Beachtrekkers offers you a full day tour, starting with hotel/accomodation pick-ups from 6:50 - 7:30am and drop-offs around 5:30pm. After all pick-ups have been made, we head north to catch the car ferry to North Stradbroke Island, one of the world's largest sand islands. On the way we make a brief visit to 'Yatala Pies' for a toilet break and a quick breakfast, if necessary, before continuing on to Cleveland - 'The Gateway to Moreton Bay', where we may be able to see some wallabies and wild koalas in their natural habitat, before boarding the ferry.
From Cleveland to North Stradbroke Island is a 45 minute journey across the waters of Moreton Bay, on the spacious modern car-ferry 'Quandamooka'. Morning tea is served on the ferry, which you can enjoy as you stroll around the decks, taking in the panoramic views of Brisbane, Moreton Island and Stradbroke Island, while keeping an eye out for dolphins and dugongs in the calm waters of the bay.
Weather and tides do determine the exact itinerary for each day, so every tour is unique. Some of the possible tour highlights are:
A delicious BBQ lunch and swim at the beach are an essential part of the day. Relax on the beach or take a quick swim while we set-up and prepare your meal. Lunch consists of barbequed steak and sausages*, with a light salad on the side, all prepared and cooked while you enjoy the nearby beach. We supply body-boards, snorkelling equipment, fishing rods, and beach games( i.e. frisbees, bats and balls, etc), all for your free use during the time we are there. (Weather and tide permitting)
*Vegetarian meals can be catered for if prior notice is given.
After lunch, the tour concludes with another cruise across beautiful Moreton Bay, for our return to the Gold Coast / Brisbane. Our drivers will return you to your accommodation or to a nearby shopping area if you desire.
We thoroughly recommend that on the day you bring:
The tour price includes all transfers, (including the ferry), morning tea, BBQ lunch, afternoon tea, and beach equipment usage.
Japanese and Spanish speaking guides are available upon request.
