North Stradbroke Island

January 09, 2018


Today I booked a day tour to North Stradbroke Island from Brisbane. We took the ferry for a 30-minute crossing of Moreton Bay to reach the island.
Our first stop was Brown Lake, a perched freshwater lake bounded by melaleuca and tea-tree bushland. It has special significance to the local Aboriginal people.
Our next stop was Amity Point, looking for dolphins near the jetty but unfortunately we couldn't spot any. We were lucky enough to spot a koala. So amazing to see them in their natural enviroment instead of a wildlife park for once.
After lunch we walked to Cylinder Beach one of the most popular beaches on the island.
Our last stop was Point Lookout. The North Gorge Walk, a 1.2 kilometre boardwalk, offers breathtaking views. We could also spot some sea turtles but they were too far to make a decent picture. I could have spend hours here but unfortunately we had to rush a bit to catch our ferry. Still this trip was a blast and I definitely recommend visiting this island.
