What you'll do

ADVENTURE!
Brisbane's best kept secret... North Stradbroke Island. This incredible island is located just 90 minutes from the CBD. We will travel from the city and take the drive on ferry over to the island and this is where our adventure begins!
Our small groups are able to visit the Captain's bridge to see how they drive the ferry and take a photo in the captains chair!

Once we arrive on Stradbroke Island, we head up to the famous North Gorge Walk. On this walk we will look 35km down Main Beach to the Gold Coast where you can see the skyscrapers from the point. Along the wooden pathways you can see kangaroos relaxing in the sun with the ocean and cliffs as a backdrop!
Out in the ocean you will see dolphins, turtles, schools of large fish, sea eagles picking up their lunch and some seasonal marine life including manta rays in summer and humpback whales in winter!

Our next stop is a secret location to look for koalas in the trees. Following that we enjoy a relaxing lunch at the Stradbroke Island Hotel.

Our next stop is Amity Point to search for koalas and dolphins who often come in to edge of the water so you can see them close!
Our next stops are Myora Springs (fresh water spring) and Brown Lake, a tea tree oiled lake. This refreshing rinse leaves you free of sea salt!
Other things to note
Stairs on the North Gorge Walk and walking up to 1.5km in total over the whole trip

I am a local Brisbane guy who has a huge passion for travel! After spending 2 years marketing for international events in Brisbane, I started this tour business in 2016 and have been loving this industry! I have moved away from my plumbing and marketing qualifications to live the tour guide lifestyle and create a future for myself that gives me the lifestyle I dream of! Beach, adventure, meeting new people, showing people my backyard and getting involved in building the community are all super important to me! I'm all about live music, outdoor exploring and doing wild activities like scuba diving, surfing, sky diving and heaps more!

Loved it! Such a good trip, Tim really took care of us and took our desires into consideration. Some on the tour forgot swimmers so he brought us to a place we could buy! Even had an ice cream stop on the way because it was so hot. Very relaxed and enjoyable trip, prefect escape even for one that has been there before.

Nice easy relaxing day out of Brisbane. Great adventure, for any age, as very laid back day. Tim sorts everything, so none of the hassle of a day out. Tim is very approachable and chilled.

So much fun today! Not only did we get to see kangaroos, koalas, whales and the incredible sights all around North Stradbroke, we also got to soak up the sun and eat some really great and interesting aussie food. Tim's amazing at what he does, his passion for the island really shines through and his energy after four months of no tours on Straddie because of covid made the trip 10x better. One hundred percent worth it.

Great tour. Tim and his friend knew everything about the island. Beautiful walk, swimming in the ocean, spotting local wildlife like koala's, kangaroos, dolphins and birds. Great hamburgers. The guys had a good sense of humor and were very relaxed. They had a lot of good stories. We enjoyed it very much!
