2. Gold Coast & Brisbane Island Scenic Flight & 4WD Day Tour
Your Island adventure begins from the Gold Coasts International airport. Escape the city and enjoy a 30min scenic flight past the city skyline, then across the beautiful turquoise waters of Moreton bay marine park, spotting all the local marine life en-route to the island oasis that is North Stradbroke (Minjerribah). Arriving at the island airport, you’ll disembark to meet your 4WD tour guide, aussie local legend ‘Barefoot Dave’. The first on the agenda will be morning tea, either at the airfield beside the local kangaroos or at Brown Lake, a postcard perfect Ti Tree oil lake both spots ideal for a morning tea break, enjoy hot tea and fresh home made aussie damper with jam, to settle into island time. You’ll then be guided all over the northern tracks and beaches of the island, learning about some of the incredible history and aboriginal culture of the island while spotting plenty of wildlife along the way, Koalas, Kangaroos & Eagles to name a few. Dave will find the perfect beach or lake side oasis to set up the BBQ and cook up an Aussie feast to enjoy while you soak in the beautiful sights and sounds of this natural paradise. After lunch you’ll make your way to the stunning North Gorge at Point Lookout to walk around the cliff top boardwalk. This is Queensland’s most Easterly point, so you’ll have a good chance of spotting humpback whales (late May early Nov), dolphins, turtles, manta rays, sharks & schools of large fish. The cliff top walk conveniently ends just outsides Dave’s favourite Gelato shop, just in time for an afternoon treat to enjoy while sitting on the cliff top over looking the pristine turquoise water below. From Point Lookout you’ll head back to the island airfield for your return afternoon flight back to the Gold Coast, It’ll be an Island Adventure you & your loved ones will never forget!
