From Brisbane: Bribie Island 4WD Nature Adventure

1. From Brisbane: Bribie Island 4WD Nature Adventure

Your guide begins the adventure by letting the tires down on the 4WD and hitting the surf beach. Make your way towards Fort Bribie WWII Bunkers along the sand. Stop to view wildlife and the various lagoons along the way. After an informative, historical tour of the WWII bunkers, this is when the real adventure begins! The scenery changes from rugged Australian bush to open forests, swampy wetlands and dirt roads, all in the blink of an eye as you head inland and hit the 4WD tracks of the Bribie Island National Park. Following a stop for lunch, enjoy the opportunity to see local kangaroos, goannas and other wildlife at Poverty Creek. Next enjoy the serenity and the stunning views of The Glass House Mountains. After a picnic lunch and group photo in front of the Pumicestone Passage, continue along the 4WD track to White Patch.

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.

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.

Everything was perfect! We loved the tour course, Jason - our tour guide, and the lunch as well. I got to see quite a few kangaroos and wallabies around. We experienced a diverse range of wildlife which was much more fun than I expected. Lagoons were seriously the best. Jason was a thoughtful and informative guide, a good driver, and even better, an amazing photographer. He made our day. If I have a chance to visit Brisbane again, I would definitely come back for this:)

Best day trip out of Brisbane!

I had the best time on the Bribie Island tour! We chose the pick up option in the city and were so happy with the service. The tour itself was so fun. Our guide gave us a detailed history of the island and showed us tons of wildlife, including jellyfish and a sea snake. Lunch was amazing and the service was even better. I would highly recommend this tour for students looking for a fun weekend trip!
