Straddie Kingfisher Tours

Multiple Locations

Straddie Kingfisher Tours began over 15 years ago because Dave and his wife Margaret have such a passion for the Island. They just wanted to show this Island Paradise to the world in an eco friendly, informative and sustainable way. Being part of the Island community since 1966 they can offer you that local knowledge and give you that personal touch.

You get to see the wonderful scenic vantage points on Straddie to observe all the dolphins, turtles, manta rays and the Humpback Whales from June to November each year.

Morning tea and their famous barbecue on the beach for lunch has been included for you to enjoy.
You will get to look for koalas and kangaroos as you travel around this Island Paradise and may see many of the 253 different varieties of birds that inhabit the Island.

This tour is conducted at a leisurely pace so you can unwind and really get the feeling of "Straddie" time!

You will have a camera full of memories and a smile to suit.
