Our driver was very friendly. Talked about Brisbane on way to ferry. Took fun ferry ride over to Stadbroke Island. Guide tried his best to find a koala, kangaroo and sea turtles in the wild, and we did see them! The stop at the lake, the lunch and the hike around the cliff area were all nice. The walking might be a little strenuous for someone with difficulty walking, but we all enjoyed it and had lovely views. Great day in all!

Perfect. Guide cheerful and knowledgeable. Needs to show respect for Christians and refrain from his careless use of Jesus name. He showed respect for aborigine myth, but none for the true Creator. Lovely man otherwise.

BRILLIANT. This day trip was so good. The scenery was very good and we saw koalas up trees as well. There was opportunity to have a swim. We went very interesting short walks along very scenic boardwalks. The lunch was nice too. I would say it is a very excellent trip. Harrison was our guide and he was extremely good at his job. I would go again just to have such an enjoyable day out.

The Stradbroke tour was excellent. Easy day beautiful not to be missed scenery and a lovely lunch. If swimming have your this under your clothes, don't change back until you swim after lunch. There are 3 places to swim and limited time to change so this gives you the most of your day.
