1. From Brisbane: Stradbroke Island Day Tour
Take a day trip from Brisbane to Stradbroke Island and discover Queensland's most popular island and its National Park. The park is almost completely controlled by the aboriginal Quandamooka people. At almost 40 kilometers long, Stradbroke Island is the second-largest sand island in the world. Located just off the coast from Brisbane, it has beautiful beaches, a rugged coastline and forests that are home to large numbers of kangaroos and koala bears. The crystal clear waters are safe to swim in year round. Following your transfer from Brisbane, enjoy a memorable experience where the waters teem with large schools of dolphins, manta rays and turtles. All of these creatures can be seen from Point Lookout. The lookout is considered Australia’s best land-based vantage point for spotting migrating humpback whales in the winter. During the tour, you will enjoy a 40-minute cruise across Moreton Bay, visit Cylinder Beach, where you are free to swim if you want and walk the North Gorge to admire the rugged views.
