From Gold Coast: North Stradbroke Island Sunset Tour

1. From Gold Coast: North Stradbroke Island Sunset Tour

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 Gold Coast at 8:30 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 Gold Coast is about 7:30 PM. See less

Enjoy your first group meal, where you will meet your guide and get to know your fellow guests. The next morning, you will begin the Brisbane Valley Rail Trail (BVRT). On day three, you continue on toward Ipswitch. Keep an eye out for wildlife including koala, echidna, and emu. The incredibly well restored rail stations on route make great photo opportunities. You will be transferred to the luxurious Hidden Vale Resort, complete with beautiful natural surrounds in the Lockyer Valley. On day four, after an early breakfast, commence with a gentle uphill hike. Keep your eyes peeled for wallabies as you cross open woodland forest to Spicers Canopy.

There is now time to unwind, take a dip in the hot tub, and have a hot shower before your chef prepares an evening meal. After dinner, enjoy an outdoor fire as you gaze up to the amazing night sky. The next day, you will set out on a path that has only been travelled by a select few. You’ll have the opportunity to look for goannas, wedge tail eagles, wallabies, and the endangered Glossy Black Cockatoo. You will continue climbing, as you break above the tree line and are rewarded with panoramic views of the Great Dividing Range. There is one final push before lunch, using a support rope to climb up to where the trail leads from a drier grass tree plateau. Enjoy a well-deserved lunch before pushing on for the last 2 hours of the hike. Finally, you will arrive at the luxurious Spicers Peak Lodge, where refreshing towels and beverages will be waiting for you.

What people are saying about Brisbane

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.

It was an amazing experience.. Rio was very professional, knowledgeable and accommodating... although all the locations were breathtaking, my favourite parts was the brown lake and the lookout point. The views were simply stunning!!! I'm so glad I took this tour
