Coastal Island Safaris

Multiple Locations

North Stradbroke Island, the world’s second largest sand island, lies within easy reach of tourists visiting Brisbane and the coast. It offers Coral Sea beaches of pristine white sand, wildlife and rich forests, wetlands and spring fed lakes. Coastal Island Safaris run day tours of the island.

After leaving Cleveland, as the ferry crosses Moreton Bay, spot whales in season, dugongs and dolphins, pelicans and sea eagles.

After arrival at Dunwich, the exciting four wheel drive component of the tour is exhilarating but safe. The first sand track drive ends with a sweeping panorama of coastal islands, distant Brisbane, the hinterlands and border mountains.

Visit spring-fed lakes, teaming with bird life. Via 18 Mile Swamp, a gorgeous wetland of water lilies, to Main Beach, a prime whale-watching spot in June-November each year. Stop near Point Lookout at the North Gorge Walk, a maintained track through native flora, filled with birdsong, to a rocky outcrop with views far out to sea. Next stop is Flinder's Beach, for some fishing, swimming or simply enjoy the barbecue feast for lunch. The pleasant drive home winds past a tree-sheltered cove where local boats anchor, to meet the ferry for the return crossing.
