Hop on a coach in Brisbane. Relax on the roughly 1-hour ride and enjoy the scenery on the way to the North Stradbroke Island ferry terminal. Catch the ferry across Moreton Bay to Stradbroke, where you'll embark on a specially curated tour of the top sights without worrying about timetables, directions, or navigation.
Stop first at Brown Lake, where you can take a dip or relax on the lakeshore beach. Head over to Myora Springs and learn about its significance to the local Aboriginal people before heading out for a guided walk on the coastal North Gorge Trail. Keep your eye out for migrating humpback whales, turtles, manta rays, and dolphins when you reach Point Lookout, a great spot for photos. In the forest, look for koalas and kangaroos lounging in their natural environment.
Next, visit Stradbroke Island Hotel for an included lunch. Then visit the towns of Amity and Dunwich, as well as Frenchman’s Beach and Cylinder Beach. In the afternoon, you’re free to explore the island at your leisure, a nice balance to the guided portion of your tour.
