the way back to the mainland watch as the sun sets into the sea. Start your morning with a departure from Brisbane at 9:30 AM. After a 45-minute drive to the ferry port, have the chance to purchase breakfast at the port or on the ferry during the crossing. Arrive at North Stradbroke Island and deboard the ferry to head to your first stop, Brown Lake. On the way there your tour guide will talk about the island as well as the historic and cultural importance of the Quandamooka people. Refresh and reenergize with the fresh and beautiful water of the lake. From there and after a quick stop at Myora Springs, your guide will take you to the northwest side of the island, a perfect lookout spot to take pictures and go for a walk at Cylinder Beach. Then head for one of the main attractions of the day, the Gorge Walk. On this 40 - 45 minute walk, take in views of the Coral Sea and its incredibly rich marine life, from manta rays, turtles, to dolphins and more. After the Gorge Walk, take a break to have lunch at Point Lookout. Following your lunch break, the tour will head to Amity Point. Your tour guide will take you on a walk to search for koalas in the wild. Optionally, if koala-spotting is not your thing, spend even more time at the beach instead. Conclude your day with a ferry ride back to the mainland in time to watch the sunset from the sea. Your expected arrival time in Brisbane is about 7:30 PM.

What a wonderful, easy way to see so much of Stradbroke! They pick you up near the Central Station and whisk you away in a comfortable, air conditioned van right on to the ferry then on to the island for your tour. Our guide was full on information about the island and its history. We were able to enjoy each stop and never felt rushed. I would highly recommend this tour! Thank you, Orlando!

The day trip started an hour earlier than planned, as the scheduled ferry was already fully booked. Brown Lake was beautiful to see. The beach was beautiful and we did a beach walk. You had to take care of lunch yourself, but there are plenty of places where you can get it. The Gorge Walk was really breathtaking with nice views. However, we did not visit Amity point, and we did not experience the sunset either.

We had Rio as our tour guide and he was amazing. The tour was so worth it. Brown Lake is a natural delight, Cylinder beach is beautiful (I recommend BYO lunch as we had to wait a long time for our lunch here) and the walk at point lookout was fabulous. Highly recommend for an accesible and not exhausting day trip.
