Koalas on Stradbroke Island

Sleepy Koala in the Gum Tree

At Dunwich, where the ferry arrives at Dunwich jetty, is the bus stop where you take the bus to travel the Stradbroke Island. Travelers stand and wait for the bus but few actually look up into the tree that is right above the Bus Stop. It is this tree that often has a koala usually sleeping in a fork up high

To travel to Dunwich and Stradbroke Island you take the Train or Bus 250 from Brisbane to Cleveland Station, and then the free Yellow Bus that goes to Cleveland Jetty which is where the ferries to the island leave from. The ferry will always wait for the bus, so don’t worry about being late for the ferry. A fare is $5 each way and you can buy a ticket at the office or simply purchase one from the ticket collector on board.

There are two ferries that go to Dunwich. Both start at the same location, and one goes to Dunwich Jetty, Stradbroke Ferries, and the other, the Stradbroke Gold Flyer, goes to Stradbroke Island Bus Stop which is next to the Oval.
