ABOUT THIS EXPERIENCE
On this Eco day tour to South Stradbroke Island , you will board our fast 6m adventure boat in a small group with only 4-8 other participants to explore the Gold Coast Broadwater within Moreton Bay Marine Park and the beautiful South Stradbroke Island, an untouched conservation park right at our Gold Coast doorstep. Our environmental permits allow us to take you on an easy guided walk across the island from Currigee Inlet with the high chance to spot wallabies, kangaroos, koalas and shore birds in their natural habitat. Enjoy the chance to see dolphins, rays or turtles and rare birds whilst cruising through the Gold Coast Broadwater on our vessel. At the end of the tour, we will take you to Tipplers cafe for a cold drink, coffee, tea or snack or some more nature walking if you wish.
