A great opportunity to spend the day with the family catching up over a BBQ lunch.
We will head up past Toorbul and Donnybrook, then onto Mission Point and, weather & tide permitting, may enter Tripcony Bight.
We will make a stop to cook up some sausages on the BBQ and have a bite to eat before turning around and making our way back to Bribie.
Included in the price is Morning Tea, BBQ lunch with Bread Rolls & Salads.
A trip to Bribie Island isn’t complete without a cruise aboard the Ferryman. Experience the natural beauty of the Pumicestone Passage, see the majestic Glasshouse Mountains and visit many areas only accessible on one of our tours. Ferryman Cruises offers a range of Cruises of the Pumicestone Passage and its Marine Park and is also available for charter for your private function. Whether it be a Chartered Service or a scenic cruise for a day out on the water, Ferryman Cruises has something for everyone. The Ferryman cruises up the Pumicestone Passage which runs between Bribie Island and the mainland towards Caloundra and takes in the shipwreck of the SS Avon, grand views of the Glasshouse Mountains, then the township of Toorbul, and follows the historic channel that Mathew Flinders found over 200 years ago – past Donnybrook.

The run in to Poverty Creek Camp site was definitely not suited to a road van.
White Patch on Bribie is the starting point for the trip in to Poverty Creek. It was bitumen to White Patch,then things change dramatically.
The track from White Patch to the camp site was 7 km of soft sand and in places deeply rutted. We had done a reconnaissance trip on the Thursday before taking the van in to ensure that it was ok.
We did need to drop the tyre pressures on both the car and the van for the sandy conditions (as you must do ).
