Stradbroke Island 4WD Day Trip from Brisbane

Spot wildlife such as dolphins, turtles, and whales on this hassle-free day trip from Brisbane to Stradbroke Island. Enjoy other activities such as swimming, a BBQ on the beach, and a walk to see koalas, all without the stress of having to make transport connections or buy ferry tickets yourself. A fun, relaxed day out in nature for the whole family.

What to Expect
After pickup from your hotel in Brisbane, head toward Cleveland to board the fast water taxi across Moreton Bay. Arrive in Dunwich on Stradbroke Island and start the drive to Brown Lake. Stop for morning tea and there is also time to take a swim in the freshwater lake.

 Leave Brown Lake and head east to Main Beach. Travel along Main Beach by 4WD and stop to feel the sand between your toes or to take another swim.  Return to the 4WD and head to Point Lookout. From Point Lookout South Gorge, there is the opportunity to spot turtles, dolphins, manta rays and sharks as well as humpback whales in season (June to November each year). There are over a thousand resident dolphins in this area.

Leave North Gorge and travel to Flinders Beach for a BBQ on the beach for lunch. Whilst lunch is being prepared, you can have a game of beach frisbee, try boogie boards, or take more photos, sunbake or just simply relax.

After lunch, there is time to take a walk along the beach before heading to Amity Point where you are likely to see our koalas. In Amity Point take a walk along the getting before the return drive to Dunwich Terminal to board the vehicular ferry back to Clevland. You'll be dropped off at your Brisbane hotel, where your tour ends.

Such a great experience — even for QLD locals

We saw koalas, kangaroos, soooo many whales, pods of dolphins, a turtle, and some of the most beautiful beaches you’ll ever see. Of course, we probably were really lucky — maybe you won’t always see all this in one trip, for various reasons (the weather,...More
